YANBU. I love my asparagus roasted to death.

I hate insipid flabby undercooked bacon.
I want it cremated.

TheQueef with burnt salty bits

Crispy cheeseshock

Macaroni or cauliflower cheese. Best bits are always the burnt edges.
YABVVVU r.e brocalli though.

Lamb and duck, can't stand either of them "pink".

Bluntness100 Tue 26-Mar-19 14:08:29

Totally, I quite like my veggies a bit soggy, bacon needs to be done to a crisp as does anything cheesy,,,🤣

Kedgeree Tue 26-Mar-19 14:08:51

Toast. Warmed bread is not toast.

Potatoes. Can't stand hard potatoes. Give me a cooked to death jacket spud over a just cooked one any day!

Scrambled eggs - I make mine bouncy. DH likes them sloppy <boak>.

Haha I thought I probably was; reminds me of that quote from Zadie Smith's White teeth:

"“Where I come from," said Archie, "a bloke likes to get to know a girl before he marries her."
"Where you come from it is customary to boil vegetables until they fall apart. This does not mean," said Samad tersely, "that it is a good idea.” "

Before even clicking on this thread I was thinking broccoli ha.

The almost burned bits of cakes are lovely.

TheQueef Tue 26-Mar-19 14:11:54

Bubble and squeak.
I micro mine to steaming hot before frying just so I get the crust on the bottom. Anything else is just mash and veg.

BaronessBomburst Tue 26-Mar-19 14:14:27

Crumpets have to have a hard, crunchy top and a squidgy middle, and so much butter that it runs everyehere when you bite them.

Crockof Tue 26-Mar-19 14:16:42

Agree! Esp crumpets, broccoli and bacon

Toast is tricky... Agree not warmed bread yuk but also not burnt

GoldenHour Tue 26-Mar-19 14:18:05

Broccoli cheese bake with bacon bits, obliterate the lot 🤤

I second the almost burnt parts of cake. DM used to make cakes as a sideline whilst we were young and if she ever over cooked one it went to DB & I. Love overcooked cake!!

BlooperReel Tue 26-Mar-19 14:21:09

Yes! Brussel sprouts I roast in the oven with bacon bits and butter, when they have smoky black bits on top they are done grin

Potato wedges, need to be a bit crispy for me.
Bacon - the fat needs to be crisp.
Steak - I get called a heathen but cannot abide too much pink.
Cauliflower cheese - best when a bit crispy on top.

Yes to Brussels sprouts. Actually make that all roasted veg.
