Mr. Bad Food

Everybody Loves Ramen!
The worst recipe I have ever seen made is this one. Take a package of the Ramen noodles and cook till done. While the noodle soup is cooking, warm up several brown-and-serve sausages and sauté some onions in butter (need some fat here!). Add the sausages and onion to the soup. Not yucky enough? Then add a small bag of crushed Cheetos cheese snacks. Swirl this around until the cheese snacks get soupy, then eat. I bet this is no good on any diet. --Tonia

Gorge on a Smorge
I'm in college here in North Texas. Well there is this little joint here called Mr. Pig. (Great name, huh?) Well their specialty is the Smorge Sandwich. It’s a chicken-fried steak with white and brown gravy, topped with cheese, bacon, a burger patty and more cheese... on a whole-wheat bun. It’s served with your choice of bread and a dipping sauce (usually all they have is cheese and gravy). Talk about yummmm. But it’s sure to kill one of these college students someday. Oh, and dessert is free… if you finish it! --Kristin

Real-Life Cookie Monster
A number of years ago my husband enjoyed the strangest combination I have ever seen. On a slice of white bread he would place four Oreo cookies. He would then top that with four pieces of pickled herring, another slice of white bread and down it -- and probably another -- with a hearty glass of milk. Oy vey! --Henry's Wife
