Croissant + Doughnut
The Cronut, from NYC-based pastry chef Dominique Ansel, is a model mash-up: ring-shaped croissant dough that's fried, filled and glazed like a doughnut.
Ramen Noodles + Cheeseburger
The recipe for the Asian-inspired burgers on crisp-fried noodle buns at Ramen Co. in NYC may be top secret, but our version, with melty American cheese, is equally habit-forming.
Make it a veggie burger by grilling a portobello mushroom cap and sprinkling the ramen's flavor packet on top.
Chicken Parm + Pizza
This masterful mash-up from Quality Italian in NYC combines two red-sauce favorites in one: cheesy pizza toppings on a breaded-chicken crust!
The secret to that perfectly round pie: swapping ground poultry for chicken parm's usual boneless breast.
Brownies + Cookies
The iconic chocolate chip cookie is going incognito -- as a brownie! It's the brainchild of Baked, a pastry shop in Brooklyn, which plants the dough in a chewy, rich brownie shell. Crazy good!
Swap peanut butter chips for the chocolate to make a PB-cup Brookster.
Bonus Recipe: French Onion Soup Dumplings
What do you get when you combine French Onion Soup with traditional Chinese soup dumplings? Pure deliciousness.
