Still dipping your McNuggets in sauce? That's so last week! The hot new trend in fast food cuisine is injecting sauce directly into McNuggets.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt of Serious Eats dared to push the culinary envelope:
There's not really much to say about this project that the pictures don't already explain much better. I opted for the Tangy Barbecue sauce not because I love the careful balance of herbs and spice or the gentle, tangy heat, or even its sweet kick, but because it was the only one that looked like it was a truly inject-able consistency. ...
And there you have it. McNuggets with the sauce built-in, and they tasted exactly like you'd think. Are there any real advantages to eating these over the traditional dip-and-pop method? Not really. But after downing a couple of'em, regular McNuggets just feel so... empty inside.
