Most Frightening Frozen Dinners on Earth (Slideshow)

It’s never as good as it looks on the box

Atkins Meatloaf

At least the veggies have grill marks!

Banquet Country Fried Pork Meal

This looks so frightening that even the breading is hiding. 

Banquet Sliced Beef

No thanks. 

El Charrito Saltillo Dinner

There’s supposed to be a beef enchilada in red sauce and a cheese enchilada in chili con queso in there, but all we see is muck. 

Lean Cuisine Chophouse Steak Flatbread Melt

Steak? Where?

Marie Callender’s Chicken, Spinach, and Mushroom Lasagna

More closely resembles the Gowanus Canal after a particularly torrential rainstorm.

The mac and cheese actually looks borderline edible here, but it usually does. As for the steak… we’ll pass.

We’re sure there’s a logical reason why, years after restaurants stopped serving Salisbury steak, it’s still one of the dominant frozen dinners. Sure isn’t because it looks decent. Why there are grill marks on this one is a mystery that will never be solved.

One of Cincinnati’s most famous native dishes… doesn’t quite translate to the freezer case. 

Swanson Rib Style Boneless Pork

This McRib knockoff contains 530 calories and 21 grams of fat, and is about the last thing on earth we’d want to eat.
