I follow Pinterest “cooking” and “food” boards in order to rubberneck just how disturbing my fellow Americans’ dinner plans are getting. I think I found the worst recipe to date today; it would be worse with cream cheese instead of sour cream, and where’s the condensed cream of mushroom soup? But anyway:
What I don’t get about the Taco Bake recipe is that they say to crush “about 3/4 of a bag of Nacho Doritos”. I say, what the hell, use the whole bag! Is this the healthy version or something?
I’m mentioning a recipe from my childhood that I used to call Potato Chip Chicken. It’s chicken that’s been rolled in crushed potato chips instead of flour. You bake the chicken instead of frying it. But I’m not sure this fits the thread criteria because, as I remember, it actually wasn’t bad tasting.
Yeah, I’m not seeing much of a problem here. I mean, I’d probably add some actual flavor, but I’m pondering ways to tweak the general idea(s) already.
I did have what has to be the most Midwestern dip ever on Christmas Eve: equal parts mayonnaise and sour cream with bacon bits and chopped tomatoes, served with white toast wedges for dipping. BLT Dip. It was delicious, yet horrifying at the same time.
Fine - I’ll be the asshole in the thread…
That’s not real food, I wouldn’t eat it or serve it to anyone I care about. It saddens me that this is considered acceptable when it’s just as easy to cook without relying on over processed sodium and preservative laden cans and bags of factory produced crap.
I’m startled, too, but I also kind of want to try it. It’s not what I think of when I think of an enchilada, but it doesn’t look terrible, either. Every once in awhile, I get the hankering for one of those Campbell’s cream-of-whatever type casserole dishes.
Lest you think it’s just Americans who have weird casseroles, I present you with the Flying Jacob, brainchild of a crazy Swede. Apparently, it’s a “classic Swedish dish,” but I can’t confirm or deny. For those who can’t be arsed to click, it’s a casserole of chicken, bananas, peanuts, chili sauce (like Heinz chili sauce), cream, and bacon. I’ve been meaning to try this for years, but haven’t quite gotten around to it.
