But what some people don’t know is it’s not that he won’t eat eggs at all or use them in dishes like salad dressing; they just have to be of really high quality, from organically grown chickens raised and fed natural ingredients. 

Additionally, Guy Fieri once mentioned that as a kid, he saw the “whole chicken” in the egg and understood the process, which likely made him want only to prioritize real, organic eggs.

Fieri ate a rotten, chalky-boiled egg as a kid, which also turned him off.

Cow Brains

Another food that Guy Fieri has spoken out against is cow brains.

Fieri has stated that he’s not a fan of the texture and flavor of brains, and he wouldn’t want to eat them again.

He tried them in the “Blast from the Past” episode in Season 7 at Cattlemen’s Steakhouse – Oklahoma’s oldest restaurant. 

You can tell that Guy Fieri is repulsed when he’s served a breakfast of scrambled eggs and fried cow brains, and he takes a small, squeamish bite and calls it a day.

Liver and Onions

Liver and onions are another dish that Guy Fieri doesn’t care for.

Guy Fieri has explicitly called liver “nasty” and seems to dislike it even more when paired with onions.

He told the Daily Beast in 2018 that this combination of food is his “kryptonite,” and he doesn’t even like being in the same room as it!


Haggis is a Scottish dish made from sheep innards that Guy Fieri has tried but initially didn’t seem interested in doing so.

He was reportedly very squeamish when just watching someone making Haggis for him.

Haggis contains sheep offal, which Guy Fieri already prefers not to eat, and the presentation of the cooked innards isn’t appealing to many people, including Fieri.

However, after trying it, he reportedly said it wasn’t as “scary” as he thought.
