Worst. Sandwich. Ever.

I often have people ask me to identify the best dish I ever made.  Never have I had anyone ask me the worst.  Too bad, because it’s a much easier question to answer.  By far the worst thing I ever made was a peanut butter, bacon, and toasted garlic sandwich.  It was terrible.

I know what you’re thinking—it sounds terrible, I should have been able to know it would be bad without going through the agony of eating it.  But, I lured myself into thinking it might be good: I like peanut butter and bacon sandwiches; I like bacon and toasted garlic together; why not unite all three?

As it turns out, sometimes the whole is less than the sum of the parts.

So, what’s the worst meal/ dish you ever created?

    There was a restaurant in the Strip District years ago (can’t remember the name) and I got a salad with fennel and squid (what was I thinking?) and it was the slimiest, strangest tasting salad ever. Haven’t had anything in my mouth worse than that sine.

    I don’t know if this is the worst thing I’ve ever made, but it’s the most recent. I attempted to make my own pad thai, only it came out tasting like peanut sauce on spaghetti. There was nothing delicious about it.

    Very bad Borscht

    Bean soup. Even my husband who pretty much will eat anything wouldn’t eat more than one bite.

    I had a horrible turkey burger experience. I have since then had many successes.

    I made a barely and vegetable stew in the crockpot. Awful. Then, somehow, I thought adding lima beans would help.

    It was probably the least child-friendly (or human-palate-friendly) dish I’ve ever served my family.
