What are your "when no one is watching" recipies?

You know what I mean... those meals you love but they are so sloppy and generally wrong that you really dont make it when there's other people around. Included also are your favorite "lazy" meals, those things that you can make during a comercial break...

Mine:

"soup sandwich". Instant grilled cheese... during one comercial I get some bread in the toaster and some instant soup boiling. During the next comercial I take a bowl and put bread at the bottom, a slice of cheese, another slice of bread and pour the soup on top. It turns into a soggy, cheezy, melty mess that's soo goood....

Mac and cheese skillet casserole: I prepare some of the twisty mac and cheese (never use the delux though, too salty for me), a spoon of mayo and fried ham.

Crab sandwich: I nuke an "artificial crab stick" in the microwave (I keep them frozen and broken up) and have it on bread with wasabi mayo and sliced cucombers.

Hot dog hoagie: I chop up hotdogs (the REALLY cheap kind that comes in a huge package) and fry it up with some onions, latin frying cheese (panela for example) stuff it into a roll with lot's of fixings.

Mac and cheese from the blue box with a can of mushrooms added.

Tomato soup with chunks of cheddar.

Left over spaghetti (noodles included) with mayo on soft white wonderbread
warmed in the micowave for a minute or so. It's been years but, I sure would love one now that you've got me thinking about it.

Fried potatoes, with tons of onions and garlic smothered in
catsup.

My mom used to mix tomato soup with hot dogs over mac-n-cheese. I hated that combination.

Since I have started eating healthier I don't do these combinations much any more, but every once in awhile I will for old times sake.

beef rice-a-roni mixed with ground beef

ground beef and gravy over boxed mashed potatoes

boxed pasta salad with kidney beans and green onions added

campbells pork-n-beans with sliced hot dogs

If I'm in the mood for a sweet sandwich, I use cream cheese and strawberry jam on white bread lol, I love that.

Also a casserole of sliced hot dogs, baked beans, and chunks of pineapple (sounds odd but it's very good).

The jambalaya I just made. I cheated big time and used a few boxes of Zatarains and added ham, chicken, sausage and grilled onions and peppers. Oh, and LOTS of Tobasco!

Here's one from my French Canadian husband: Get a casserole bowl, line it with mashed potatoes, put on a layer of corn, then a layer of drained cooked ground beef, then another layer of potatoes. Season any layer with s and p. Brown under the broiler and eat.

For me, it's either tuna salad sandwiches, Ramen noodles (Gasp!), or mac-n-cheese with a can of tuna added.

That sounds like instant shepards pie, which as far as I know you cant go wrong with tastewise, it's great stuff. Hehehe, lot's of things I've done are here, especially what love's mentioned (down to the garlic powder) but I use regular canned corn instead of creamed. I'll also have corn in a bowl with lime and hot sauce... dont ask.
