Wacky Recipe Wednesday Week No. 5

Bringing you recipes that make you say, ‘Huh? What?’

Bringing you recipes that make you say, ‘Huh? What?’

Welcome to the fifth week of The Daily Meal’s Wacky Wednesday recipe roundup, a series where we reach out to our talented Culinary Content Network of food bloggers and request their strangest, weirdest, and most interesting recipes — creations so “wacky” they make you pause and ask, “Wait…what are you making?”

“Wacky” could mean a strange flavor pairing or interesting cooking method, or it could mean a dish has an absurd presentation or ridiculous background story. No one really knows what craziness Wacky Wednesday will rake in, but I can tell you this: We are definitely having some fun with it.

Check out this week’s wackiest recipes:

Mini Spinach Cakes With Limoncello Glaze and Strawberry Mice


This recipe was inspired by the children’s book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and although meant for adults nostalgic for childhood, you can swap the limoncello for plain lemon for a kiddie version.

Nana’s Mac and Cheese

To be fair, a quick Google search revealed that people do in fact put olives into their versions of mac and cheese… but it still made me say, “Huh? What?” Plus, there is ground beef and cans of tomato and mushroom soup in there! Wacky, indeed.

Check out this recipe for Nana’s Mac and Cheese from the Moore Or Less Cooking blog.  

Stir-Fry Burger


This recipe combines two of A Sweet Potato Pie’s favorite things: burgers and stir fries. A little bacon, some noodles, teriyaki sauce, and a bun, and you too can create this wacky fusion masterpiece. Click here for the recipe.
