I guess my friends know I love this kind of thing because they keep forwarding me links to the trendiest greasy endeavours. The latest is Fancy Fast Food, which takes your regular burger combo or chicken bucket, breaks them down into ingredients and repurposes them into a "fancy" meal.
This tortellini dish was created out of Taco Bell's burrito supreme. (Fancy Fast Food)
A two-piece meal from KFC is magically whipped into the "Colonel's chicken corn chowder."
A large Domino's pizza becomes a modern chow mein.
And Taco Bell's burrito supreme somehow ends up as tortellini. "Garnish with parsley and serve with Sierra Mist in a wine glass," says the cheeky recipe.
It's hard to believe all of the transformations — if not for the step-by-step photos that prove how the fast food becomes fancy.
The site is fun to browse, but would you really try to cook something like this in your kitchen? An even better question perhaps, is if you would eat it?
