I did something similar recently when I breaded a McDonald’s Big Mac in French fries, but in that instance I just poured batter over the Big Mac, stuck a bunch of fries to it and dropped it straight into my deep fryer.
Due to the weight of the chicken nuggets however, that clearly wasn’t going to work in this case, so this time I poured batter over the Whopper, stuck the chicken nuggets into the batter, wrapped everything in plastic wrap and froze it before deep frying it, which I’m happy to report worked like a charm!
Also, going back to the chicken nuggets from Burger King for a second, is there a better fast food deal out there than the $1.69 they charge for 10 nuggets? Hell no! Wendy’s still has the best tasting chicken nuggets in the game, but you can’t go wrong with the price of Burger King’s.
For as amazing as my Chicken Nugget Breaded Whopper tasted though I’ve gotta admit that I felt a little disgusted with myself after eating it. I talked about this briefly on episode 23 of the Dude Foods Podcast, but it sort of reminded me of the time I ate deep fried butter at the Wisconsin State Fair — it was good, but I was still ashamed to admit that I actually liked it.
Eating a Whopper and 20 chicken nuggets on their own is nothing out of the norm for me, but combined into a single entity — plus the addition of all the extra breading from the batter I used to make sure the nuggets stuck to the Whopper — this one was just a bit over the top, even for me….
