Unhealthiest Recipes

The bacon thread in OMNI and then this recipe which I happened to come across on Cooks.com "inspired" this thread. This is awful in two ways - I can't imagine it tastes very good either, but who knows?


TWINKIE DELIGHT

1 lg. box instant vanilla pudding
1 lg. box Cool Whip
1 box Twinkies
1 bar Butterfinger

Cut Twinkies in half, layer in a glass dish. Mix pudding as directed on package. Pour over the Twinkies, cover with Cool Whip. Break up Butterfinger and sprinkle on top.

Everyone knows that the Scottish diet is one of the healthiest out there. Greasy Scotch pies, fried breakfasts, fish 'n' chips washed down with pints of beer and a few ciggies......just some of the foods and afters which has helped us Scots having one of the best rates of hard disease in the world.
And you won't get much healthier than that all time Scottish favourite recipe......"tablet".....apart from the cup of milk that is.

Make the instant pudding with low fat milk, and it is almost a health dessert.

Yes, if you leave out the Twinkies, Cool Whip and Butterfinger.

Cream Cheese Chili Dip and Frito Pie

I learned this while living in the upper Midwest:
1 can chili with beans (Hormel is good)
1 block of soft cream cheese (Philadephia)

Place in microwave-safe bowl, microwave for 1-2 minutes until warm. Mix well.
Sounds horrible, but tastes great.


Frito Pie, the unofficial state dish of Texas, which I learned in the Republic:
Heat chili with beans (your second can of Hormel), mix with a bag of Fritos. Add cheese to taste. Enjoy!

Don't forget your statin!

I make this only on high days and holidays (about once or twice a year) and the result has to be shared around at least a dozen people to minimize heart attacks / sugar overload. It is, however, my most requested dessert ever, and I have one on order for a birthday in September (the fact it is a lot of work is the other reason it is rarely made!)

Base layer:
A substantial layer of chocolate cookies, crumbled and mixed with butter and baked to form a pseudo cheesecake base

Next layer:
A thick, homemade caramel mixed with a few salted peanuts

Next layer:
A thick layer of mousse made from peanut butter and cream

Next layer:
A thick layer of dark chocolate ganache

On the top:
Drizzled homemade caramel, peanuts and chocolate shavings

The beans in the chili are a little too healthy, aren't they?

I grew up with Frito pies in New Mexico. They even served them occasionally in my elementary school cafeteria! Our version was topped with diced onions and tomatoes and a sprinkle of shredded lettuce, just to cover your bases on the fruit/vegetable front.

Not a problem because no self-respecting Texan would ever put beans in his/her chili...or use chili from a can, for that matter.

This is the school cafeteria version, but scaled down batches go over amazingly well at brunch until people find out what goes into it and they start clutching their chest.

(Yes, that is 12 cups melted butter. In fact, it's 12 of most things, so you may as well use 12 lbs of cheese.)

FROZEN HASH BROWN POTATO CASSEROLE
12 (32 oz.) pkg. shredded frozen potatoes
6 c. melted butter
12 cans cream of chicken soup, undiluted
10 lb. grated cheddar cheese
12 (8 oz.) cartons sour cream
4 tbsp. salt
6 sm. onions, chopped
24 c. crushed corn flakes
6 c. melted butter

Place thawed potatoes in 4 shallow cafeteria baking pans. Mix together next 6 ingredients and pour over potatoes equally. Top with crushed cornflakes and drizzle melted butter over all. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Serves 150.

I believe in some places a version of this is called, "Company Potatoes" and, in others "Funeral Potatoes" (not because it kills you, but because they serve it at the luncheon in the church basement after the funeral. ).

I had the same thought.


Here's a family recipe cake that used to send shivers though the northerners when I'd read it to them in college - I think it was the lard, might've been the amount of eggs & sugar

Cream together 2 cups sugar with one cup lard. Add in 3/4 cup whole sweet milk, a teaspoon of vanilla (I substitute Amaretto now that my grandmother is no longer around to find out), and 1/4 tsp salt. Alternating, add in 6 eggs and 2 cups of flour until just combined. Pour into greased & floured bundt pan. Place in cold oven (do NOT preheat oven). Set temp to 325 and bake for 55-60 minutes or until knife stuck in center comes clean. Best served while still hot from oven or after its set (well wrapped) for at least a day. Good plain or with fresh peaches/strawberries and ice cream.

I make it in a crockpot for church potlucks. It's usually one of the "healthier" dishes there.
