You're kidding…right?

sad-boyThis recipe was advertised on my Googlemail page and just the title made me click on it.  I had no idea that people still ate Spam let alone a ‘French Fry and Spam Casserole’ (with a few crushed cornflakes in there for good measure)! 

Actually this inspires me to start collecting the worst sounding recipes I can find.  At some point I may (may, I say) actually try them to see if they really do taste as bad as they sound.  Anyone want to contribute?  Genuine recipes only (together with a note of the source if you can).

Here is the recipe for Spam and French Fry Casserole, as listed at  Try it – I dare you.

  1. Ugh. That sounds awful. And I even live in Spam’s home state! But I still won’t eat it.

    Yes there is so *much* with this that sounds wrong, not least of which is the fact that the fries will turn to mush as they stew in the canned soup.

    ‘Spam’s home state’? I had no idea. I honestly thought that Spam was a WWII favourite that kind of died out in the 1960s/70s as our tastes became more sophisticated and a variety food more available. Well I’ve learned something new today. :).

    Ever heard of the French Canadian “Poutine”?
    Now presented all over North America in most of the fast food joints.
    The original thing came from the lac St-Jean region and was a plate of fried potatoes covered with melted curd cheese drowned in any kind of gravy, mostly left over from previous meal. With time it evolved to using french fries and any kind of cheese but mostly mozzarella and a whole variety of sauces and gravies.
    The last hit was when McDonald started selling the stuff with different flavors, now can get it ” a l’italienne”, curry and other mix.
    I must had that nowhere was it presented as a healty/low cal food.
    Personnaly i find the mixture quite distasteful mainly when presented in a foam plate that melted under the heat.

    Fries with curry sauce dribbled over is a popular favourite down at the chip shop here in the UK. However, throw melted curd cheese into the mix and that definitely sounds like an ingredient too many for me!
    Oh. So the addition of a melted foam plate does nothing for you eh? Now you surprise me! ;D
