Foods That Taste Better When Burnt A Little

I love all my meats are medium rare to medium.

Well except pork.

If something is overcooked, I can't even look at it.

But I do love a good burn or char.

Redditor NiceSwimmingSugar wanted to make everybody a little hungry by asking:

"What tastes better a little burnt?"

I like a burger burnt. I like it medium too... but burnt works.

Carb Away

"Hashbrowns specifically."


"In all forms!"



"Roasted carrots. Make them just a bit black on the edges and they're so freaking good."


"Basically just any kind of cooked vegetable is better off a little crispy. Almost all of them that aren't leafy greens."

"It's thankfully different now but a few decades ago we all grew up with crappy boiled vegetables and maybe canned ones. It seems like most people have upped the veggie game a little bit."


Best of the pieces...



"You cannot claim to have the best BBQ if you don't have burnt ends. Burnt ends are the greatest piece of meat you can put in your mouth. And yes, I mean even better than that."

"I'll start the freaking war, I don't give a crap. Kansas City invented burnt ends. You clowns in the other wanna be BBQ capitals are literally not even making the best item!"

"Therefore, KC BBQ>>>>>"


"Burnt ends really are life Shout-out to Bears smokehouse. Originally in CT of all places, there's a few locations now. Burnt ends are out of this world."


the brassica family...

"Broccoli... idk why, but Broccoli."


"Seconded. On the why: it's something about sulphur reacting compounds in veggies of the brassica family. This video comes to mind. Very informative!"


"Broccoli raw? ick."

"Broccoli steamed? okay I guess."

"Broccoli roasted until a bit charred? chef's kiss..."


Protein Burn




"I had a slightly burnt brat from a grill at a rooftop party at 1 am in Munich one time. It was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. 😂"


Sausages must be burnt. Amen.

"Most anything you grill. I like things a bit more than a little charred."


Good Old American...

"Dogs. Slightly burnt Hotdogs."


"Especially red casing hot dogs. Grill marks, of course, but also a little bit more than that and they're just perfect with some mustard, onions, and occasionally, bbq sauce."


"Love hot dogs burnt on the grill. More than slight, full on burnt with plenty of yellow mustard and relish for topping when they’re ready for a mildly toasted roll."


a little divot...

"Grilled onions."


"Hell yeah.

"I did a yellow onion, whole, in the oven recently. Carved out a little divot on top for butter and bouillon, then wrapped it in foil and put it next to my baking potato. I bet it would be really good on the grill, too."

"Felt weird eating an onion and a potato for dinner, like, someone in Skyrim... but it was incredibly tasty."


burn the flour



"I remember when I was little, whenever my dad made me a quesadilla, he would always make it a little burnt, and to this day, I still can’t make one that has the right amount of burntness as my dad used to do."


"As a Mexican, I can confirm. Especially if you use flour tortillas."

"Pepperoni on a pizza."


"Non-crispy pepperoni is about a 4 on a scale from 1 to 10 in my book, but burn the edges a little and it goes straight to 10."


"Pizza in general."


Now I'm hungry. Glad I have ideas for what to eat!

We've all found ourselves annoyed by the ticks or habits of others.

Some of these are fairly common, such as chewing with your mouth open, cracking your knuckles, or whether or not they pronounce the "T" in often.

Some habits are a bit more unusual, though.

Only the people guilty of possessing these habits might not realize that they're unusual until they are told by someone else that practically no one, or literally no one, else does them.

It's an eye-opening, sometimes humiliating discovery.

My entire childhood was comprised of watching Hollywood movies about high school.

From High School Musical, I learned that theater is uncool and no jock would be caught dead in a musical. The Breakfast Club made me think Saturday detention wasn't so bad. I learned that teachers can be manipulated from Clueless, and Mean Girls showed me how divided high school kids are based on their cliques.

When I actually started high school, none of those lessons helped me. I knew several jocks who were talented musicians and starred in every musical. I never had Saturday detention, but I heard enough horror stories to know it was awful. Teachers are not fools who bend to a student's will, and cliques are almost a myth. Yes, the cheerleaders hang out with other cheerleaders, but they don't dump food all over the honors kids.

Very few high school movies reflect the actual high school experience. Redditors know this all to well and were ready to share their stories.

I love money.

If I had an endless supply, I might throw it away with abandon.

But I am not blessed with that level of abundance.

Some people really take spending to an extreme.

To a point where maybe others should be in charge of their purse and wallet.

What is wrong with people?

Have we lost all sense of decorum?

I get that people need to speak their minds, but there are some moments where silence is the better option.

When you're naked and intimate with someone, it's best to not be mean.

I would've thought that would be a given.

Unless they're mean or creepy than do what you must.

But when you're alone in bed with a partner, partners, whatever, can't we put our best foot forward?
