Your "evil food" (super unhealthy) recipe?? :)

Mine is an English muffin half spread with some full fat mayo & sprinkled with sugar, grilled in a toaster oven until the mayo gets bubbly & slightly browned. I discovered this method of eating English muffins when I was like 10.

Do any of you guys have super unhealthy food recipe you guys don't eat anymore??

  1. Nope, if I love it I eat it, if only rarely.
    I find the notion of evil food distasteful.

      Hello, and thank you for your reply! :)

      I was just saying it was an evil kind cos it is SO unhealthy & yet super delicious & addictive, but it can also kill some of us.

      (Note: my doctor tells me I can't eat so much fat because of my organ condition, and also my grandma recently passed & the ultimate cause was her type II diabetes.)

      Sorry if my post was upsetting, and thank you for your input. Please take care :) <3 xox

        It wasn't upsetting. Just a pet peeve about calling food evil.
        Food is just food.
        If anything fits the category for me it is processed food like Cheetos, but if I liked them I would still eat them moderately.

          Agreed, food should not have a value judgement - it's not good or bad.

            Someone once noted that in 21st century America, food has become one of the few things considered "sinful."

              But processed foods engineered from GMOs to be as addictive as possible...those are "bad" if there is a bad. Or at least the intentions behind them and their impact are.

      2. A favorite recipe from Mom: apple dapple coffee cake. Which is a simple, very rich coffee cake baked full of apple slices (no peel! this is cake!) with a crucial added ingredient: milk sauce. 2 c milk, 1 c sugar, one stick butter, a little vanilla. Cooked up and poured on your apple cake, ohhh. I eat it once a year, and it's like going to heaven.

          We used to make that, only we used cream instead of milk!

        2. Hostess Twinkies and Hostess Cupcakes. I've bought them twice since they came back, and damn, I enjoyed the hell out of each and every one. Not a recipe, but wow, I'm so enamored of them. and I don't have much of a sweet tooth usually.

            I think the newer ones taste better because they're actually fresh...as in, made recently! LOL

          2. Yorkshire pudding where the batter is poured right into the hot drippings (fat) from a rib roast. Soaks it all up and turns golden brown.

            1. Toutons. Bread dough fried in salt pork and then spread with molasses. I also like the rashers I render the fat from -- especially when the rind is crunchy!
