Chopped Mystery Basket Weirdest Ingredient Bracket Tournament — Vote in Round 2

by in Shows, April 17th, 2013

Chopped Mystery Basket Weirdest Ingredient Bracket Tournament Round 2Some 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, from April 10 to April 17, you voted on the 16 ingredients and narrowed them down to eight.

In Round 2, starting today, 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.

    The champion show from 4/21?? Have not yet seen dessert but the easiest ingredients ever. Unless something odd comes up next I dare say I could have competed. All the ingredients from the first 2 rounds complemented one another.

    Nothing odd about haggis. Don't know how that slipped past round 1. <_<

    Oh and I think this would make an interesting appetizer basket:

    Sardines, Peanut Butter, Red Raspberry Jam, Celery Soda

    Canned corned beef hash, canned french cut green beens and fresh kale and canned hominy grits!!!

    How about adding Gefilte Fish or Matjes herring as one of the basket items. Ptcha or beef kishke would be cool. If you don't know what these food items are, google it.

    Surströmming. Enough said

    Caught a rerun of an episode from a few years ago. The ingredients were unusual but not as wacky as they've gotten of late. There is a fine line between difficult baskets and ridiculous ones, and that line seems to have disappeared.
