3. Vegetable Hi-Hat

I can definitely get behind having meatloaf with green beans and mashed potatoes (I think that’s mashed potatoes). But, adding evaporated milk, peaches and marchino cherries to a meatloaf?

4. Tuna Macaroni Cheese Loaf

This was only made grosser by garnishing it with lima beans.

7. Frosted lime-walnut salad

Ugh, more gelatin! Also, to make it more unappetizing, the recipe calls for cottage cheese, cream cheese and mayonnaise.

8. Almonds-In-A-Haystack

This is a heart attack inducing combination: Take 6 cups of ham and coat it with an inch of Miracle Whip.

A delicious combination of bologna, barbecue sauce, olives and creamed corn, served elegantly over a dinner roll.
