Food Nicknames

I had a coffee filter malfunction this morning which resulted in a brew filled with grounds. We immediately call this "cowboy coffee" though I'm not sure why.

Do you have nicknames for food? We also call brussel sprouts "sprussel brouts" quite intentionally. It's just an inside joke that no one really gets. Food nicknames, anyone?
