What is the worst thing you have eaten that you made out of sheer desperation/laziness/late night "what evers"?

As I type this I am shoveling peanut butter and jam on a spoon into my face. It is abhorrent, but in the most delicious way possible. And, even though I don't make them, nasty Orion Chocopies are pretty bad, too.

Sliced cheese on crackers and melted in the microwave.

When we were kids, we used to make "fudge" by mixing just enough Quick to make a paste, then put it in the fridge until it got solid.

I have microwaved frozen french fries when I'm too impatient to wait the 15 minute it would take them to bake in the oven. Sad, I know, and they're not very good that way. Ketchup helps.

I never did it, but watched an ex boyfriend do it. I don't think I ever got over it.

He took a corn tostada shell, but a slice of bologna and a kraft single on it, microwaved it and chowed down. If it was a flour tortilla, I might have been able to not be so grossed out.

Oh, edited to add that once when I was 10 or so I ate a large spoonful of plain old mayo as an after school snack. Figured it worked for peanut butter, so why not. I miss having the metabolism of a hummingbird.

Not really a "lazy" food per se, but one of the tastiest things ever is a slice of bologna on top of cream cheese on a bagel. Mr. Heinz thought I was completely nuts until I made him try one.

I also love fish sticks - no, not a filet or a patty, those little processed sticks. And I like them EVER BETTER the next day, cold, straight out of the fridge. It's gross, it's weird, I know, but I don't care. I make extra fish sticks just so I can have some for breakfast.

Know what I've noticed about that story? (The tostada one). When I've told it to men, they kind of do the "I guess to you it's nasty" shrug and I can see the thought bubble that says I've just given them an idea.

Sour cream topped with salsa and that topped with shredded cheese and scooped with corn chips. I can eat it by the bowl.

Oh, and a grilled cheese with a fried egg and bacon on it.

Homemade butter....I can just eat it plain off the spoon :no:

Cream cheese. Just plain.

My dad's concoctions:

Peanut butter and butter... peanut butter on one half, butter on the other. Fold it over. Usually both butters were hard and not spread. Meh, it got mixed up well enough in one bite AND you could make the whole thing during a commercial so as to not miss any Dallas.

This guy also would swim laps in the morning followed by Product 19 cereal (cornflakes sprayed with vitamins), sugar and evaporated milk. Again, all this came out even somehow in his mind.

My father would create the nastiest concoctions.
One of his favorites was peanut butter and...mayonnaise.
Or peanut butter with...
Liverwurst.
Thought he was crazy, but I did try it, and it wasn't really bad.

Fortunately it prepared me well for babysitting. This one kid was a piece of work. His parents doctors. He'd take everything in the kitchen and blend it, and it never phased me...thus earning his respect. We got along, the house wasn't set on fire, and I was paid really, really well. :winkgrin:

We once caught my little sister drinking cool melted butter with a straw.

I left my gross recipies in college. There is only so much you can "make" stone cold drunk in a dorm mini microwave. Nacho madness was melted velveeta with salsa poured over it. Eaten with tortilla chips. Nacho lunacy was melted cream cheese with salsa poured over. Also served in tortilla chips. We didn't eat a whole lot better when we "ate out" at Louie's at 2am. Everyone on campus, cooks included, was drunk.

My granmother's special recipie of sliced bananas in a bowl with sour cream and sweet n low sprion top. Bleh!

I frequently enjoy cottage cheese topped with sliced tomatoes and loads of salt and pepper.

Friends make a kick ass cucumber salad with cukes, mayo, and sugar. Soundsgross but until they told me I always thought it was super good.

Actually anything made primarily of anything like sour cream/mayo sounds pretty vile.

These are great - and some of them very normal -- nacho chips and velveeta? I couldn't afford that when I was young. That would have been a special meal! :)

Cucumber salad with mayo? Hello, doesn't everyone make that?

But some of these are really gross!! I am still gagging about the Quik Fudge.

I have never made this but my cousin's young sons would sneak off and make this "special" concoction: bologna sprayed with that fake butter stuff, rolled up and eaten. Agh!!

Family favorites:
banana sice wrapped in bacon, toothpick to hold it together, cook in oven. Pretty good.
Raw onion sliced very thin on a piece of hard tack with mayo.
My choice: raw turnip slice on hardtack with mayo, or plain ol raw turnip eaten like an apple (if your teeth survive it).

My personal odd go-to is a slice of ham smeared with peanut butter topped with a piece of Land O' Lakes american cheese and rolled around a dill pickle. Salty, sweet, fat, protein, crunch all in one.

My go to quick meal is fried bologna pieces in scrambled eggs. And almost anything goes with dill pickles.....must try the bacon and dills in a sandwich, will make a change from bologna or salami and dills. My worst is chicken burgers - they come pre-cooked and I nuke them rather than fry them and sometimes drown them in ketchup.

As a tween, I used to open a can of Campbell's ABC vegetable soup and eat it with a spoon straight out of the can. No need to add water (as it is condensed) or heat it up. The little corn niblets were SO yummy.

My mom always yelled at me...she thought I'd get botulism. Fortunately, I didn't!

I'll admit that I'm a bit leery of odd combinations so there are very few I've tried. However if someone put it in front of me, I'd try it.

My Dad on the other hand... :no:

Just the other night he couldn't find the mayo (because my mom wasn't home and he doesn't cook) so he made tuna fish with plain yogurt instead of mayo. :eek::dead:

When I was a kid, I ate raw hot dogs religiously.

Sometimes in a great while, potato chips topped with cottage cheese.

I've never had Nutella, but the fact that it's chocolate hazelnut spread, putting it on a sandwich just sounds so gross!

Cheese and jam sandwich.
Peanut butter and pickle sandwich.
Ramen noodles with cheese whiz.
Baloney wrapped around pickles. Sometimes kraft singles and baloney wrapped around a pickle.

That's what I used to eat in my riding+going to university days.

My mom's idea of comfort food was a "surprise" casserole. She'd dump in pasta, cream of mushroom soup, tuna or salmon, top with cheese...and voila. Or worse, pasta, chunks of tomato, and topped with velveeta cheese. No surprise i used to hate the nights she made supper.

Now that I'm vegan my junk food has changed a lot. i tend to go towards smushed avocado on toast with a little salt and pepper. Or slather hummus on a wrap and stuffed with any veggies I can find.

WildBlue

My mom gave us peanut butter and tomato sandwiches. Surprisingly, it's not as bad as it sounds.

We also loved her 'pizza': slice of bread topped with ketchup, a sprinkle of oregano, and a slice of cheese warmed under the broiler. Waaaay better than her real pizza, which featured half-cooked dough under mounds of raw, yellow onion and canned tuna.

Squirming around lol
The Polish guy I dated had never had tacos before. We were living in Ireland and I hadn't figured out what their version of sour cream was. The first time we tried something out it was yogurt, which he put on his tacos and loved. Then cottage cheese. Then we got it right, but he also tried cream cheese on the tacos one time before that too. He said it all tasted good, but what would he know about taco fixins anyway?!
I used to drink the little Creamer pots at restaurants when I was little. Several years ago at dinner with my parents we were reminiscing and that came up. So I decided to try out a mini Creamer thing again, straight from the tiny cup. Could. Not. Do it.

Come to think of it, Polish guy also had this dish which wasn't a bum meal by any means, but was a mish mash of loss of things, served cold. Rice I think, celery, cubed chicken, oregano, mayo, and some other things. I wish I could think of that recipe again because I remember liking it. Hmm.

I love slicing up a whole tomato and putting salt on it. Yum.

Whoever said they eat sour cream, salsa and cheese with corn chips--that is one of my go to snacks. Delicious.

Toast with jam and cheese is pretty good too.

Pan fried blood sausage on thinly-sliced bread. My dear dad, God rest his soul, loved it and never told me the English name, so though I realized that bloedworst was blood sausage, I was too young to get it. The Dutch version is not as peppy as, say, Morcilla or Sanguinaccio, but tastier than Kiszka.

When I barbecue hamburgers I usually have all the ingredients except burgers left over. So I have perfected the un-burger which is a cheese onion ketchup and mayonnaise sandwich. I absolutely love it!

My biggest weakness is anything out of the can without bothering to heat it. Scary when microwaving is too much trouble. My favorite is a can of corn and a spoon. But I will also do this with soups.

Nothing beats cheese nachos though. Shredded cheese because I don't do the Velveeta thing. BTW autocorrect made Velveeta into Belavida. Must work on my enunciation!

Butter, cheese, and bacon sandwiches.

Toast the bread and then slather it with butter. Like so much that it won't all melt. Then add slices of sharp cheddar cheese and strips of bacon. Yum.

Oreo soup. A bunch of Oreos smashed up in a coffee cup. Add milk and a spoon. Makes a lovely chocolatey mush.

My grossest confession is that reading this made me so hungry that I went down and made myself a bagel and cream cheese.

My "bum" foods are usually obscene quantities of items:
- several TB of peanut butter
- Above peanut butter mixed with jelly, nutella, or honey
- a huge chunk of extra sharp cheddar cheese
- half a jar of sweet pickles

I also have a weird thing about cooking pasta. It always seems to take too long when I am feeling lazy. So almost weekly I will sauté fresh veggies, cook tofu or morning star patties, and then put it on top of ramen. Somehow it is so much more rewarding and delicious because I "put in less effort".....dumb I know.

Mmm, yes! Potato chips on sandwiches with butter is amazingly delicious!

I thought of a few others...
Ramen noodles with slices of cheese mixed in and melted.
Chips dipped in sour cream is pretty good. Especially cheetos.
I used to love mixing butter with sugar and just eating it with a spoon.
I also used to eat raw potato slices with salt.

Y'all ready for this? Dad's "Goulash" that he created in college. It's a meal, it's actually much better than it sounds, and it's wonderful comfort food.

Slice potatoes and fry in a skillet. When they are just about done, add a layer of cooked ground meat (hamburger, turkey, etc).
Next, a layer of canned baked beans, then a layer of condensed cream of mushroom soup. Top with cheese and cook until the cheese is melted. I like it with a bit of ketchup.

My brothers favorite was uncooked spaghetti noodles.... Sometimes he would cook them and eat them with butter and salt and if he was really fancy he would sprinkle with Parmesan cheese (the kind in the can) .

And when I was young I would eat Vienna sausages (sp) straight from the can...I think I would gag if I had to eat them now.

Um, I make this as a treat when I am tired of pan seared fish/chicken and the latest assortment of roast vegetables, because I think it is delicious and decadent and has the side benefit of being comparatively hugely unhealthy, so I don't really consider it "bum" food, but in the sense that everyone else considers it gross:

pasta, topped with baked beans, an egg over easy, and ketchup.
If you have the pasta pre-ready and fry it in the pan with the egg and beans so it gets a little crunchy, .....mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Also if you would like to commit the all the sins that the latest healthy eating literature would considerthe "most horrible", make up some Stoffers stuffing from the box, add processed and sodium laden gravy from a packet, and top with suger-filled processed jellied cranberry sauce from a can.
Enjoy.

Thought of another one. Bread topped with thick, brown gravy. The bread gets kind of soggy and mushy and yum.

As ignorant little kids: Spaghetti (cooked) and mayo, like a sauce. Good enough for us.

Just remembered another childhood snack. Not really gross, but we often ate it after school. White bread, mayonaise, iceberg lettuce sprinkled with garlic salt and onion powder.

Reading the last few entries reminded me of a favourite, not gross, childhood summer snack - lettuce sandwich which consisted of white bread (usually home made) and spread thickly with Sandwich Spread and then piled high with fresh leaf lettuce. If there was no sandwich spread, Miracle Whip and bread and butter pickles worked as well.

My brother also ate raw spaghetti and macaroni and that IS gross.

When I was a teenager, one of my favorite sandwiches was tuna (tuna, mayo, onion powder, relish) with marshmallow creme and Doritos. I called it a meal in one. It was super tasty.

This thread is making me so hungry, I just took out a jar of nutella and am eating it with a spoon. What's so bad about 200 calories per spoonful?

Frosting from a can on graham crackers.

Peanut butter & bacon sandwich. No fake BacoBits, if at all possible. White bread, of course, but not Wonder.

From my poor student days: hot buttered rice or hot rice with ranch dressing.
A splurge was a 39c Hot-N-Now burger with green olives on it.

My gross meal is french fries, coated in buffalo wing sauce and dipped in bleu cheese dressing.

I also like garbage plates. For breakfast this morning I had 2 eggs scrambled with ham, green peppers, onions, hash browns, tomatoes, mushrooms, and banana peppers. Topped with cheese and finished with hot sauce. YUM.

And then there is the prairie dog platter: French Fries topped with mustard and onions, nacho cheese, texas hot sauce and chopped up hot dogs. So incredibly disgusting. But so good. I've eaten it once or twice each time thinking with every bite it was so gross but I couldn't stop shoveling it in. Now that I've sort of purged my system from processed foods, I don't think I could do it today. Just the thought of it makes me go :dead:

All of that sounds delicious in a gross, indulgent sort of way.

I love the Jack-in-the Box fast food "drive thru" fried tacos. Mystery meat (paste) and all.

Thankfully there is not a Jack-in-the-Box near me. It is a special treat on road trips. 2 for .99 cents. You know, they must be good for you! :yes:

I think if you melt cheese over it, it counts as a legit meal. For example, smoked almonds with cheese melted over them. Totes legit, do don't judge me!

The tragedy strikes when you don't have any substrate to melt the cheese on, and end up in front of the fridge shovelling in pre-shredded cheese by the handful.

My favorites:

- Butter and peanut butter on bread, toasted or not
- Peanut butter and bacon on toast
- Buttered Triscuits with a glass of wine in front of trashy TV
- Salsa on cottage cheese (when I'm hungry, lazy, and want something not-junk-food)
- Plain dry Cheerios eaten out of a glass or mug
- PB & marmalade sandwich on buttered bread or toast (Marmalade MUST be the good tart English kind though, like Dundee)
- Salsa and butter (or sour cream if I have it) on baked potatoes. Or on any potato product, really :)

OK time for breakfast, I'm starving!

I didn't get desperate for bum meals until I was in grad school. Suddenly cold canned green beans became my jam. Just pop off the top and chow down!

Also, I had some canned chicken that followed me through my undergrad. I just never was desperate enough to eat it. That too changed in grad school, so I'd mix it with canned corn and green beans into a couple of containers and have food to eat on for the next couple of days. The bad part is I would eat that cold too.

Nuke frozen burritos (I use Aldi brand), followed by 1 box of Michelina's Santa Fe Rice & Beans dinner.
Smash up/cut up burritos, add Santa Fe Rice & Beans. Add cheese and taco sauce. Blend well. Stuff face. Cheap, fast, filling comfort food.

I'm sure the sodium content is over the moon, but this is not my everyday meal and sodium isn't really a concern for me given my typical workout sweat output!

I routinely eat peanut butter out of the jar. If I keep chocolate chips in the house, I'll put them in, too...

When I was a kid, my favorite comfort food was a sandwich made with wheat bread, mayo on one side, crunchy peanut butter on the other and a slice of beef bologne in the middle. Mmmmmm

In a recent mood of desperation I chowed down on tzatziki dip and corn tortillas... Definitely not a Greek/Mexican fusion I would recommend to anyone but I was starving and we were out of pita bread!

Cheese In A Bathtub:

Take one slice white bread, slather mayo on one side. Add 1 piece Oscar Mayer bologna. Place a slice or 2 of cheddar cheese in the center of the bologna.

Broil in toaster oven until cheese is melted and bologna is curled up, forming a little "cup" around the pool of melted cheese.

This was one of my favorite snacks as a kid, after spending the entire day at the pool.

I love slicing up a whole tomato and putting salt on it. Yum.

Whoever said they eat sour cream, salsa and cheese with corn chips--that is one of my go to snacks. Delicious.


One of my trainers will eat tomatoes whole just like an apple. That grosses me out but I'm totally with you on the other. It's lazy man's seven layer dip! Awesome!

When I was a kid we got all of our tomatoes fresh from my grandfather's garden every summer. I'd eat those like apples; they were SO good. More than once I ate so many I gave myself mouth ulcers.

-Potato chips and cottage cheese
-Saltines with butter
-warm pasta with just butter or butter and parm. cheese
-My poor-girl "trail mix": uncooked oatmeal, raisins, and mini chocolate chips

I also like "kippered snacks"- canned smoked herring on white bread or spread on saltines. If I didn't eat it when I was growing up with my dad, there is no way I would touch it. It looks gross and smells gross, but boy does the yummy taste bring back comforting memories of childhood!

Hubby likes "bean sandwiches" - cold baked beans poured between 2 slices of bread.

Yesterday, I wasn't feeling well (migraine). So I was moping on my couch watching cartoons on Cartoon Network eating pickle rounds straight out of the jar. I tossed in a slice of kraft cheese just for some variety, but happily sat there eating pickle slices for a good half hour before I realized how gross I was being.

So I went out and bought mint ice cream and hot fudge topping and ate that instead.

I'll eat creamed herring straight out of the jar. Totally grosses my husband out. But fair's fair; I can't stand to watch him eat cold black beans smothered in Miracle Whip.

Not a fan of creamed herring but will eat plain pickled herring right from the jar.

Another 'weird' thing I like is cucumbers and sour cream (just enough vinegar to thin it down a bit), boiled potatoes and smoked sausage, all gooped together in one lovely creamy, crunchy tangy and salty bite.

MAN some of you guys have STRONG stomachs... Pretty sure I got queasy just reading some of these!!!
I will throw ANY type of vegetables RAW in my salad... cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, peppers, etc... don't care- they all go in. Top that off with 2 eggs sunny side up and there is a meal. Will also ad beans to the mix (black, chickpeas, etc.)
Most people find it highly strange that I add that many things in there.
Weakness are frozen berries... or frozen grapes! Candy to me...
Yep- I'm boring.. I know!! ;)

This reminds me of a birthday request when I was about 9 years old. I wanted a can of sardines, mustard, and saltine crackers. Yum! And yea, I got it too, lol.

I will still occasionally indulge in a fishy feast fest once or twice a year. Makes my husband turn green but ohhh...I love the fishy, salty, oily, taste!
