Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard are no strangers to controversy. Fans seem to constantly find problems with everything from their requests for suspicious ministry donations to Jill’s questionable recipes.


Jill Duggar often posts “recipes” on the Dillard family website. However, fans of the Duggar family are not impressed.

The mom-of-two is often criticized for her less than appetising meals which sometimes include wilted-looking ingredients and weird instructions.  Below are the five most criticized recipes on her website.


Breakfast Casserole

This recipe calls for 1 bag tater tots, butter,  eggs,  milk, and cheddar. However, fans felt her picture of the dish looked painfully dry. Another felt the recipe was very unhealthy and commented:

"First this is more like heart attack casserole and second there’s like a pound of cheese on this."


Sautéed Carrots and Onions

Jill revealed that sauteed carrots and onions are a favorite from the days when she attended violin lessons as a child. It was also a regular dish on her table when she was living in Central America with her husband and children.

The dish is made with olive oil, soy sauce, 2 to 3 medium onions, and 2 pounds of carrots. Jill revealed that the reason she made the dish often was because “it was easier to eat most of our veggies cooked for sanitary reasons.”


Easy Slow-Cooked Pot Roast

"Pot roasts are always a nice meal to come home to after church on Sunday or on a rainy day," says Jill Dillard.

Her recipe calls for potatoes which are unpeeled and uncut, carrots, 1 roast, and beef bouillon cubes. Fans had no issues for with the recipe itself but the photos raised many eyebrows.


“Sweetie….those carrots are ROTTEN! You can’t feed your family that!” one person wrote.

Jill, however, hit back in the comments section. She replied: 

“The carrots are brownish because they’re already cooked. I chose not to cube my potatoes to save time."


Refreshing Chicken Salad

This super simple recipe might be refreshing but fans felt like it definitely did not look appetizing. One fan wrote:

"That's just nasty looking! What is it made with 4 or 5 cups of Mayo."


Pop's BBQ Tuna Fish

Jill revealed that this recipe was actually made up by Jim Bob when her mother was out of town at a ladies conference. He had to feed all the children for the week and came up with meals including canned green beans, canned carrots, canned potatoes, canned butter beans, and canned pineapple. 

"That's a little to strange for me. I'll pass," said one fan in the comments after reading the recipe.
