Thanks to the likes of Outback Steakhouse, Australians have grown used to Americans and their weird take on what their food is like.
While they’re happy to let the awfully calorific Bloomin’ Onion slide, the Aussies are less amused about something called Australian Battered Potatoes.
Spotted by Rachel Lonergan on Twitter, the concoction of deep fried spuds, topped with a very American combination of ranch and liquid, radioactive-looking cheese left people scratching their heads.
Although Australian battered potatoes are similar to potato scallops (or potato cakes, in southern parts of the country), which are a fixture of every fish and chip shop in the nation, you would never see them doused in sauces like these.
The sight of the weird combo of dressing and cheese got people worked up.
It turns out these Australian battered potatoes have been around for a long time, served up at various county fairs in the U.S. since 1987.
“Australian born, Carmel Dyer introduced this tasty, hearty Australian sensation to the US at County Fairs more than 20 years ago,” the website for the product reads.
To be fair, Australian messes up dishes that Americans do really, really well. Prime example being Mexican foods like tacos and burritos, which are often hilariously bad Down Under.
