Your Once Famous But Now, "Oh My God I Cant Believe I Used To Serve This" Dish

We all started somewhere right? What was your signature dish, the thing that you, "had nailed" that you would serve your guests when you were just a clumsy, uneasy on your feet chowhound, that today you would never even consider serving?
I'll start...I'll overlook my "Fancy California Dip" the one I made in my Betty Crocker Blender, (Sour cream and Liptons Onion Soup Mix) when I was 10 and move right up to my early twenties and the dish of the day was, "Sam's Blue Cheese Chicken"! My face is getting hot just typing this but if I wanna hear yours I gotta share mine right?
Whole Chicken (cut up)
Wishbone Italian Dressing
Bob's Big Boy Blue Cheese Dressing
Green Giant Mushrooms in a jar

Soak the chicken in the Wishbone for hours....then Broil chicken, (have not used my broiler in 10 years) and baste with "marinade" Meanwhile dump jar of Bob's in a sauce pan, add enough milk to thin it to, "Sauce" texture and add a jar of mushrooms.
When chicken is cooked through, (read overcooked) place in a large dish and pour blue cheese sauce over the top......yea. Kinda gives me the poopies just thinking about it! I don't even think I served a side with

Your turn everyone!
