The Ultimate Disgusting Thanksgiving Dinner

Food & Party 9

disgusting thanksgivingSure there will be some Thanksgiving dinners gone wrong. Someone decides a turducken should be cooked like a regular turkey, or as is the case with Sweatpantsmom's lime green Jell-o, horrible is simply a family tradition.

But if you really want to prepare the most disgusting Thanksgiving meal possible, while still remaining true to all of the T-day staples, look no further than the Thanksgiving Turkey Cake. It looks pretty yummy sitting up there in the corner, right?

Read on if you'd like to throw up your lunch, and destroy the fantasy that this is a delicious dish, and not a horror show.

The Thanksgiving Turkey Cake actually is turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and marshmallows -- all in one layer cake. If you really want to go for it, you can pour gravy over your slice. But please, don't go for it.

Chow also gives detailed instructions with fascinating photos on how to assemble. It takes real skill to create this Thanksgiving Turkey Cake. But I'm willing to bet even more skill to eat a slice in its entirety.

Stick with your lime Jell-o mold, your tofurkey, even your undercooked turkey that may or may not give your guests salmonella. Just don't bust out this layer cake unless you want a load of gagging people around your table this year.

What's the worst Thanksgiving meal you've ever had?

Oh my gosh, that is insane.  The worst meal I had was at someone's house who obviously prepared food with her cat like, IN the bowls or something.  Blech.

Clam stuffing. Sorry, just can't get behind it. Sick sick sick.

I swear, I'm going to make that for my kids. They would totally go crazy! I'm gonna skip the marshmallows on top, though, because marshmallows happen to be the worst food on the planet.

I don't get why that's so gross. Granted I'd skip the top 2 thigns because I'm not a fan of sweet potatoes...and without sweet potatoes the marshmallows would be weird. 


But the combo sounds just fine...if you eat it separately on the plate, why is together so gross?


Of course, this is coming from the person who mixes a portion of the leftovers together, throws them in a pan, tops with cheese and bakes for a maybe that's why I think it wouldn't be all that bad.

yeah, proudsinglemum, I do the same thing! I just got this brilliant idea to make it into cupcakes. You put something in a cupcake, the kids will eat it. I made sausage cupcakes tonight.

Most people would call it toad in the hole, or sausages surrounded by a puffy batter. Put it in a cupcake tin, and my kids eat it like it's cake.

I don't see anything wrong with it. It even takes up less room then if you had them all in bowls.
