When I went hog wild at a recent family party, I made some terrible food decisions (and suffered from some terrible results)

Of the following items, which do you think were the worst of the worst?

(My suspicion is the brisket, but what do you think?)

2 sandwich rolls,
brisket,
swiss cheese
potato pancake,
sour cream,
brownies,
cookies
Hershey kisses,
milk chocolate coins

In an ideal world, I won't ever make bade decisions, but it's always best to avoid the worst of the worst.

Thanks for your vote,

Mike

For me it would be (starting with the worst):
1. Brisket
2. Sour cream (assuming it wasn't a safe brand)
3. Sandwich rolls
4. Potato pancakes
5. Brownies and cookies
6. Kisses and coins

My son has been reacting to the cumulative amounts of malted barley flour that is in everything lately. So after brisket I would put baked goods.

Also, you need to consider two things. First, aluminum will make FGA more toxic and is in most commercial baking powders. Second, eating a lot of sugar and then having a blood sugar crash increases toxicity as well...so my guess would be that most of the FGA came from the brisket but the reaction came from complicating factors as well.

What is it about the brisket?

Is it the slow-cooked-ness, or likelihood of it being seasoned?

BTW, my other choice of entree for that event was a chicken thing in white sauce.

I once had a violent reaction to a chicken alfredo sauce dish, which I later learned had monosodium glutamate, so I instinctively avoided the chicken in white sauce.

I put brisket at the top of the list because of the seasonings that would most likely be added. I have to be really careful on where I buy my meats as well so that is a factor as well.
