Food & Drink #2: Eggs Edition

I can actually feel my arteries congeal just looking at this breakfast. But it's not the grease I'm nauseated by so much as the "salad cream" they're slathering the bacon with. I recommend you serve this dish with a scoop of Crisco and garnish with a cigarette butt.

I'm just going to tell you in advance that if I am ever a dinner guest in your home and you set this dish before me on the table, I will scream like a schoolgirl and black out. Just so you know.(from the Flickr set Misguided Efforts in Cookery)

Another nice little place to find some classic gastroabominations is the Flickr set Gee, That Food Looks Terrible!
How is it that this cheese sauce is flesh hued? I can't explain my feelings toward this dish except to say that never have I seen a breakfast look more dead.

Back in the day, they smoke, drank and ate food like this all the time. Maybe their life expectancy was less, but they died with a smile on their face. Is that an ashtray I see on the table? If not, I'm sure it will soon be used as one. Finisci di magiare!

  1. I LOVE Heinz Salad Cream. I just had some with my cheese sandwich for lunch, ten minutes ago. Stuff is like MAGIC! Don't diss the cream!

  2. If that would make you 'scream like a schoolgirl', you should take a look at my mom's Creamed Salmon...

  3. Ugghhh, the eggs baked in cheese sauce look sooo horrible. You've probably read the complaint written to Richard Branson by a disgruntled Virgin Airlines customer, but if not, check it out:

    This is the only place that I've ever seen pics of food so gross that it rivals the pics here on Retrospace!

  4. Excellently nauseating! Thanks for posting that.

    I've posted a bunch of nauseating foodstuffs over at my blog, if you'd like to check it out. Here's a link to one page with food on it.

  5. Veg Assassin - Not an insult to the salad cream itself, but rather that it has no business being poured on strips of bacon.

    Joe- It can't possibly be as bad as this creation... it looks like molting alien larvae, or some kind of hideous and bloated fungus.

    Green S. - Hilarious article. I knew I was in for it when the article starts with "I would have gladly paid over a thousand rupees for a single biscuit following the culinary journey of hell I was subjected to at the hands of your corporation." Great stuff.

    Jim- I've never seen your blog before - you'd think I would've by now. Excellent stuff there and wonderful gastroabominations!

  6. I believe that this ad should read: Salad Cream: It's Not Even For Salads Anymore.

  7. Hey Gil. Yuck! That looks disgusting. Not sure now if I even want breakfast in the morning. lol

    Thanks for your comments on my blog about my hiatus. I know what you mean. It is fun to blog, but it can be time consuming. It would be one thing if you could make a living off of it. I don't want to see it as work though.

    I did just post a blog post about when I'll return. It's sooner than I thought though. I hope you'll check it out. Thanks.

  8. Those "soft-cooked eggs in croustade" look like something from the movie Alien. I'm half-expecting a facehugger to leap out!
