10 Regrettable Retro Food Recipes

These are the type of recipes that Julia Child’s nightmares were made of.

1. Ham and bananas hollandaise.

I know what your thinking, this is totally going to become your new brunch staple.

2. Barbecue cottage cheese salad

This is an unholy alliance of flavors and textures.

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.

5. 7-Up and Milk

Nothing says “wholesome” like adding half a soda to a glass of milk.

6. Pie Plate Salad

If a canned vegetable gelatine salad wasn’t bad enough, the recipe recommends you garnish it with tartar sauce.

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.

9. Corn Bologna Boots

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

10. ?

Best guess: a chilled salmon loaf, slathered with an outer layer of guacamole?
