tradition foods that others think are odd? With me (and now my kids) its sugar biscuits. Dh won't touch them with a 10' pole...have to amke him egg biscuits when we have this. Growing up we spent every weekend at my grandparents until my grandfather died. One of the "special" things we got (as in my mother did not make) was buttered biscuits with sugar in them. I still to this day love a sugar biscuit! Of course there were other things too...when my grandfather hunted rabbit or squirrel the brains and the kidneys were always fought over by us kids. Now I haven't passed that on to my kids.... livermush though is another story. Dh will barely sit at the table with us when we eat livermush...never mind eat it himself! He doesn't care much for cornbread either though........silly man! And a piece of real hoop cheese and biscuits can be a meal for me. Ok now I have to go find real hoop cheese and make some cornbread!

I fry up chicken livers in onions, let it cool then chop it in the food processor add mayo and chopped olives and spread it on crackers. I also love toast with ketchup. Oh and I refuse to eat egg salad that doesnt have olives in it.

I am from the south and I married a Yankee. He will not touch neckbones, collards, souse, liver mush, chittlings, or pig's feet. He also refuses bulk sausage (Banner), tripe, and herring roe. He just doesn't know what he is missing.
I have to stock up on these when we make our yearly trips back to NC.

When I eat chili, I rarely use a spoon. Well, except for using one to stack it on top of a saltine cracker.

So, when we're at someone elses house and they serve chili, my wife always leans over to me and whispers, "If you eat the chili like you eat it at home, I will kill you."

My family and I all like the same foods, except for anchovies. I love anchovies but the rest of my family HATES them. Nothing really strange here, but there are some regional foods, having grown up in New England. I was raised eating peanut butter and bacon sandwiches, peanut butter and sugar sandwiches, and mayo and banana sandwiches. I was also raised eating "american chop suey".

My husband, being from Utah, has taught me the delights of Navajo tacos and "scones" (indian fry-bread).

We have the ole timey hoop cheese (real) for breakfast every Christmas morning. Our son would get in his car and drive the 130 miles back home without breakfast if there was no softened hoop cheese to spread on his hot biscuits.

Our favorite "odd" dish is sauerbraten which is basically a chunk of beef soaked in seasoned vinegar and wine for a few days before cooking. I grew up with it, and DH (much to my surprise) developed quite a fondness for it from the time he tried my Mom's cooking.

I love bread dumplings (cubes of bread bound together with egg and a bit of salt & pepper, then boiled) but DH can't stand them.

Sausage or hamburger gravy on fried potatoes, suet pudding (my family is English), homemade chicken and dumplings or chicken and homemade noodles, roasted heart (elk, venison or beef), probably more, but their not coming to mind right now.
