Casseroles People Bring But No One Eats

Introduction:Everyone has the Oh-My-God-She-Brought-It-Again Casserole that shows up at every family and work food gathering. No one ever eats it. Everyone talks about it. Yet it still shows up gathering after gathering after gathering.

    Mystery Meat and Macaroni Casserole

    They say it's hamburger, but I wouldn't bet my life one it. Sometimes I wonder what casserole people think. "Hmmm. I don't know what that stuff in the fridge is, but it's starting to go bad. Let's add cream of mushroom and some noodles. No one will know."

    Cheesy Broccoli Casserole

    While I usually agree that cheese makes any vegetable, the rule just doesn't apply to broccoli. Broccoli's gross and even a whole block of Velveeta doesn't make it better. In fact, the only thing worse than broccoli and Velveeta is broccoli, Velveeta, chicken stock and crushed Ritz crackers all baked together. Now truth be told, I have seen a chunk taken out of the casserole dish. Moms put it on kids' plates because they think it's nutritious for kids but kids never eat it. They push it around and around and around on their plates and then try to give it to the dog when Mom's not looking. Poor dog.

    Grandma's Leftovers Surprise

    All my friends had grandmas who could cook. I'm jealous. Both of mine liked to throw whatever they had in the fridge in a pan and cook it until it was burnt. While this might be fine when eating alone, it was more than a little embarrassing when they brought it to public functions. The most memorable: mashed potatoes smashed into a pan and covered in little smokeys, barbeque sauce, cream of mushroom and American cheese. Some food just should not be combined.

    Tuna Surprise Casserole

    The only surprise in Tuna Surprise Casserole is that no matter how many times it goes untouched, someone always brings it. It should be called It-Smells-Like-Cat-Food-And-Looks-Like-Cat-Barf Casserole.

  • 05

    Green Bean Casserole

    I love green beans. They are one of the perfect foods. But I've never seen anyone eat my aunts' green bean casseroles topped with French's French fried onions. Considering my family pot lucks includes 50-200, that's saying something. In fact, I'd rather eat Grandma's Leftover Surprise Casserole.




Final Thoughts

I actually feel blessed. My friend Elf grew up with a neighbor who brought purple beet casserole with onions and crunchy crumbly bits to every wedding, potluck, reunion, baby christening, birthday party and bat mitzvah....

    LOL ... your number three reminds me of the "soup" some money conscious people make where they basically clean out the fridge and make soup of all the left overs. Talk about GROSS me out! lol!

    I hate hot tuna. So I rate tuna surprise as the all time worst casserole. What an interesting list. Do these things just come to you, like a dream?

    I'm shoked, you a veg and hatin' on yummy broccoli? Unheard of!

    Nothing beats Bryan's Chicken Surprise...noodles chicken, BBQ sauce, peanuts and Potato Chips. : P This was BEFORE he learned to cook.

    @PajamaMommy Lil' Smokeys are mini cocktail sausages made of mystery meat and drowned in BBQ sauce. They're a hit at "fancy" redneck parties.

    I actually like those green bean cassaroles but I'll skip all the rest.

    Hilarious disdain! You had me at the word casserole, but number four did make me laugh out loud! Yet another fine list!

  • NancyHardin 12/3/2010 Flag This Comment

    Gad girl, our thoughts are so alike it's spooky! Never could stand any of these things either.
