Chopped Mystery Basket Weirdest Ingredient Bracket Tournament — Vote in Round 1

by in Shows, April 10th, 2013

Chopped Bracket

Some of the mystery basket ingredients that get used on Chopped are pretty unusual, to say the least. But the culinary producers who come up with them don’t just draw them out of a hat — though sometimes it does seem that way! They take their time to decide on the ingredients, making sure the basket components are just right and actually manageable. FN Dish queried the culinary producers to find out the top 16 weirdest basket ingredients they’ve had on the show. The list of ingredients ranged from goat brains to gummy eggs over easy — almost no ingredient is off-limits.

Now it’s up to you, Chopped fans, to vote on the ingredient you think is the weirdest of them all in this four-round bracket tournament, which coincides with the new season of Chopped All-Stars.

Here’s how it works:

In Round 1, starting today, you get to vote on the 16 ingredients to narrow them down to eight.

In Round 2, starting next Wednesday, April 17, you’ll get to vote on the remaining eight ingredients to narrow them down to four.

In Round 3, starting Wednesday, April 24, you’ll get to vote on the remaining four ingredients to narrow them down to two.

And in Round 4, starting Wednesday, May 1, you’ll narrow down the final two, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday, May 8.

Vote below by selecting one ingredient from each group.

The polls have closed in the Chopped Mystery Basket Bracket. Find out the winner here.








Don’t forget to watch Chopped on Tuesdays at 10pm/9c and Chopped All-Stars on Sundays at 9pm/8c.

    How about taking something away from the kitchen… salt or sugar. Try cooking meals as if the Judges have health issues… I wonder what they use to spice up dishes instead of salt.
