Help me think of food combos with the word "and". Like "chips and salsa".
September 16, 2008 9:25 AM   Subscribe

I want a spread for a party where all the food can be described as "_____ and ______", like "chips and salsa", "beans and rice" and "bangers and mash". Help me think of more.

The closer it is to party food (finger food, snacks, side dishes), the better. But go ahead and list anything you can think of: maybe I can think of a way to hack an ampersandy dish into party food.

Oh, also no alcoholic drinks. I can think those up easy.

If you don't mind unhealthy food items, you could deep-fry the aforementioned mac and cheese to make it more party food-ish (easier to eat, etc.).

Pork chops and applesauce. I like apples and oranges, funny. Also bread and water (or bread and butter).

If you're having the party in Charm City, don't forget about fries and gravy. (Though I'm not sure that would work well at a party....)

What, no chicken and a biscuit? No peanut butter and jelly? No strawberries and cream? Come on, people, we can do better than this.

"Apples and cheese" describes a plate of the aforementioned foods in my household, but I don't know that it's a common enough pairing to rate being included in a food idiom party.

Dates and bacon. This is usually called Devils on Horseback but I usually just leave the garlic out of the center and wrap a date in a slice of bacon. Pop the tray in the oven and leave it alone until the bacon is crispy.

Stick a toothpick in each one and you've got finger food!
