Introduction: Herb Spiced Butter Nuggets
Butter Nuggets? Yes heard it right!
For a change to the regular spreading of butter on the bread, place the butter nuggets between the slices of bread or burger. It tastes unique and makes a delicious breakfast.
I have flavored the butter nuggets with Italian herb seasoning. You could use any flavor you like.
I have Deep fried the butter nuggets just as how we make the nuggets. For that maintaining the temperature of butter is necessary.
