OT - Don't laugh, I like Thousand Island dressing on my chili.

Made a big ole steaming pot of chili this evening as it was cool and drizzly and just felt like chili weather. Not done on the egg, so off topic.
Quite by accident a few years ago, I spilled a big dollop of Thousand Island dressing on some chili, and not being one to throw away food, I ate it anyway, and really liked it. So now, I have been known to drizzle some Thousand Island on my chili instead of my usual dollop of sour cream.
The sour cream cornbread is made from freshly ground cornmeal from a local water driven grist mill and goes very well with chili.
You ever discovered a strange combination by accident that you actually liked?

    Not a Griswold, just an old one that used to belong to my Grannie. She cooked on it for uncounted years before I got it some 30 plus years ago. It has much sentimental value.

    The cornbread recipe is a simple one. One cup white coarse-ground cornmeal (I go ahead and buy the self-rising kind from the mill), one egg, one cup sour cream, 1/4 cup Wesson oil. Heat the skillet with some extra oil in it while mixing up the cornmeal. Once skillet is good and hot, pour the mixture in and bake at 400 for 25 minutes. No sugar, ever...this is cornbread, not cake.

    I agree. Sugar doesn’t belong in corn bread. My grand mother who has been gone 44 years, used to make the best skillet corn bread at breakfast she would fry 4slices of bacon and leave the grease in the cast iron skillet. Then she would pour the batter in it. Sorry I can’t remember more. She had a stroke when I was seven and stayed in bed Five years until the end.

    Epcotisbest, thanks very much for the recipe. I will try it this weekend, and hoist a beer to you at first bite. I am  Right there with you on the sugar comment, I firmly believe that is against every law of nature in a corn bread recipe.
    i trust the skillet will be passed down to a son or daughter with its great history and absolute reverence.

    I like a dollop of pimento cheese in my chilli as well as veg beef soup. 

    Special K (or corn flakes)  on over medium eggs with Texas Pete is good too.

    Peanut butter on a cheeseburger
    I was at a place in Pensacola many years ago that had some specialty hamburgers on their menu and one had peanut butter. It sounded weird enough that I gave it a try. Not bad. Not really something I would go out of my way for again, but interesting to try.

    I like crunchy peanut butter on pancakes. Goes good with real maple syrup.

    I put some Tiger Sauce on chicken and dumplings a while back. That was good, but I like Tiger Sauce on lots of things.

    Pimento cheese is an interesting idea.

    Let me know how you like it made with sour cream. We head up to the Highlands, Cashiers area some. Where is the grist mill up your way?

    I wish I could give you a good reason to try it but nothing comes to mind. It might be the hot and cold together? I just feels wrong eating it without applesauce.

  • Peanut butter on a cheeseburger
    This was mine. We had a dive bar in Colorado that did smash burgers with peanut butter, bacon, and grape jelly. 

    It took a few trips to finally order it but it was stupid good.
