We know some people like to get creative in the kitchen, whether inspired by a great idea or faced with limited supplies. But these sandwich mashups might have gone to the extreme. Thanks to mentalfloss.com, we bring you these crazy sandwich mashups.
Cubano Corn Dog
Cuban sandwiches are made with ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard. But in corn dog form, the shredded pork, cubed ham, cheese and pickle relish are held together on a stick, dipped in cornbread batter, and then deep fried. The outcome is a crispy cornbread shell with the tasty ingredients inside.
Funnel Cake Burger
Thanks to their flat and fairly versatile nature, the funnel cake can easily transform into a hamburger bun. Create a savory funnel cake, top it with your favorite burger ingredients, and finish it off with a dust of powdered sugar if you please. Just like the funnel cake itself, this recipe is adaptable and up to your discretion.
Reuben Sandwich Pot Pie
Love the flavors of a Reuben sandwich? Then you’ll love the Reuben Sandwich Pot Pie! This recipe calls for a crust made with rye flour, then packed with corned beef, sauerkraut, a Swiss cheese sauce and topped with a rye bread crumbles and more Swiss cheese.
Cheeseburger Pop Tart
It’s exactly what it sounds like. A sesame seed covered toaster pastry crust is filled with cheese, a burger patty, bacon jam, and voila! A cheeseburger pop tart.
Apple Pie Grilled Cheese
Ever put a slice of cheese atop a slice of apple pie? Well, it gets even better with this apple pie grilled cheese. Slices of sharp cheddar cheese sandwiched between two small double-crust apple pies never sounded so good.
Koopa Troopa Bacon Turtle Burger
These cute, visually appealing burgers are great for kids’ parties or a themed get together. With careful assembly, a hamburger, hot dogs and bacon are transformed into Super Mario Koopa Troopa turtles.
Ramen Hoagie Roll
Why stop at the Ramen burger? The Ramen hoagie roll is where it’s at. Take two packages of noodles, semi-cooked and formed into a hoagie roll, bake it, then top it with your favorites. Create a Philly cheese steak, meatball sub, or whatever your heart desires.
French Fry Hamburger Bun
French fries on the side? Make them into a bun instead! Ditch the traditional bun for the awesome French fry bun. All you need to create this masterpiece is some edible glue and your favorite French fries.
Dog In A Dog
This will put your artistic skills to the test. Wrap a hot dog in dinner roll dough then form it into the shape a dog (weiner dog, if you will). The eyes and nose are made of cheese and black beans. It may take some time to perfect your dog sculpting skills, but don’t give up!
Cheerios Coated Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Breakfast is delicious at all hours, so adding cereal to a grilled cheese seems like common sense. Coating your grilled cheese in cheerios adds new texture and flavor to a classic. This recipe calls for cheese to be the glue that sticks the cheerios crust to the grilled cheese, and we’re not complaining at all.
Double Decker Mac & Cheese Stuffed Bacon Weave Taco
That name is a mouthful, just like the food itself. Now try to follow us here – one bacon weave taco is filled with your standard taco fillings. Another bacon weave taco is filled with macaroni and cheese. Put the bacon weave taco into the macaroni and cheese taco, and you’ve got a serious double decker on your hands.
