Seems to be the things UK kids no longer know... Take a bit of cooking oil. I like olive Heat it up and fry some onion If you fancy fry some spices with it If say you are doing mince.(I think in US terms) ground meat brown it of it the mix Maybe add a can of plum tomatoes to the mix Maybe chop some carrot or sweet corn or peas Maybe add something else like celery salt. It is IMO more difficult to create something inedeble this way than something you can enjoy. From there you can play..
