Veggie Buffalo "wings"

ate.2015.08.21.d.jpg

These were good! MorningStar Farms Buffalo Chik'n Wings.

ate.2015.08.21.c1.jpg
According to the package, a serving is 5 nuggets. Here's what they looked like, still frozen.

ate.2015.08.21.c2.jpg
There are a few different ways to cook them listed on the package. The oven probably would have worked fine. But I decided to ignore the package directions and deep fry, which is much faster and, in my opinion, tastier. I deep fried them for 1:50 at 360°F from frozen. I checked for an internal temperature of 160°F.

There's a spicy Buffalo seasoning inside the nuggets, under the breading, by the way.

I served it with veggie Ranch dip with celery, cucumber and green pepper.

And a side salad with lettuce mix, spinach, cucumber, celery, green pepper and tomato, with Annie's cowgirl ranch dressing.

This was good!
