- They range from pies and casseroles to pancakes that look like pork chops
- But the vast majority of dishes are utterly unidentifiable
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, time is fast approaching for Americans countrywide to show their gratitude for the food on their plates.
But then again there may be one or two who’ll be more grateful going hungry on November 28th than tuck into any of these home-cooked horrors.
The profoundly unappetizing selection of images have been compiled on an Instagram account called cookingforbae, in a bid to chronicle quite how bad bad cooking can be.
They range from sausage and mush to pancakes that look like pork chops and cheese that could be insulator foam to shiny shepherd’s pie.
But the majority of dishes are downright indistinguishable and don’t even have an explanation on the Instagram account, suggesting the cooks themselves weren’t entirely sure what they’d made.
