Dolly Parton says she doesn't eat anything that Miley Cyrus cooks because 'it would have no taste'
Dolly Parton said she wouldn't eat anything that Miley Cyrus cooks because it'd "have no taste."
Parton told Insider she'd have to add some bacon grease to anything her goddaughter cooked for her.
While they used to cook together, Parton said that changed when Cyrus became vegan.
Dolly Parton and Miley Cyrus' strong bond is well known. The pair sing together, crack jokes about each other, and recently co-hosted "Miley's New Year's Eve Party."
But when it comes to food, Parton said she won't eat anything her famous goddaughter cooks.
Parton sat down with Insider on Zoom to talk about her new line of Southern treats with Duncan Hines, and she was happy to chat about Cyrus' cooking style.
"I doubt I'd eat much of anything that Miley cooks 'cause it would have no taste," Parton said with a laugh.
"Even if she cooked me something, I'm sure I'd have to doctor it up a little for myself," she added. "I would have to have some bacon grease."
On top of being a country-music icon, Parton is a pro in the kitchen and enjoys whipping up everything from mac and cheese to the perfect plate of scrambled eggs.
Parton previously told Insider that she used to love making classic Southern foods for Cyrus, including meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and a "big ol' hunk of corn bread."
"Miley's trying to watch what she eats now — she's gone through a lot of phases of being vegetarian or being vegan or whatever," Parton said. "But in the earlier days, or when her defenses are down, we still eat that good ol' food like meatloaf."
Parton recently told Insider that she and Cyrus don't often cook together anymore, but she's still excited for her goddaughter to try her new line of Duncan Hines treats, which includes brownie, biscuit, and corn-bread mixes.
And Parton still loves making a classic Southern breakfast every weekend for her husband of 55 years, Carl Dean.
While eggs are always included in Parton's Southern breakfasts, she said she'll mix up what else is on the menu.
"I just cook whatever comes to mind and whatever I'm in the mood for," she said. "I can cook any of it."
