So, my grandma has this recipe

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
She calls it stir-fry but it's basically just chopped up chicken, broccoli, and cauliflower mixed with mayo and chicken bullion....
It sounds disgusting, no?
But it is so delicious, there is nothing like it...
Has anyone else ever heard of anything like this?
And, is there something you secretly enjoy that everyone else thinks is absolutely disgusting? Excluding normal cultural dishes like Menudo, of course....

It reminds me of Skillet Turkey (or Chicken) Divan. Some of those recipes call for mayo.

Chicken breast or Turkey Divan is a classic dish normally served for a ladies luncheon, in an upscale or hotel setting.

It is white meat turkey or chicken sliced on top of steamed broccoli, topped with a rich Mornay sauce. I have never seen a recipe with mayonaise. :lips:

Sausage and Maple Syrup

A lot of people like this in the South actually, but I went a step further when I was a kid and made my self bologna and syrup sandwiches for lunch. I doubt I would still like them today though:)

My grandma eats apple pie with cheddar cheese and tells us "apple pie without the cheese is like a kiss without the squeeze.":crazy:

Though I wouldn't call it disgusting, my son enjoys peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with sliced cheese (american, cheddar, gouda). To me it's kinda weird.

Mayo is basically just oil, with some emulsified egg in it. I've heard of smearing mayo over a turkey or chicken before baking in an oven to keep it moist. The oil clings because its mayo-ized, and precludes having to open the oven so often to baste.

So, the dish doesn't seem so odd to me.

The chicken, veggie and mayo mix doesn't sound too far off from that popular, perhaps overly so, hot dip with mayo, artichoke and grated parm. I probably won't be trying it in the near future, but I can see how it might work out.

Real BBQ lovers quit reading :D a local restaurant serves boiled baby back ribs that are then grilled with a sauce made from 50/50 miracle whip/ketchup with Franks hot sauce added to taste. It is pretty tasty and good once in a while when it is to cold to cook outside. The sauce gets cooked onto the ribs over a gas grill to heat the ribs back up and caramelize the sauce a bit.

I love my peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with Frito corn chips in them. The salt with the jelly and the added crunch appeals to my taste buds.
It's a wonderful thing to be spoiled in the way of food.
