SNACKS WITH BITE

This seems like as good a time as any to note that the Easy Bake oven isn't just for cakes and cookies. It's perfect for after-school snacks, made with love!

Today, I'd like to spice things up with some kicky Buffalo chicken nuggets. Doesn't that sound magnificent?! Why serve up dry crackers or a boring apple after school when you can whip up a warm, zesty snack for your little darlings? For this recipe, you should really use the refrigerated nuggets. Because after all, we don't need to wait all afternoon for frozen nuggets to cook. You'll spoil your dinner! The refrigerated variety will allow you to fix a tasty snack in a jiffy.

For the Buffalo chicken nuggets, you will need:

  • Refrigerated chicken nuggets
  • Texas Pete, or other hot wing sauce
  • Side of celery strips
  • Side of ranch or clue cheese dressing

Preheat the oven for 15 minutes. Spray a pan with cooking oil and lay out your nuggets. Brush with wing sauce. Bake for 15 minutes, then move the pan to the cooling chamber while you heat another batch of nuggets.

Nuggets are delish with ranch or blue cheese dip. Eat a celery strip if you need to cool your mouth from the spicy wing sauce!

That's Easy Baking!

Love, Cookie B.

That looks good! I'm excited to think I can cook as many as three or four individual nuggets in a batch. Each of the kids can enjoy one while we wait for the next batch to cook!

Cookie you are an innovator and an inspiration, I never dreamed such savory delights were possible with an EBO. You've opened my eyes ... and made me hungry. Pass the hot sauce you spicy gal, you!

Deborah--All good things come to those who wait. That's my motto!

Diva--Always glad to help out a fellow chef. I was thinking of you and "South Beach" when I made the nuggets. Thanks for stopping by!
