Like true millennials, we’ve grown bored of staple foods like pizza, tacos and donuts. So we’ve decided to mix and match our favorite dishes to create monstrous food mashups that are out of this world. Some of these food hybrids, like the chocolate eclair hot dog, sound more disgusting than delicious. But others might be worth trying. Below are eight of our favorite food mashups ever created.

1. Spaghetti Bread

Why eat a bowl of spaghetti with a side of bread when you can stuff the spaghetti inside the bread? We love this food mashup because it combines two of our favorite foods into one delicious, carb-loaded meal. Tomato or meat-based spaghetti sauces work best for this dish. You can make this delicious spaghetti bread recipe from allrecipes.com in a little over an hour.

2. Oreo-Stuffed Brownies

Tortillas are good, but at the end of the day, no salty carb can compare to the deliciousness of French fries. That’s why we love this taco-and-French fries hybrid dish.

Cherpumple isn’t just a funny name — it’s a dessert that consists of three different pies stuffed inside of three different cakes (yes, you read that right). This novelty cake combines cherry, pumpkin and apple pies with three different flavors of cake mix — usually chocolate cake mix, yellow cake mix and spice cake mix. We guarantee that this multi-layered cake will satisfy even the strongest sweet tooth. Here’s a full cherpumple recipe from the Today show for the experienced bakers out there who want to attempt it at home.
