    Or let's play Word's Worst Food Combinations.  Tell us about the worst frankendish you've ever encountered, either for real or in a recipe book.  (yes time to break out those 70's recipes from the back of gelatin pouches)

    I'll start with one that's all too common. 

    Pickles wrapped in Carl Budding chipped beef and cream cheese.

    Wasn't in a cookbook, it was served by my brother at deer camp. He took the standard bisquick egg bacon pie and substituted sliced deer summer sausage for the bacon. The dog wouldn't even eat it.

    Talking about bananas.... when I was a kid my mother tried to make a dish that would appeal to our children taste I guess. She made roasted bananas (the regular ones, not plantain) wrapped in ham with cheese. It was utterly disgusting (to me at least)!! /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif

    I once had a new cook that diced up dill pickle and mixed them into his beef Stroganoff-

    That was a revolting waste of beef----------

    I don't have a particular dish but I do have a 1959 General Foods Kitchens Cookbook that I keep around just because the poor quality of the "convenience" food ingredients makes every dish sound absolutely revolting. Directions to use canned vegetables and include their juice, minute rice, packaged pre-cooked rice, cake mixes, flavored gelatin, prepared salad dressings are the norm. It is the rare cookbook that doesn't include even one thing that I would consider making but this one has always defeated me. I don't think there's a fresh vegetable in it aside from iceberg lettuce.
