Due to another previous question it seems as if there is a small debate on brownie edges. So what do you prefer? The crispy edge on a brownie or the middle pieces? Me-I am middle piece girl.

I prefer the crunchy edge with a nice COLD glass of milk!

Good question, AuntE, I like a soft gooey piece from the inside, but if it's a savory casserole type thing like a lasagna, I like a crispy corner. Go figure!

I prefer the ones that have both!

That is great Saveur. I have to say I do like crispy edges when it comes to a dish like mac and cheese. And Bibi-good answer. Are you fairly neutral with most things in life too? Yes a brownie question can predict ones character. Hee

I love the edges, but you have to have a little of the gooey to appreciate the edges and vice versa! Have you seen the "only edges" brownie pan? It's on my wish list!

I'm an outer edge girl. In fact, for my birthday the one year my DH bought me the Bakers Edge Brownie Pan. I love it, an edge with every piece. ~ ~

I prefer the edges, but would not turn down a middle piece. I think my all time favorite dessert is a brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. So simple and so good. What is it about brownies?
Mar. 27, 2013 5:07 am
Excellent question. My entire family prefers the center pieces. I wish there were at least one person in the house that enjoyed the edges.

I'm with savvy...onlt like middle pieces of cakes/brownies/bars, but LOVE the end pieces of casseroles.
Mar. 27, 2013 5:20 am
give me any piece you want, but don't ruin it with any frosting :)
Mar. 27, 2013 5:20 am
I am like everyone else above. I love brownies and casseroles!
Mar. 27, 2013 5:20 am
Middle. As a matter of fact, I'll cut a thin edge off all the way around & toss it. I do the same w/my egg casseroles.
Mar. 27, 2013 5:24 am
lisa, send those to me. They would be great as a bed for a scoop of ice cream and some hot fudge sauce :)

Middle definitely.

I'll eat either as long as it's a great brownie.
Mar. 27, 2013 5:53 am
Everyone in my house likes the middle. I always have to throw away the entire outside of brownies because nobody will touch them. I do prefer the outer edges of casseroles though.

Oh, poor little edges getting thrown away. They're so good crumbled up and eaten with ice cream.

I'll take the edges just like IP, crumbled up with ice cream! But the gooey middle is nice too. Heck I'll eat any kind of brownie!

We all prefer the middle. I cut off the edges and my DH puts ice cream on the crumbs and tops with fudge sauce & nuts.
Mar. 27, 2013 12:52 pm
DH & I are well matched. He likes the edges, I like the middle. Together we manage to eat a pan of brownies pretty fast.

If you're making, I'll eat it. With a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee. Middle or edge. I appreciate the beauty of all brownies.
Mar. 27, 2013 6:36 am
Please send all brownie edges to me. And the edges of lasagna and mac/cheese. TIA :o) :o) :o)
Mar. 27, 2013 7:03 am
I always cut the edges off and save hide and save them for ME! I love the crunchy/chewy texture :)
Mar. 27, 2013 8:24 am
I'm an equal opportunity kind of gal!
Mar. 27, 2013 8:36 am
I prefer middle part of the brownie, but that doesn't stop me from eating every crumb.
Mar. 27, 2013 9:45 am
Anyone wanting to get rid of their crispy edges can send them to me at 916 Poppy Circle........LOL. I'll be waiting by the mailbox!
Mar. 27, 2013 1:49 pm
I like mine from the middle, but tend to eat the crusty hard edges while trimming them off LOL! If I am making to take somewhere. If just for here, they all all a little crusty edge with the soft middle parts.

Brownies are yummy either way. Do most people prefer them with walnuts or plain?
