Jill, 26, posted a recipe for “Pops’ BBQ Tuna Fish.” On her blog, she explained her father Jim Bob invented the recipe when he had to feed seven kids ages seven and under for a week while her mom Michelle went out of town.

Jim Bob fed the kids five-course meals of “canned green beans, canned carrots, canned potatoes, canned butter beans and canned pineapple,” which may explain where Jill’s love of canned foods began.

One night, Jim Bob switched things up and doused a can of tuna with KC Masterpiece barbecue sauce, and a family favorite was born.

Jill admitted, “I’m not sure if we liked it so much just because it tasted way better than everything else we’d had that week, or if we were so young that the combination didn’t sound strange enough to scare us off from the start and then when we tried it, we just found it appetizing.”

Fans weren’t impressed with the recipe or the story behind it. “I don’t know what it is and it obviously tastes good to some but I couldn’t get past it looking a little too much like cat food,” one follower wrote.

Another concurred, writing, “It looks like cat food. Yikes!”

Others advised Jill to work on her food styling skills. “This looks so gross! They say you eat with your eyes first and just this presentation is making my stomach voice some serious objections,” said a follower.
