Who doesn't love a steaming batch of fresh "sketti" (that's spaghetti for the uninitiated), marinaded in huge blobs of butter and tomato sauce? Watch Honey Boo Boo's mom, Mama Bear, whip up some of her family favourites.

Who doesn't love a steaming batch of fresh "sketti" (that's spaghetti for the uninitiated), marinaded in huge blobs of butter and tomato sauce?

If that doesn't whet your appetite, how about some "cranberry lasagna"? It's Honey Boo Boo's favourite, and unlike the traditional, creamy layered pasta dish, consists simply of tinned cranberry sauce with a thick layer of sugar on top.

Haute cuisine, this sure isn't.

Mama June (33), mother of Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson), has a few recipes up her sleeve, and shows them off in all her awkwardness in her mini-series Cooking with Mama June.

The six episodes, which aired last year on TLC's website, amassed hundreds of thousands of views, amidst much criticism at the kilojoule-packed, nutritionally-void meals that she produces.

Here are a few of the most intriguing (read: disgusting) meals Mama June cooks:

1. The best uses for ketchup and cheeseballs

2. BBQ chicken and rice, with A LOT of butter

3. (Barely cooked) pork "casserole", surprisngly with no butter

"I wish an had an extra finger. Then I could grab more cheeseballs!" Honey Boo Boo says with enthusiasm. Cheeseballs are a staple in the house, and Mama June's offspring just love to snack on them all day.
