What's in Your Ultimate Chopped Basket?

Three rounds, three different baskets and 12 out-of-this-world ingredients. Whether it's Chopped Champions, All-Stars or regular-season episodes, that's a lot of combinations to come up with.

So we're asking this question: What would be included in your ultimate Chopped basket? Not something you'd want to receive, but something you'd give to a fellow competitor. Would there be two proteins? All sweets? Would you include one or two ingredients they've probably never heard of? It can be argued that the simplest ingredients like eggs, chicken, pasta and rice are sometimes the hardest.

Tell us what you'd choose in the comments below.
