Cinnamon Raisin Banana Bread...With Poached Egg?

I'm definitely not one to shy away from weird food combinations

My philosophy is that there are so many foods that do 
not traditionally go together but, out of fear to experiment, 
many people have not tapped into new sources of flavor

Let's dissect this breakfast for starters...

Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin Bread topped with sliced banana (normal so far) but
 then topped with a poached egg, cinnamon and cayenne pepper (not normal)

The savory egg balances out the sweetness of the meal

But you don't need to stop there; Some saltiness, like peanut 
butter or a slice of cheese, would elevate the flavor even further

And all foodies know it can be exciting when you stumble
 upon your own unique and nontraditional flavor combinations

Question: Do you have any strangely delicious
 food combinations you've discovered that you
 would like to share with Snacking Squirrel readers?

I love sweet and savory combos! I haven't had a PB&J egg sandwich for a while, but they are very good. Okay, basically anything with an egg is good.

I LOVE eating weird combinations. I remember my mom talking about peanut butter, bacon and onion sandwiches as well as peanut butter, banana and mayonnaise. (*cringe*)

On the other hand, I like to prepare tuna with mayonnaise, a tiny drop of honey and a mixture of onion and curry powder in a bowl. And then scoop at it with really thinly sliced apple!

Occasionally, I'll slip a few potato chips into my ham sandwich.

I also like to put sliced goat's fetta on crackers and then top them with sweet chilli sauce. (possibly not weird, but if you get a chance, TRY IT!)

(I also admit to only doing these things when I'm alone and feel that I cannot be judged! haha.)

I totally have heard about the peanut butter, banana, and mayonnaise combo! I actually have tried it! It really isn't too bad... But the thought of having mayo on banana just kept me from finishing it! Grossed me out too much!

I put ketchup on alot of things?! But I can't think of weird combos at the moment...

I definitely do them though!
