Video: Unbelievable, OK, Weird, Foods and Recipes

From Denny: Just when I think I'm going to post something typically Cajun I run into this funny food video! These have got to be some of the most disgusting, too salty, too sugary, fatty, highest calorie, wonderful tasting recipes around. The author of the blog turned book, This Is Why You're Fat! gives you a sampling.

These are some crazy recipes! Try fried Coke - now how do you fry a liquid was my first thought? Then there are Bacon Cinnamon Rolls, McNugget-tinis (vodka and McDonald's chocolate milk shake with fried battered chicken nuggets only as a garnish, whew!), Mac 'n' Cheese layered into your meatloaf (which actually looks kinda pretty) and an Elvis Presley donut - peanut butter frosted and garnished with sliced bananas and slices of bacon on top. To qualify as "why you're fat" category a recipe has to be smothered in cheese, deep-fried or wrapped in bacon. There are a lot of bacon blogs out there, folks! And we wonder why America is fat!

If you are game - and crazy enough - to make these recipes, enjoy!

Bacon cinnamon rolls

From: "This Is Why You're Fat"

INGREDIENTS

• 1 container bacon strips
• 1 container cream cheese
• 1 roll ready-to-cook cinnamon rolls

DIRECTIONS

Cook the bacon in a pan until one side is mostly done, but not fully cooked through. Dry the bacon of grease, then slather the mostly cooked side of the bacon with cream cheese.

Unroll the cinnamon rolls on a hard surface. Place the cream cheese-slathered bacon onto the unrolled cinnamon rolls. Roll the cinnamon rolls back up with the cream cheese bacon inside.

Place the rolls on a nonstick baking sheet and bake for 17-20 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and top with icing provided in the cinnamon roll packaging.

Bacon mac and cheese meatloaf
(Italian grandmothers must be rolling over in their graves...)

From: "This Is Why You're Fat"

INGREDIENTS

• 2 eggs
• 2 slices wheat bread, crumbled
• 2 tablespoons ketchup
• 1 large garlic clove, minced
• 2 tablespoon parsley, minced
• Worcestershire sauce to taste
• Cayenne pepper to taste
• Salt to taste
• Black pepper to taste
• 1 1/4 cups onion, sliced
• 10 strips of bacon
• Premade macaroni and cheese

DIRECTIONS

Mix ground chuck, eggs, bread, ketchup, garlic, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper with hands in a large bowl.

Meanwhile, sweat onion until translucent but not brown. Allow onions to cool, then add to meat mixture. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and move to refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lay bacon across the width of a loaf pan. Press a layer of meat into the bottom of the pan, on top of the bacon. This layer should fill exactly one third of the loaf pan.

Scoop some of the macaroni and cheese into the loaf pan, making sure to press out any air bubbles. This layer should also fill one third of the loaf pan.

Form a slab of meat in the approximate size and shape of the remaining one third of the loaf pan. Transfer the slab to the loaf pan. Add or remove meat as necessary to ensure a snug fit.

Fold strips of bacon back over the top of the meatloaf. Roast until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
