There are some truly criminal candidates for the worst dishes to ever appear on Rate My Plate, but we've had a good go at digging them up for you.

Let's hope you've already finished your breakfast...

"Little bit of heaven"

Rate My Plate/Facebook

This looks more like something you'd find in a nightclub bathroom than a dinner table.

Jesus. What even is it?

"Ketchup sandwich"

Rate My Plate/Facebook

Cheap and not-so-cheerful - this "Ketchup Sandwich" looks like it's genuinely suffering.

It needs to be put out of its misery.

"Slow cooked sosig and mash"

Rate My Plate/Facebook

One user described this monstrosity as the insides of a "colostomy bag".

Creator Terri T must've held their nose tucking into that.


"Roast chicken with potatoes and gravy"

Rate My Plate/Facebook

Head to the big bins outside your house, have a good old rummage around, and scoop up a handful of the contents.

Whatever you pull out will be more appetising than this vomit-inducing "roast chicken with potatoes and gravy".

"Tonight's tea"

Rate My Plate/Facebook

Shane C is really throwing the dice of life with this one.

It's a swimming pool of salmonella.

The fact that a user Photoshopped men in hazmat suits onto the plate says it all.

Points for creativity... but who wants to chow down on a dog's face?

Besides, it bears more of a resemblance to Chewbacca.

"Mac & Cheese Pork Loaf"

Rate My Plate/Facebook

This unsettling hybrid is definitely infected and there is no cure.

Didn't something like this appear on the set of "Alien"?

"Mushrooms on toast"

Rate My Plate/Facebook

There's a comment on this photo that suggests these "mushrooms" were tipped onto the toast by a cement mixer.

Seems likely.

Looking at this putrid pile of sludge, you can almost taste the gravel.

"Bacon, Eggs & Beans"

Rate My Plate/Facebook

Of course, Carol C had to make the cut - the most infamous Rate My Plate poster of all time.

This soppy mess has got of a tonne of comments, but Michael Orozco perhaps summed it up best: "Thanks Carol, that’s the kids crying. Sake."

We feel like bawling, too. That poor fry-up is on life support.

"Roast Chicken Dinner"

Rate My Plate/Facebook

"A good vet could bring that chicken back," says Lucinda Hoban in the comments section.

We think she might be right. A bit of CPR and this fowl would be clucking again.
