There are many ways to cook something. Some people like their pasta cooked al dente while others like it boiled into mush.

After reading through a Reddit thread about foods that taste better a little burnt, we heard from lots of people who had all sorts of preferences for slight amounts of char, and some who like things to be like charcoal.

  • Asparagus in the oven get it real kind of nearly burned it's crispy and so good
  • Hashbrowns or home fries. So much better a little burnt and crispy than just cooked
  • Steak burnt on the outside, rare on the inside. Gotta get that sear
  • Tortilla's for burritos is good a little burnt. Like when you make them at home you can put them on the burner just to get that little burnt spot on it. Lol
  • I love Brussel sprouts slightly charred.

One thing I love slightly golden burnt is an omelet, or even scrambled eggs. I don't know if it's that I prefer the golden burning, or if I just like knowing that the eggs are cooked all the way through.
