Not everyone can cook. That’s okay. We all have our strengths and our weaknesses. But some people are simply so bad at cooking, they make things that should truly never exist, let alone be consumed by another human being!
We have to admire the fact that they keep on trying, coming up with their own recipes and working hard in the kitchen in a futile attempt to make something tasty, but they really need to stop! Here are 75 of the worst dishes anybody ever cooked.
1) Does That Thing Have A Heartbeat?
What is it? Well, it looks like a bunch of ugly burger patties stacked on top of each other, with a bunch of brains sitting on top and plopping down the middle. Brain burger cake?
2) Glue Pasta?
Ew! Apparently, this is ‘chicken alfredo pasta’, but it looks more like a bunch of pasta pieces sitting in a pile of glue, or milk, or cream, or… we don’t even want to think about this anymore. Either way, it’s disgusting!
3) #not #a #sick #dinner
No, no, no. This is not a ‘sick dinner’ at all, unless you mean it will make people feel sick just from looking at it! We hope the personal responsible for this never cooks it for a loved one.
4) Let’s Hope It’s The Last Time Too
This was someone’s first attempt at corn pudding. We all make mistakes on our first try, but this is a real disaster! Normally, we’d say “Try again!”, but in this case, we think you should really just stop.
5) That’s A Steak!?
Okay, we can see a baked potato, we can see the cheese, and we see the broccoli too, but the steak? Is that ugly, carbonized shape at the bottom supposed to be a steak? Wow. This proves that even when meals are made with love, it doesn’t always make them tasty!
6) Merry Christmas
All around the world, countless people look forward to Christmas dinner. It’s the highlight of the day for a lot of people, with all of their favorite foods together in one place. Well, you’d better hope you never get invited to this house for the festive season.
7) Chitterling Tacos
Ew. Maybe your great grandma might have enjoyed eating chitterlings (pig guts) back when they were fewer options available, but nowadays, we really can do a lot better! And putting them on tacos is just disgusting.
8) No Thanks, Kim
This must be how Kim K preserves her flawless figure. Apparently, she’s not much of a cook, and even though we’ve been staring at this picture a long time, we still can’t figure out what she’s making!
9) Love Is Blind
They say that love is blind. Well, it must have no sense of taste either! Someone’s partner made them this disgusting yellow slop with a side of roasted tentacles and they called it delicious.
10) Slop In Bed?
Breakfast in bed can be a nice treat to make for someone, and it’s always lovely when you get woken up by your loved ones with tasty food to enjoy on a lazy morning. But if they served you a plate that looked like this, you might just want to dive right out of bed and say you’re not hungry.
11) Trying To Be Arty
Modern bistros and classy restaurants play around with serving styles and presentation in their dishes, breaking the rules of cuisine with their innovative ideas. It looks like this person tried to do the same, serving their ‘creation’ in a broken styrofoam cup. But it just looks like someone vomited onto a plate.
12) The First Of Many
Get ready to see a whole lot of sliced cheese casually tossed onto the top of things and barely given time to melt throughout this list. It seems to be the favorite tool of every awful cook.
13) An A For Effort
This person at least deserves a little respect for making an effort with their recipe, mixing up refried beans, empanadas, and salsa, but the results do not look appetizing at all!
14) The Chicken Is Sinking
We have no idea what’s going on here. It looks like a chicken fell into some quicksand and is slowly fading away into the abyss. Is someone actually supposed to eat this, or is it just some kind of weird voodoo chicken burial?
15) Macaroni Soup
Mac ‘n’ cheese is a timeless classic and it’s actually super easy to cook. It’s a really basic recipe, but somehow, the person responsible for this mix got it all wrong, doing way too much sauce or failing to cook the pasta right so it didn’t actually absorb any of it.
16) Have A Guess
We’ll let you try and guess what this is. Go for it. Any ideas? Okay, we’ll help out: it’s chocolate chip cookies! They were left in the oven way too long and the dough pieces were placed too close together, causing them all to merge into one big, burned mess.
17) No Thank You
Imagine if you were dining at someone’s house and asked them to pass the gravy. Then they hand you this. How are you supposed to react? Yes, that really is supposed to be gravy, even though it looks like a kind of eggy mess filled with crumbs.
18) Dirt, Anyone?
According to the caption posted alongside this picture, it’s supposed to be ‘Cornbread Stuff’. Well, it certainly qualified as ‘stuff’, but it looks more like a tray full of dirt than cornbread.
19) You’re Banned From Cooking Ever Again
Whoever made this mess really shouldn’t be let loose in a kitchen ever again. Clearly, it was supposed to be some kind of mac ‘n’ cheese, but they tossed in a whole mess of peas and the pasta just looks so shiny on top and so dry underneath.
20) Remind Me Never To Go To The Williams’ Place For Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving dinner is many people’s favorite food moment of the year. Delicious turkey, perfectly cooked veggies, yummy pecan pie for dessert, it has it all. Unfortunately, not every family is capable of cooking a super Thanksgiving meal. Some of them make things like this instead.
21) Struggle Slice
Here we are again with the sliced cheese, thrown on some soggy bread and tossed in a microwave to go all gross and wrinkly. Why would anyone do this?
22) So… Romantic?
It’s nice to try and make something tasty for your loved one on Valentine’s Day, and we hope whoever received this meal appreciated the effort their partner made. Unfortunately, even though the steak looks a little like a heart, it also looks totally inedible! They cooked it way too long.
23) What Even Is It?
Another romantic soul decided to make breakfast in bed for their partner, and the guy actually went online and shared a photo of this thing. This image truly does not deserve the hashtags #yum and #drooling!
24) What Are The Green Bits?
Someone was feeling bold when they decided to whip up some homemade sangria, a classic Spanish punch made from red wine and chopped fruit. Unfortunately, it really doesnt’ look too great and we’re not sure what ‘fruit’ this person used. Looks more like a stew than sangria!
25) We’ll Pass
Is this even edible? What is it? Where did it come from? Why did anyone think it should be called food? And why would someone decide to take a photo and proudly upload their creation to the internet? So many questions!
It’s nice that the salon offers wine and cheese while you get a massage or pedicure, but… sliced cheese singles? Really?
27) In His Grave?
Someone happily uploaded this image, boasting that it was the perfect way to “get a man and keep a man”, but we have no idea what they’re so proud about. Jerk chicken is delicious when cooked right, but this is just a burned, black mess.
28) If That’s Right, We’d Rather Be Wrong
Again, it’s nice and cute and sweet that someone would take the time to try and make a steak for their lover on Valentine’s Day, but if this is the best you can do, maybe you should just book a table at a restaurant instead?
29) You Forgot Something
Looks like this person forgot that food, especially meat, needs to be cooked before we actually eat it. Instead, they served up some raw chicken thighs alongside a bunch of ugly yellow mush.
30) Is This A Joke?
Veganism is on the rise and there are actually plenty of amazing vegan recipes out there and meat-free alternatives to popular dishes. This isn’t one of them! Putting a few slices of clementine in a taco does not make it a ‘shrimp taco’.
31) What Are We Looking At Here?
Believe it or not, this is supposed to be a turkey. It looks more like a big hunk of wood or a bunch of crumpled-up paper left on a grill for five hours. What a waste!
32) At Least It’s Colorful
The only good thing we can say about this tragic Thanksgiving dish is that it’s colorful. Apart from that, it’s just a mess. It looks like the ‘cook’ had no idea what they were doing, just tossing random things into the dish and hoping for the best.
33) Want A Little Slime With Your Chicken?
What a sad looking plate. And the person who had to eat it must have been even sadder.
34) Taco Tuesday
Many families enjoy tacos on a weekly basis, but this family should just stop or at least get take-out tacos from a local restaurant, because this really isn’t right! We need a glass of water just from looking at that super dry meat.
35) Eggy Pizza?
Some ingredients just don’t go together, especially when it comes to pizza! We all have our views on pineapple pizzas, but everyone can agree that this hot mess – a pizza completely covered in boiled egg bits – should never be made again.
36) Out Of This World
Did we crash land on an alien planet? What is this? Why are those noodles fluorescent green? And what’s that gross puddle of mess sitting on top of them. We don’t want anything to do with this dish.
37) Salmonella On A Plate
If you’re cooking a red meat, like beef, you can actually enjoy it ‘rare’ or ‘medium’, with a bit of pinkness in the middle. Chicken doesn’t work like that, people! It needs to be cooked all the way through.
38) What A Mess
This plate is just a mess to look at. There’s so much going on, it looks like the leftovers from five different awful meals all got mushed together. And that sad little plastic spoon on the side just makes it so much worse.
39) This Is Offensive
This is so bad it just hurts to look at. What is even going on here? Beans, spaghetti, pickles!? And of course, the classic bad cook favorite: a slice of processed cheese sitting at the bottom with no real purpose whatsoever.
40) Budget Burger
This is what you make when you literally have no other food left in the house and no way of getting to a store. Two pieces of bread and a little breaded piece of chicken. How depressing.
41) Trying Too Hard
Here, we can see someone trying way too hard. They’re doing their best Gordon Ramsay impersonation, thinking that their ugly food will sound tastier if they describe all the ingredients in detail and use phrases like “a sprinkle of sea salt”. We can see through all of that. You smashed some avocado and put strawberries on top. That’s all. And it’s horrible.
