I’m not trying to brag, but just recently I successfully breaded a Burger King Whopper in chicken nuggets and deep fried it….
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….
The Chicken Nugget Breaded Burger King Whopper Recipe
- 2 quarts oil for frying
- 1/2 cup flour
- 3/4 cup beer

Combine flour and beer and mix until smooth.
Line the bottom of a bowl with plastic wrap and place the Whopper on top of it.
Pour batter over the Whopper, press the chicken nuggets into the batter and wrap the whole thing up in plastic wrap.
Wrap aluminum foil around the entire thing and place in your freezer for 2 hours or until completely frozen.
Heat oil in deep fryer or heavy skillet to 375°F.
Unwrap the Chicken Nugget Breaded Whopper and deep fry for 6 minutes or until golden brown.

what kind of beer works best for this? don’t tell me it’s light beer.

Hahaha, light beer is actually what mostly gets used in beer batter, just because if you use a super flavorful beer it can take away from the taste of whatever it is that you’re actually beer battering.

You’re pathetic. Stupid, misogynist backlash bullshit.
Going luck with your heart attack (s).

While it’s quite likely that I will indeed have a heart attack sometime in the near future I still fail to see how breading a Whopper in chicken nuggets and deep frying it makes me a misogynist….

I’m a woman. Please don’t listen to this PC weirdo. She probably called you misogynist because your site is called DudeFoods–because apparently these days, identifying as a dude is an insult in itself. I stop by regularly to see what crazy things you’ve come up with, but I have to say the site is aptly named, because as a woman, I don’t ever see myself trying to eat any of it, lol. Good luck with everything, and keep up with those angiograms!
