I really like hummus. I have a good recipe, but I sometimes add a new ingredient. A few days ago I was thinking of hummus and suddenly thought that it would really go well with deviled ham. So I bought a can of Underwood Deviled Ham (I don't stock it) when I was at the store yesteday. I made hummus when I came home adding the deviled ham. It wasn't horrible; it was just blah. The flavors canceled each other. I once had the same sort of thing happen when I added Worcestershire sauce to deviled eggs. The result had far less taste. That was years ago; I suppose that one devil reminded me of another.

Escargots instead of giblets was another disappointment. I'm glad that it wasn't Thanksgiving. The worst ever was probably the scrambled eggs mixed with bread crumbs. I actually found this in an old promotional cook book. It was disgusting.

We're always discussing good things, but let's discuss bad things on this thread, particularly ideas that seemed to be great ideas but weren't.

With the price of food these days, I don't do much "experimenting".

OP: "The worst ever was probably the scrambled eggs mixed with bread crumbs. I actually found this in an old promotional cook book. It was disgusting."



Growing up in an Italian family whenever anyone made breaded cutlets, eggplant or anything else that could be breaded and shallow fried, the leftover egg wash was mixed with some bread crumbs and fried in the leftover oil. My MIL did the same thing so I don't think this is unusual. Anyway, if you don't add too much bread and maybe add a little extra grated cheese it is delicious. My wife's family likes to dip then in wine or apple cider vinegar though we did not in my family. YUM!!!

I once ordered a flight of oyster shooters in a very good seafood restaurant. There were six shot glasses, each containing an oyster, some type of beer, and a "zinger" (olive, pepper, onion, celery, etc.). It was all I could do to choke those things down. I mean, the sweetness of the oysters was lost in the bitterness of the beer. My wife laughed at the faces I was making. I noticed that item wasn't on the menu the next time we went there.

Oh, and I marinated pork overnight in a pineapple marinade. We all know how that turned out.
