Roach Muffin

Ingredients: half a cup of butter a quarter of a cup of sugar 1 egg 1 and a half cups of old mashed bananas 1 and three quarters cups of self-raising flour half a teaspoon of nutmeg a quarter of a tea-spoon of baking soda a handful of cockroaches Method: pre-heat the oven and grease your muffin pans. Blend the butter and sugar, together, and then mix in the egg and banana. Combine the dry ingredients and then mix them into the wet ingredients. Place the mixture into the muffin tins and add a cockroach into each muffin. Push it in well then cook for about 20-25 minutes.

Potato Chip Sandwiches

These are awesome! Although this sounds disgusting, they are loved by most all who dare to try. We have perfected several variations of these:

1st you need the smooth cut potato-chips, not the rippled kind (PHOOEY!) I like to lay a slice of American cheese on the 1st slice of bread before crushing my chips. The reason is two-fold: cheese adds flavor and also protects bread from getting cut from the potato-chips. I prefer to add a goodly amount of chips and layers of mustard and onions and chips before closing it up with another slice of cheese and bread.

Mustard and onion are my favorite things to put inside with the chips (some folks prefer catsup or even barbecue sauce). Of course the onion is optional as well as the cheese. We have also spread a layer of peanut butter on the bread before smashing up the potato chips onto it.

We have even added hot peppers at times (there is no wrong way) suite to your personal taste. Enjoy!


Cereal Lover

I am a cereal lover. I love mixing different types together. My favorite combo includes Cocoa Puffs, Golden Grahms, Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Honey Bunches of Oats w/ Almonds. Crumble them all up together really fine, add a small amount of milk to coat only. Make a bit mushy and eat. Especially good topped with crumbled cinnamon Teddy Grahms. Any favorite types of cereal will do.

Also, my mother always has liked raw pie crust. Salt plus butter flavored shortening is a good combo.

Oatmeal combined with vanilla, butter and maple syrup and salt to taste (I like it really salty.)

Also, add crumbled pretzels to the batter of your favorite brownie recipe. Leave them a bit undercooked and top with a melted candy bar, spread and sprinkle with more pretzels. Top with melted vanilla ice cream (still cold, but soupy). Yum!

Ranch Dressing

I used to live on pretzels and butter growing up, that and ham and mayo sandwiches. Now I am addicted to ranch dressing. I eat it with almost everything: French fries, pretzels, nacho cheese Dorritos.... I think I am going to have a snack now. Yum Yum.

Hungry in Hungary

When we got hungry in Hungary (the neighbor's kids and I), we would take white bread and cover it with mustard and brown sugar. Sure tasted good when we were hungry.

Vietnamese Sandwich

These are a hold-over from the French occupation of Vietnam. They're GREAT, and come in some different styles. But your basic Vietnamese Sandwich is:

A 12 inch crusty french bread halved, then slathered with mayonaisse and pate, then filled with cilantro, hot pepper slices, marinated julienned carrots & daikon radish, and unidentifiable gray meat slices that taste dangerously liverish. For some bizarre reason, all these ingredients mingle to become the best damn sandwich in the world.


Putting on the Ritz

Try this! It's good, although not as weird as some of the recipes I've seen.

Peanut butter and horseradish sauce on Ritz crackers.


Sliced Wieners, Green Chiles & Eggs

I agree...a mayo and peanut butter sandwich is good, but guess what makes it great. Try adding one slice of American cheese, lettuce and sliced dill pickle. Can't beat that. YUMMY.

However, I do not know how it is possible for my brother-in-law to consume his microwave creation of sliced wieners, green chiles and eggs.

Just Plain

My friend eats ketchup with potato chips. My other friend and I thought she was weird until we tried it. Since we tried it, we haven't eaten chips plain! You really have to try it. Also, we eat scrambled eggs with ketchup. When I was little, I used to put salad dressing (French) on bread, and eat it. One of my dad's friends used to eat plain butter for a snack. That was her favorite food. Just plain butter, nothing else! Yicky!!

The Best Oatmeal

I must admit, oatmeal is not one of my favorite foods, though I like it well enough. However, MY oatmeal must be thick, creamy--and flavored. I would never, will never eat it any other way. What you do is, make normal oatmeal, though use about 1/4 cup less milk (for one person). When it's done, add a tiny amount of "mixing" milk, a teensy bit of butter, some sugar, and the key ingredient: 2 or 3 BIG spoonfulls of peanut butter (Jif works best). Mix with your spoon, but not too much--you want to leave a few peanut butter "clumps." This is the best oatmeal, there's none better! Try it!! :)

Pork-n-Beans & Cottage Cheese

Since I didn't like cottage cheese or pork-n-beans as a kid I started combining the two. My husband and kids also enjoy this "recipe". We've been doing this for so long it doesn't seem strange at all until someone that doesn't know us sees us putting pork-n-beans on top of cottage cheese. Did I mention the beans have to be refrigerated before you put them on top of the cottage cheese?

Rot-gut Coffee & Student Sandwiches

Back in the 50s when I was a starving college student (and weren' t we all?), a quarter would buy a greasy hamburger or a paperback book. We opted for the latter, so made our own sandwiches of chunky peanut butter and sliced dill pickle. That way we had a dime for a cup of rot-gut coffee with a free refill. I can't drink coffee anymore because of a heart condition, but once in awhile, I'll make such a sandwich and smile.

Gooey Yum!

Maybe not so weird, but sooooo tasty!

This is a special treat my Mom would make from left over noodles. She would fry the noodles in butter, till some of the edges were crispy, add sugar and cottage cheese till gooey. Yum! We never liked cottage cheese as kids, but this was one way to get us to eat it. She also would take left over rice, fry in butter, with sliced apples, cinnamon and sugar - best part was the crispy part from the bottom of the pan.


Milk Toast

2 pieces of toast (buttered)
Hot milk

Sprinkle toast with sugar (how much depends on how sweet you want it). Pour very hot milk on buttered and sugared toast.

This was soooo good when I was little and still is (especially late at night)!!

Beef Sushi

At least my wife and all my friends think this is gross:

When I am marinating either London broil or sirloin steak, I like to slice off little bits of it, (raw, of course) and dip in Dale's sauce or Allegro hot & spicy marinade. I love it! Way better than real sushi anytime.

please sign me-
Buzzard Breath

NOTE: It's not safe to eat raw beef because of dangerous E. coli bacteria. We don't recommend you try this at home.

Choc & Nut Hummus

Put Hummus on two slices of bread and place a couple of choc and nut bars in the middle. Slap 'um together and enjoy (or be sick, either way).


Mushed In

My all-time favorite sandwich is peanut butter (either creamy or chunky) and about 5 or 6 whole green olives (with pimentos, of course) mushed in!


Feeling Normal

Wow reading those recipes makes me feel normal. It's wonderful to see that I'm not the only person who buys fries at Wendy's and dips them in the chocolate shake!

My favorite sandwich is peanut butter smothered in layers of dill pickles!! I also like eating brownies and ice cream with green olives. Mmm there's nothing like it.

Jessica Mullins


- Boil up tripe for a half hour.
- Skim off the top and dump the water.
- Cover with water and boil a few hours until very soft.
- The acid taste will be gone.
- Keep water over the tripe at all times. Don't let it boil down.
- The last half hour, toast some California or New Mexico chili and put in the tripe.
- Add a large can of hominy.
- Boil up until the tripe and hominy absorb some of the chili.
- Server with lemon, lime, cilantro (fresh coriander leaves), onion, red pepper flakes, jalapeno, etc.


Grilled Gut

- Thoroughly clean all parts.
- Freshly killed, curly part of the sheep intestine.
- Piece of sheep fat.
- Sheep tripe.
- Place the piece of fat on the tripe.
- Wrap tightly with a bit of intestine.
- Place on a hot grill and toast till done.


High School

When I was in high school, I ate the combination of vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, and green olives (with pimento) sprinkled on top almost every day. Delicious!

Worm Salsa

I used to love cooking when I was a kid, my favourite dish being salsa. My mother used to leave me in the kitchen to make it. I went to a friend's house and had pasta with my salsa creation. It was great. So I went home and made up some salsa, but I thought it was worms because I didn't ask what the stuff was... Well, I seem to have not lost the taste. I'm now 19, and I adore the taste of worms and salsa...mmmmm.

Midwest Leftovers

My mom, from the midwest (of course), makes trememdous baked beans. I enjoy informing guests that the leftovers will later be poured over toasted white bread with peanutbutter.

Cottage Cheese Mess

OK, I don't feel so wierd anymore. I mean, really. And my family thinks this is gross!

Take a scoop of cottage cheese (large curd is my favorite kind) and sprinkle shredded cheese (cheddar makes a nice contrast) on top. Add bacon bits to taste, and the fake kind like Baco-s seems to work best, then smother the whole thing in your favorite salad dressing, though oil based ones don't work so well. Let it sit for a minute to get the flavors to blend, like as long as it takes to get from the salad bar to your table is good, then mix and eat! Good groceries!


M-PB-HD Sandwich

Okay, its been one of my favorites for a very very long time. Everybody always thought it was disgusting, but it realy isn't (unlike some of the fake-o bug recipies here). I was surprised to see a similar recipe here, but I'll give my twist on it, along with instructions on how to make it mmm-mmm good.

M-PB-HD Sandwich:

- 1 jar of Mayonaise (not sandwich spread or fat-free crap, preferably Hell-man's)
- 1 jar of NATURAL smooth peanut butter (get the kind that separates, stay away from sugared PB)
- 1 pack of chicken hotdogs (don't get the beef or mixed variety, get the bug chicken hotties)
- 1 loaf of white bread (don't go cheap, get some of the firmer stuff)

Simply spread mayo on one slice of bread, well mixed PB on the other, and lay cooked hot dogs (sliced lengthwise) inside. This is a recipe you can easily make and try, so do it! I have only convinced one other person to try it, and they fell in love also!

PC & Mayo Sandwiches

These are my favorite kind of snadwiches: peanut butter, celery, and mayonnaise. I thought it sounded repulsive until my dad made one for me, and I tried it. They're actually delicious. Sometimes I put mustard on, too, but that's not as good. It sounds like an odd combination, but not so. To tell the truth, I don't even like peanut butter or mayo, except on this delicious sandwich. It is truly unique and yummy. Try it, everyone!

However, don't talk about it near any squeamish people. One day, my mom was sick, and she asked what I was making for lunch. I told her, and she went into the bathroom and, er...tossed her cookies. I don't understand why??? It's my favorite sandwich! Actually, I don't even like sandwiches in general, but I make an exception here. Whoever first invented it probably did it as a joke, but I thank them with all my heart.

Thanks...for my favorite sandwich!


Kitty Litter Cake

Here's a recipe for kitty litter cake.

Bake cake of your choice in square pan (must be square because that's what kitty litter pans look like). Get white icing and color with a little blue and red food coloring, try to get it looking gray. Mix in coconut to get texture which resembles kitty litter. Roll some tootsie rolls in the coconut/icing mixture, leave some covered and some exposed.


Auntie's Tomato Soup

When I was a child my aunt would make my other aunt and myself cream of tomato soup and place a blob of peanut butter in it. Sometimes I would also add crackers to it as well. Yum!! I prefer Campbells tomato soup made with milk and use Jiff peanut butter, (creamy), but any brand of tomato soup and peanut butter will do.

When friends see me do this and say to me, "that's gross", I make them try it. I have turned a lot of people into believers. Try it. You will be pleasently surprised!


Icky Foo'

I don't understand what is so disgusting about mashed pear and tomato ketchup sandwiches!! (I have them at school every day now.)

Steven Polak

Turpentine Shake

I have found a fantastic thirst quencher beverage that I enjoy regularly. All my friends claim it smells and tastes like turpentine. Oh well, to each their own I guess. It's a simple: chocolate milkshake (frappe) made with pistashio ice cream (with whole green nuts). Try it, you'll like it.

Sardines & Pickles

My boyfriend likes to eat something that I think to be very unusual. He likes to eat sardines and pickles. He says that it tastes very good though.

I have taught him something that he just loves to eat, this is something that I learned from an ex a few years ago. Take any standard grilled cheese, cheddar cheese is best, and dip it in Karo syrup. I know this is a little different but the two compliment one another.

Chassity Cook

Marshmallow Fluff

My sister, my kids, and I have a peanut butter, (marshmallow) fluff, and banana sandwich once a week.

Take 2 pcs. white bread spread one thickly with peanut butter, one thickly with fluff. Slice some banana put it in the middle. YUMMY!

Sizzler Special

I just had to share some really foul creations I've come across.

When I was 10 or so I had a friend who would make bologna, mayo, and bannana sandwiches. YUCK!

I also have another story, and while it might not quite be a recipe, it is gross.

Me and my two neices, when we were all around 6-12 years old, went to Sizzlers with our parents (and brothers). We got bored, and took an ice cream bowl and mixed EVERYTHING IN IT (ice cream, sprinkles, hot sauce, salad dressing, lots of sugar, salt, pepper, some ketchup, mustard, salad bits, spaghetti sauce, and other random bits of food on plates). My bother made us EAT IT ALL! It was soooo disgusting, but he made us eat it all.


Coke & Bologna

I thought this was the grossest thing, until I found your page... All you need is a about 2-3 pounds of bologna (not sliced), 1 can of classic Coke and pineapple slices. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes, then pour the Coke over the bologna and top with pineapple slices.


1/2 lb Ground pork
1 c Lard
1 c Sugar
1 c Brown sugar
2 Eggs -- well beaten
3 c Flour
2 ts Soda
1/2 ts Cinnamon
1/2 c Peanut butter
1/2 c Nuts
1/2 c Orange rind -- shredded

Brown then drain ground pork; drain. Cream lard, white sugar, brown sugar and eggs. Add flour, soda, cinnamon. Blend in peanut butter, orange rind, and nuts. Stir in ground pork. Shape into small balls on greased cookie sheet. Press down with fork dipped in sugar. Bake at 350 for 10 min. Refrigerate. Yields 5 dozen.

Jam Daddy

My Dads enjoys strawberry jam, cheese and tomato sandwiches. He says they taste great but only if you put the jam and tomato on opposit sides of the cheese. I refuse to make this for him!


Sugar Cheese

What I do is I take a chunk of marble cheese (any kind works, but I like mable cheese the most) get a little bowl of white sugar and I dip the cheese in the sugar and eat it. It tastes great, but all of my family thinks I'm nuts and won't try it.

From Rebecca

Crocodile Schnitzels

I see that you've started putting up real recipes. I've been collecting horrible recipes online for over a year. Just say the word, and I'll be glad to share some with you. I'm not looking for you to use my name. Enjoy them, post them, don't post them, whatever!

Here's the one that started the ball rolling --


250 gm Crocodile Fillets sliced thinly
1/2 cup Minced Walnuts
1 cup Breadcrumbs
1 cup Flour
1 cup Milk
1 Egg

Dust with flour. Dip in egg wash (one egg beaten with 1 cup milk). Blend walnuts and breadcrumbs and coat crocodile with this mixture. Fry in preheated mixture of oil and butter. Serve with Tropical Fruit Sauce.


1 large Mango diced
1 Pawpaw -- diced
3 tbsps Brown Sugar
3 tbsps Butter
3 tbsps chopped Walnuts
15 ml Rum, Brandy or Whiskey (optional)
1 cup Water

Melt butter in pan and saute walnuts. Add sugar and stir for 2 minutes. Add mango and pawpaw and mash. Add water and stiroccasionally until mixture boils. Stir in spirits, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Sweet Tooth

If you love hard candies...as I do. You can't get any better than sprinkling salt on top of a hard butterscotch candy. It really enhances the flavor, but no one I know will even TRY it to find out!

If you need a quick chocolate "fix", here is a very simple recipe from my childhood.

2.Nestle chocolate powder (the kind for chocolate milk)

First: put in saucepan over med heat and stir till blended. You have to "experiment" for a bit with the amounts. I liked mine very thick (so add smaller amounts of butter (a tablespoon or two))

Then: spread on white bread (my favorite is pepperige farm!)

p.s. this stuff is so good even my mom likes it.

ICEE You See

This is a really neat site! I have a few of my own "don't knock it till you try it" recipes. My favorite breakfast is eggs, french toast, and bacon or sausage with ketchup, syrup, and Tabasco sauce all over it. It's GOOD!!!!! There is also nothing better than an ICEE with popcorn or doritos crushed up in it, but make sure the ICEE is cherry & cola. And can't leave out the toast with peanut butter, jelly, and LOTS of Doritos sandwich. MMM, I'm hungry already!!!


Burnt Butter Cookies

This is what you will need:

1 egg
1 cup of s. r. flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
jam of your choice

Mix sugar, butter together until smooth.
Add egg, mix until creamy.
Slowly add flour mix it all .
Teaspoon by teaspoon, roll into balls.
With your finger, poke a hole in the middle of the balls.
Put your choice of jam into the middle.
Oven on 180 degree heat.
Cook about 15 to 20 mins or until golden brown.

My name is Nikita Coleman and my mum showed me how to do it.

I'm 5 year's old.


- Some type of cola;
- About the same amount of orange juice;
- Some homemade chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate chips.

It's a great type of smoothly my brother and I made up one boring day at lunch time. Pour equal amounts of each drink into a large glass, making a nice brown color. Add the cookies and mix, making a mush to a consistency of your choice. My bro and I experimented with thick and runny. Both are great! Mix and enjoy.


Broiler Special

Someone already mentioned the peanut butter, mayonnaise, and bacon combo that I turn to for comfort, but if you want to turn it into something extra special, put it under the broiler! A nice hard, long broil changes the flavor completely -- and if you like burnt food (you know like burnt toast with jelly or burnt cookies) just let it really broil!! Awesome!

My other favorites also depend on peanut butter as a starting point. And I love variety. I swear I can go through a box of crackers changing from one combo to another. Try some of these on a cracker yourself -- (a) Peanut butter & chocolate chips (b) Peanut butter, jelly & dill pickle slice (c) Peanut butter, mayonnaise & crushed potato chips (d) Peanut butter, jelly & chopped green onions.
