Hysterically Disgusting-Looking Meals That Will Make You Feel Like a Gourmet Chef | 22 Words

I'm not saying I'm an expert when it comes to cooking. In fact, I've made my fair share of cooking blunders. I'm terrible about measuring things and still insist on making recipes even when I'm missing most of the ingredients. This does not usually work out when it comes to baking. But I'm definitely not as clueless as some people out there. (Remember that American exchange student who started a fire after trying to cook pasta without any water?) The following 37 horrible meals will make you feel like a gourmet chef.

From dangerously undercooked chicken to unsanitary kitchens to the most disgusting ingredients imaginable (so many Kraft singles!), these horrible meals will make you feel a whole heck of a lot more confident in your cooking abilities.

...maybe don't read this right before eating, though.

Or, if you're trying to lose weight, this might be an extremely effective diet tool.

These terrible tacos

I'm going to take a wild guess and say that this person opened several cans of various Chef Boyardee, shoved their contents into poor, innocent tortillas and called them tacos. Hold onto your hats, people. Believe it or not, it just gets worse from here.

This pathetic plate

Is that...strawberry jam...on top of a slice of processed American cheese? And why do those sausages look so shriveled?! Everything about this plate is wrong.

This baffling brunch

Considering my profound love of brunch, this offends me on a deeply personal level.

This alarming chicken

This is a joke, right? Please tell me this is a joke.

This Kardashian creation

Really, Kim? I expected so much more from you. Don't you have a crew of celebrity chefs that could make you something a little less...beige?

This gruesome ground beef

Sure, the steak is overcooked and the asparagus is a tad strange-looking, but it's that horrible combo of greasy ground beef on top of what appears to be angel hair pasta that I simply cannot wrap my head around.

These mean meatballs

Nothing beats a romantic evening enjoying terrible food and equally terrible music. These two were made for each other!

This questionable condiment combination

Ketchup on steak is bad enough but on BANANAS? That's just, well...I'm speechless. If only there were another word for "crazy" that was fruit-related...

This pathetic potluck

This employee must really hate their co-workers. There's just no other explanation.

This egregious assortment

The pancakes on their own don't look awful, but the fact that they're butter-less and syrup-less on a plate next to some grey rice and some type of nondescript sausage is what's truly worrisome here.

This shocking supper

"Shocked" in a bad way, right?

This disastrous display

Who wouldn't want to eat something that looks like it was vomited onto the plate?

This distressing decision

Honestly, I kind of get what they were going for here. It's an inverted take on the classic hot dog. But the real question is...why?

These "nope" nachos

If this is what this person believes nachos to be, I feel very, very sorry for them.

This cheesy catastrophe

What is up with this egregious use of Kraft singles? I can't even tell what's hiding beneath those pieces of yellow, phony-baloney cheese.

This monstrous Mexican meal

Apparently, these are chitterlings tacos. If you don't know what chitterlings are, consider yourself lucky.

This garbage disposal-themed dinner

Is it just me, or does this meal look like it consists of all the random food scraps you scrape into the garbage disposal after you're done cooking?

This frightening fish

Nothing on this plate looks edible. That poor little guy looks as scared as I would be if I this were placed in front of me at the dinner table.

This fruity drumstick

Am I crazy, or is that drumstick coated in crushed up Fruity Pebbles? I guess you can't knock it til you try it...

This big ol' mess

Allow me to (attempt to) list everything on this plate: stuffing, eggs, gravy (?), jam, two slices of untoasted bread, sliced apples, and green olives. Just take a moment to let that sink in.

This unique spin on "cheesecake"

Is this literally just a dinner roll topped with two slices of cheese? Worst birthday ever!

These icky eggs

I think this person is confused. Sure, blueberries and eggs are great breakfast ideas, but combined? NEVER.

This surprising spread

I'm gonna RSVP "no" to this party.

This grotesque gormet

Just looking at this photo makes me want to take antibiotics. Anyone who actually ate it should seek medical attention immediately.

...whatever this is

I have absolutely no idea what this is, but for some reason just the sight of it makes me want to burst into tears. What poor creature died to make something so vile?!

These nefarious necks

In case you were wondering, these are turkey necks. In case you weren't wondering, feel free to continue scrolling and pretend you never saw this.

These crappy buns

No, you're not the only one. These "cinnamon buns" look exactly like dog poop. Let's hope they taste better.

This meaty man

It took me a while to realize that this was most likely supposed to resemble a baby instead of a dead-eyed meat man wearing bacon underwear. What a beautiful baby shower this must have been!

This nutty gumbo

In what world are peanuts an acceptable substitute for crabs?! At least take the shells off first!

And lastly, this absolute horror show

I'm sorry you had to see this. Although you can never un-see it, you can at least get this horrible image out of your head by continuing to scroll. The next article is much less horrifying, I swear.
