McNuggets with a New Dipping Sauce

McNuggets and cous

Same ol’ McNuggets, but with a couple of twists. When I grated the dry bread crumbs, I tossed in the dregs of a bag of tortilla chips, and then seasoned it a bit with Montreal Steak Seasoning, poultry seasoning, onion powder and smoked paprika.

I had spied a forgotten bag of cous cous in the freezer the other day, so dragged that out for the starch side dish. It is so super easy – just soak for a few minutes in boiling water – that I felt guilty not doing SOMEthing to make it more interesting. So I added roasted red peppers and some frozen spinach. It came out quite nicely, I thought.

Those are beets in the bowl. They were really good, but not terribly photogenic.

Now for the promised dipping sauce . . . that, too, was really easy and turned out way better than I had imagined. It is a blob of Cole slaw dressing and a spoonful of English marmalade – a very tasty combination of flavors that really made the McNuggets sing. I didn’t think of it at the time, but next time I think I will add a bit of ginger. I have a jar of grated ginger in the refrigerator that has yet to be opened, but that probably would have been the ideal place for it.

Somehow “yellow night” seems to come along quite often, but I really don’t plan it that way – hence the cornbread!

      The dipping sauce was surprisingly good. I am finding a lot of uses for Cole slaw dressing. Sometimes I even put it on shredded cabbage!

        that sounds great. Yesterday we went to a rural market in our farmhouse museum. There were a lot of market stalls and one was from a ranger. He sold some interesting sausages made out of game-meat, which we bought. I will try them over Easter with some sauerkraut and potatoes. Can you buy sauerkraut in US? I always put small pieces of bacon inside or some people even put small pieces of pineaple inside. 🙂

          Yes, sauerkraut is available here – in cans, and refrigerated in heavy plastic bags. I like Rueben sandwiches made with corned beef, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut on seeded rye toast, but Gary is not fond of sauerkraut, so I don’t often think of getting it when I am shopping. I should put it on my list and just get it one of these days. Your bacon addition sounds good. ;->

            Sauerkraut is very healthy, you can tell Gary. In former times we could buy sauerkraut fresh out of huge old wooden barrels like pickled cucumbers, too. When I was a school kid I bought for 10 cents some sauerkraut already. I loved it fresh. 🙂
            By the way we buy bacon here in pieces, not in slices, so that you can cut some little pieces out of it without fat.

    It all looks delicious! 🙂
