Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
Grilled cheese is one of the best comfort foods on a cold, blustery day, and while it’s delectable all on its own, there’s nothing better than when you pair it with tomato soup. The cheese in the sandwich adds a creamy flavor to the mix that is perfectly contradicted by the acidity of the tomato. Some people may choose to drink their soup on the side, but the true game changer is when you dunk your sandwich right into the soup.
Mac and Cheese
You may be thinking that mac and cheese isn’t a food pairing, but you would be wrong. This delicious dish would be nothing without the beautiful combination of pasta and cheese. While the pasta element of the meal generally remains the same, you can mix and match with different flavors depending on the cheese that you use. If you’re feeling really fancy, you can even add in different elements such as bacon, ham, onions, and more. No matter what recipe you use, there’s no question that a bowl of mac and cheese can solve all your problems.
Chicken and Waffles
This is a fairly new food pairing, and after giving it a try, many people wonder why it took so long to make the connection. You wouldn’t think that this combination could work, after all, you’re trying to combine a breakfast food with something you would usually eat for lunch or dinner. However, the crispy, savory flavors of the chicken work with the sweetness of the waffle and syrup in a way that is almost magical. While you may be skeptical, after the first bite, your life will never be the same.
Cheese and Crackers
Even the simplest of food pairings can be absolutely scrumptious. Take cheese and crackers, for example. All you have to do is slice up some of your favorite cheese and place it on top of a cracker. Not only is this food pairing simple, it is also quite enjoyable. You can also mix and match with your favourite cheeses and crackers!
Chips and Salsa
Tortilla chips are plain on their own, but when you dip them in salsa it’s a different story. If you’re having a gathering of your friends and family, chips and salsa is a staple. It’s the perfect snack for when you’re watching TV or in a deep conversation. The saltiness of the chip creates the perfect foundation for the freshness of the salsa, making this combo an instant classic.
Hamburgers and Fries
There’s a reason that pretty much every restaurant offers fries as a side to their burgers. Unlike other pairings, fries and hamburgers both contain a savory flavor. However, the combination of toppings on the burger and the acidity of the ketchup, make for a perfect match.
At Soda Jerks, we give you the freedom to make your own delicious food pairings by offering a variety of toppings for our famous gourmet burgers. Check out our burgers online, or stop by Soda Jerks to satisfy your cravings today!
