Kids strange taste buds

My kids have wanted the strangest mixtures of topping on toast. Like peanut buttter, vegemite, jam and honey all spread together on one slice. Has anyone else had strange requests from their kids?

Captain Slog says: Hi Chrissy,
I couldn't help but notice this one of yours. Have your kids been looking at some of these recipes in here? If so, they may have discovered my. . . Shit on Toast Recipe. (Sorry about that!!)
IF you find the recipe in here, somewhere, it has the whole story about how I came to think of it, but I won't go into it here. To clarify, My version uses MARMITE and Crunchy Peanut Butter, henc the term . . . On Toast. I just LOVE Vegemite, which is why I chose MARMITE as the major ingredient.
It sounds gross, but its a "Fun" thing for kids to play around with. A bit cheeky, though. Sorry about that!
What am I saying? It probably IMPROVES the taste of Marmite! Reply

Miss Prim says: I have never heard of all the spreads together on one slice, sounds yukky. However, as a child I had peanut butter and honey, vegemite alone, jam and peanut butter. I would set a limit to two toppings. Introduce cinnamon and apple and other tasty toppings. Chopped up ham and cheese under the griller is an old favourite and is filling. Reply

He used to call it a Kamakazee sanger.

jenisweet says: I definitely like toast with vegemite and cheese but not the tomato sauce. But my grandchild and myself both like toast with cheese and raspberry jam. I also like toast with banana pineapple cheese and jam. Top that!!! Reply

mummy2jj says: i think that a lot of people have preconceived ideas about what foods should go with what and maybe you should try it before you knock it! my mother in law is very ewww against eating any leftovers for breakfast from the night before because in her mind you are supposed to have cereal or toast. but for us being bakers we have been up all night working so coming home and eating leftovers at breakfast time is about normal!

I think its all a part of allowing their imaginations loose. Who says they're wrong & we're right anyway. Isn't it all a matter of taste ;-) Reply

CAT17 says: Hi bydesign! I agree with you, it is all about personal tastes and in fact if a child asks for a particular "mixture" on their toast, sandwich etc, let them have it. Children's taste buds are immature and what we think is "yuck"" they just love. I think it is much better to go along with the child's choice than make an issue out of it which can lead to other "eating problems" My eldest daughter took cheese and sweet mustard pickles sandwiches to school every day for years and even though I was worried at first that she would be bored, I gave up and let her have it every day. Even when she was old enough to make her own sandwich she still had the same topping. Jam and tasty cheese was one of my favourites when I was a child and I must admit I am still partial to it!!

says: My favourite toppings on toast when I was a child and even still now is vegimite, honey and cheese. My daughter's is peanut butter, honey and banana so maybe it runs in the family. My father has anything thats left over and needs using up, I've seen him eating jam, kiwi fruit and pasta on toast in the morning but I think that's going a bit too far. Reply

My 4 year olds favorite on toast is peanut butter with nutella and he loves to dip cheese in sauce or mayonaise. Reply

I am a 61 year old Yank and I just love vegemite, peanut butter, sliced green olives and cheddar cheese sandwitch. Also I love vegemite that much I use it as a potato chip dip by mixing it with sour cream and lots of it I may add. Yummy. Reply

My other son loves cheese and jam sandwiches.... I think some of us have savoury taste buds, some sweet and some are just darn right muddled!! LOL x

We were also embarrassed when we visited an elderly lady in a retirement village who had managed to cook us a delicious hot lunch. including dessert. Miss 2 year spotted bananas refused to eat what was cooked and politely asked for banana on bread - it was her latest craze. Luckily the lady was understanding, laughed and gladly obliged. She laughed when she told her friends about it. We didn't think it was funny though. Reply
