Nuggets do not have to be deep fried. We like coming up with creative and healthier ways of making foods that are normally fried. We took a pork tenderloin and cut it up into nugget sized pieces. First we rolled the pieces in flour, second we dipped the pieces in a beaten egg and finally we rolled the pieces in panko. Panko is a type of bread crumb used in Japanese cuisine as a crunchy coating for fried foods. Sometimes, instead of using panko, we crush potato chips and toasted bread together. Miss Vicky chips work really well and add a lot of flavour (and calories if you add too much).We baked the nuggets in the oven for 25 minutes without turning them and broiled them for the last 3 minutes.
This way we know exactly what the nugget is made of instead of "mechanically separated" meat. I don't even know what that is, nor do I want to find out.
