Default Weird, Cross-Culture Recipes

Do you have a recipe that blends Mexican with Chinese foods? How about a, "German Sushi" recipe, or an Italian-Indonesian dish? If so, please share!

Most cultures have some kind of dumpling recipes, I wonder if you could do a Chinese dumpling stuffed with Mexican barbecue pork?

Enchilada bites. These use chicken enchilada filling in wonton wrappers.

I love my vegan frankfurter (Field Roast) pan roasted with oyster sauce.

Back when ground turkey came out and it was cheap! I used a lot of it in a lot of different ways. One of my favorites that didn't necessarily go over well with others was I'd make rather highly spiced meatballs served with a yellow curry sauce. Usually would have some raisins or nuts or things like that along with it, served over rice.

My father's side of the family is Czech and made similar pierogi to this

So sometimes I'd do the pierogi stuffed with the turkey mixture and served with additional sauce.

Nowadays I have Sriracha and coconut milk as pantry items, think I'd look at it with Thai flavors and a peanut sauce!

Pretty much all cultures had some sort of dumpling, you can take whatever inside you want and wrap it in whatever outside and chances are you'll like it. LOL, especially if you can deep fry it.

Many years ago, I came across a recipe for Istrian Lasagna. Istria is a peninsula caught between Italy and the Former Yugoslavia. It used blanched cabbage leaves in place of lasagna noodles, but pretty much the same ingredients otherwise. Now many recipes can be found as 'deconstructed cabbage rolls' or 'low carb' lasagna. Still a favourite especially for keto diets.

A local restaurant serves 'Irish quesadillas'. I've never tried one - mashed potatoes on a bread product doesn't appeal to me.

A local cafe where my husband goes for his car club meetings makes Reuben Eggrolls. They are very popular there.
