We asked the BuzzFeed Community to share the weirdest meals they made while they were in college, and here are the best ones.
1. The "slice" of ramen:
2. The poor man's Pad Thai:
I once made my own version of Pad Thai by mixing peanut butter in spaghetti and sprinkling Cajun seasoning and lime juice on it. It wasn't great. But it was still edible.
3. Chips and...sauce:
I wanted chips and salsa but I didn't have salsa... so I used spaghetti sauce instead.
4. The four flavor challenge:
5. The broke Russian:
6. The messed-up meatballs:
I really wanted meatballs one night during the first few months of living off campus in an apartment, but I was also SUPER broke and just had to cook with what I had in the apartment. So I used turkey meat, Honey Bunches of Oates, soy sauce mixed with hot sauce, soy milk, and mustard to make meatballs that would be "flavorful" and stick together. It wasn't terrible, and I still to this day use honey bunches in my meatballs if I don't have breadcrumbs, adds a nice sweet aftertaste!
7. The poppin' queso:
I made queso with Pop Rocks in it for a little something special. It was horrible.
8. And finally, the bloody pasta:
9. The drunken nugget sandwich:
Nutella spread on dinosaur chicken nuggets put between two Eggo waffles like a sandwich. Best. Drunk Food. Ever.
10. The cornbread abomination:
11. The "whatever is left in the pantry" dinner:
Ramen, Buffalo-flavored Wheat Thins crumbled on top, mixed with Kraft Mac 'N Cheese that was made with water to replace the milk.
12. The poor substitution:
One time in college my friend made me mac and cheese. I took a bite and instantly said, "Did you add sugar to this?" and he goes, "No, but I used the chocolate almond milk instead of regular milk." It was so gross.
13. The deer soup:
14. The fishy eggs:
My now-husband would make scrambled eggs with not ham, not bacon, not sausage... but with canned tuna, while we were in school. After we were long-married I finally fessed up that I really never wanted to eat it again.
15. The soggy sandwich:
16. The cheesy cookies:
17. The Dirty Boy:
Sandwich with raw ramen as bread, peanut butter, cinnamon, and red pepper flakes. We called it the Dirty Boy and it's not actually terrible.
