Brain FoodEdit

Tailgate Brain Poppers

  • Liv chops the brain into nugget-like pieces, she pours several glugs of canola oil into a fryer. In a medium sized bowl, she mixes flour and chili pepper. She coats the pieces in the mixture and deep fries the batch. She then pours different hot sauces on the fried pieces, she mixes them around in the bowl to get them evenly covered and toasts them in a toaster oven — all to the sound of the "Monday Night Football Theme."
