Ellie Krieger has a bunch of new recipes up on Food Network’s website, featuring meals that are made with BITS AND PIECES OF FAST FOOD MENU ITEMS. Take her Sloppy Joe recipe for example, which is probably the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen in my life. She urges home cooks to “finely chop the filling of a McDonald’s Big Mac,” saute it in a pot with vegetables, and serve it on the original bun it came with.
It’s then conveniently served with a barf bag instead of a napkin.
But wait! There’s more!
She also has recipes teaching us how to make an Asian Chicken Salad with bits of meat picked off fried chicken from a KFC breast/wing meal, and an even more stomach-churning Tortilla Soup made from the fillings of a Taco Bell 1/2-Pound Combo Burrito.
At first, I thought someone hacked into the Food Network’s website and added the recipes, but sadly, they’re real. They’re also featured in this month’s issue of Food Network magazine, where they’re actually referred to as “healthy dinners.” Seriously? Ellie Krieger is the Food Network’s resident DIETITIAN AND NUTRITION EXPERT, and she had the balls to call McDonalds burger patties healthy? That’s pathetic.
What I can’t grasp is why anyone would want to make make Sloppy Joe’s with nasty McDonalds bits when you could just as easily – and more cost effectively – use ground turkey or 93% lean beef. And is it really that hard to grill up a piece of chicken for a salad? Come on now. Even Sandra Lee couldn’t get away with this shit. These recipes aren’t just lazy, they’re stupid. There’s no doubt about it. The Food Network has definitely sunk to a level of repulsion and stupidity previously unknown to man.
Ellie’s Sloppy Joe’s recipe currently has 1 star (out of 5) and 20 negative reviews on Food Network’s website, like this hilarious comment from Al: “Welcome to the Iron Chef trailer park,” he said. “Today’s secret ingredient: Big Mac!!” GAH!!!”
Ain’t that the truth.
UPDATE: A few days after we posted this article, Food Network deleted these disgusting, recycled recipes from their website and replaced them with “normal” recipes that didn’t include fast food menu items. Interesting, eh?
