What is a food abomination? It's is the unholy coming together of two (or more) food items to combine them into one magnificent (or really tragic) new dish. For all food abominations, just in case you didn't know it was clear, these are not, nor ever should be, everyday food. All of this food should technically come with a surgeon general's warning. These are try it once or only have every once in a long while foods.
1. Totchos...Tater Tots + Nachos
The story goes that in some dive bar somewhere, someone said, instead of using nacho chips to make nachos, let's make them with tater tots which are basically a hash brown in a small cylindrical form. Easy to make. Buy a bag of frozen tater tots, cook them as per the instructions, and then top with anything you'd usually put on your nachos or baked potatoes for that matter as you are using tater tots. You can use nacho cheese, but shredded works better.
It works because it's literally everything you love about nachos, but over top crispy browned potatoes. You don't have to contend with the loud crunching and crackling of nacho chips, and the potatoes certainly help fill you up faster. As noted, probably started in a dive bar somewhere, because in the last few years, it has become a hangover or late night staple of the bar set.
2. Cronut...Croissant + Donut
Yeah, I wouldn't try to make these on your own, but rather google where to find these, because if you are one of the few who hasn't tried them yet, they will delight whilst giving your health a good old run for your money (or at least slow wheezing crawl). It's everything you love about a fried donut combined with that flaky buttery crackly crispiness of a good croissant. It's a confusing but delicious mouth taste, but definitely worth the occasional break from your diet.
3. Pizza Casserole
Casseroles are literally the dumpsters of the food world. Just about anything can go into a casserole...rice, pasta, fish, beef, chicken, shrimp, veg, you name it, but my favorite is the pizza casserole. Cook up your favorite type of pasta, and then make a pizza or marinara sauce or use the jar variety, and dump in anything you typically put on your pizza including Italian seasonings fresh or dry, and top the whole thing with cheese. This is a basic and delicious pizza alternative, except it's basically pizza pasta. If you insist on trying to make it healthy skip the cheese, use lean turkey or veg and opt for a vegetable based pasta.
4. Designer Milkshakes
Are you clenching your heart in your chest just looking at this? Yes, you heard right, designer milkshakes. They are an unholy abomination because they combine the sweet innocent milkshake made with a simple combo of milk and ice cream blended to a smooth consistency, and top it with whole pieces of cake, cereal, donuts, cookies, candy, lollipops, pretzels, peanut butter, cheesecake, brownies, cupcakes, frosting, and on, and on. This is literally what you imagined when you were like 6, being an adult would be like being able to eat whatever you wanted all the time (and apparently you were right). Easy to make at home or google and find a local shop that caters to this madness. If you finish one in all it's unholy glory, all I can say is you're a sweet tooth sadist.
5. Bacon Pancakes or Candied Bacon
Bacon, how I love the. Typically one may eat a pancake with a side of bacon, but forget that. Cook the bacon, lay down a strip of pancake batter in a hot pan/griddle, put in a strip of the cooked bacon in it, and coat it until fully covered, and cook your pancake as usual. It's basically a bacon sandwich of epic breakfast proportions.
If you have a sweet tooth, try candied bacon, simple, yet sinfully delicious. http://www.closetcooking.com/2015/12/maple-candied-bacon.html
