Processed Food Recipes: Heinz Ketchup Cake, Cheez Doodle Eggplant And More (PHOTOS)

If you're like most of us, you typically turn to Coca-Cola for a drink, Heinz ketchup for dipping your fries and Fritos chips for snacking. But it turns out, there's so much more we can be doing with those processed foods that are sitting in our cupboard. And maybe we've just been too closed-minded to realize the full potential of these foods (or maybe we just know better).

It's recently come to our attention that many major processed food brands (like the ones mentioned above) offer recipes with creative ways to cook their product into your next meal. While the thought of many of these recipes might not necessarily inspire hunger, we have to admit that we're tempted to make the Hellman's Molded Fruit Salad, just out of sheer curiousity.
