Making KFC better with Brussels sprouts and avocado

There’s a short and long story to why I bought KFC tonight. The short version is I ran out of cash and making KFC better with Brussels sprouts seemed like a genius idea.

I won’t go into the long version because it involves explaining a lot of my thought processes today and no one really wants to know that. Anyway, we all know that KFC tastes great, we all know too that KFC isn’t the most healthful food to eat. To balance the meal I made finger licking good KFC better with Brussels sprouts and avocado. I posted the photograph to Instagram and on one account there was a comment on how dedicated I am to eat KFC off a plate

As much as I like a little original recipe KFC, I reckon this meal is an order of magnitude better with the extra Brussels sprouts, bacon and avocado.

How would you make KFC better?
