Creamed Candy Corn: Yes, it’s a great way to get rid of old Halloween candy. But it’s also kind of repulsive, no? [via Serious Eats]

Turbaconducken: A chicken inside a duck inside a turkey, all wrapped in bacon. [via NYC Food Guy]

Gravy Pizza: This is how now to deal with any left over gravy. Are you suddenly too good for ranch dressing?[via This Is Why You’re Fat]

Mashed Potato Rolls: These might look like simple rolls, but they’re actually cheddar cheese rolls filled with cheesy mashed potatoes. Which sounds like a tasty heart attack. [via This Is Why You’re Fat]

Puff Turkey: There’s something creepy about a fowl-shaped pastry. [via This Is Why You’re Fat]

Cherpumple Pie: The bottom is pumpkin pie inside a spice cake. The middle is apple pie inside a yellow cake. The top is cherry pie inside a white cake. And it’s all surrounded by cream cheese frosting. [via This Is Why You’re Fat]

Thanksgiving Leftover Sushi: Something about this — maybe the imagined textures? —makes us want to gag. Save yourself the time and make a sandwich. [via This Is Why You’re Fat]

Bacon Pumpkin Pie: From the guy whose friend came up with the recipe: “He sought to bring bacon to the dessert menu, and hunted for a pie media capable of sustaining a bacon infusion while retaining deliciousness. Pumpkin (perhaps rhubarb) is the only one he could think of.” [via Neatorama]

BBQ Donut: And you thought it was impossible to ruin a deviled egg. Not when you’ve wrapped it in a beef/pork ground meat mixture, and smoked it to “perfection” on the BBQ. [via This Is Why You’re Fat]

Pecanless Pie: Admittedly, this one doesn’t look that gross. Until you realize that you’re looking at a pie that’s made with corn chips. [via This Is Why You’re Fat]
