Is it wrong? Further to Dandbuilder's ranch pizza...

I just threw my family's traditional and much loved pot roast into the crock pot. This recipe, if you can dignify it with that title, calls for Lipton onion soup mix, ketchup and a can of Coke. I nearly caused a riot by trying to gussy it up using caramelized onions, etc. and have been put on notice by the other residents of my house that I shouldn't even consider messing with the pot roast again.

I've served this pot roast to some of my most hard core foodie friends and before they knew what was in it, they were in awe of its deliciousness.

So, a la the ranch dressing pizza, what is the thing that you make that strains your gourmet cred but tastes SO good you can't let it go?
