Yesterday, I was invited to an "Around the World in 80 Beers" party, featuring brews from Germany and Belgium. We tasted and rated everything from lemony hefeweizens to a potion reminiscent of liquid beef jerky - which after many grunts and moans, aptly scored 0's all around and was promptly poured down the sink.
The hosts created fabulous Germanesque "Brats in a Blanket," "German Meatballs" and "Un Der Pickles." But it was the "Mustard Krauten" (pronounced moostard krauten) that blew my mind.
Imagine sauerkraut and mustard, blended up in a food processor and smothered on "Brats in a Blanket." I know it sounds kooky, but this combo may be the best surprise I've ever tasted.
What crazy food combo do you love?
