Worst Idea Ever: MST3K Inspired Dishes.

I have possibly the worst idea of my entire life. I’m a bit of a foodie and always put MST3K on in the kitchen for background noise while cooking. There must be a way to combine these two amazing human experiences in some way! So I ask you, my fellow MSTies, what horrible (Yet edible, and preferably delicious.) concoctions can, or have, you come up with in honor of some of your most unpalatable episodes?

You can try Mitchell. Get a case of cheap beer, bring to room temperature and enjoy.

You could make yourself a Great Stew with chicken, corn, green peppers, chili and (sigh) onions…

So many food options!

Hamdingers (invent your own ham based recipe if you like and call it Hamdingers). Serve it with a box of Chicken in a Biscuit.

A hamburger sandwich and some french fried potatoes.

Hot dogs, in honor of the monster from Horror at Party Beach.

Whatever it was they ate in A Date With Your Family. Make sure to keep that conversation mild! “Emotions are for ethnic people.”

And of course… turkey

Brilliant! And my shopping list for a week is complete! :joy: Desperately trying not to call out the obvious, ham and cheese samich with prosciutto and smoked gouda on a rustic Italian roll, or literally anything with corn.

I read this topic title as meaning plates (actual dishes) inspired by MST3K and I thought, if they riff my food I put on them, I’m buying a complete set! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Right, so since two of us like the idea, when does the MST3K Cookbook come out, and more importantly, when can we expect the royalties?

I mean you could have lobster (the “alien monster” from Teenagers from Outer Space).

Lobster?

I think you mean “Gargon”.

I’m just psyched to see that I’m not the only one who plays MST3K while cooking dinner! Awesome!
