If you're someone who finds cooking something as simple as mac and cheese a challenge, all that really matters is the presentation, as proven by these gourmet comfort food creations from Reddit’s Shittyfoodporn Channel. Suddenly, the kinds of food that you couldn't escape in college now look surprisingly appetizing.

With a little fancy presentation and a bit of rebranding, basic college food staples turn into high-class menu items like 'Chicken Nuggets on a Bed of Mac N' Cheese,' or 'Bacon and Ramen-Wrapped Hot Dogs with Sriracha Drizzle and Hot Sauce Reduction.' Although the taste may not actually be any different, it sure sounds more appealing than usual. However, just as expensive gourmet meals are served in extremely small quantities, these upscale comfort foods are presented are presented in bite-size servings and it would definitely take a couple of plates to satiate a hungry student.
