Introduction: Herb Spiced Butter Nuggets

About: A Software Engineer. I love learning new things. Hooked up with Instructables. It is the biggest find I ever made. :D Cooking and Crochet are my passion. I love to learn different techniques and cuisines.

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.

Step 1: Ingredients

Total Time - 1 hour

Quantity - 6 Nuggets


Unsalted Butter - 1/2 Cup

Salt - pinch

pepper - 1/2 Tsp

All-purpose flour - 1/2 Cup

Egg - 1

Bread crumbs - 1/2 Cup

Italian Seasoning/ Dried Oregano - 1 Tsp

Vegetable Oil - 1 Cup (for deep frying)

Step 2: Soften Butter

Soften the butter with a hand mixer.

Add pepper, salt, onion (optional) and Italian seasoning/ Dried Oregano.

Blend them well.

Step 3: Freeze

Form 1-inch balls of butter mixture and arrange them on a parchment or a non-stick pan.

Freeze until solid.

Step 4: Prepare for Deep Fry

Take a bread slice in a mixer. Form the bread crumbs out of it.

Similarly beat an egg. Add salt to the egg.

So keep everything ready near when you are frying.

Have the bread crumbs, All purpose flour and beaten egg nearby.

Step 5: Dip

Take the butter balls out of the freezer.

Freeze until solid.

Coat the frozen balls in flour and then in the egg,

Step 6: Coat

Next coat it in bread crumbs. Freeze it again until solid.

Step 7: Deep Fry

Heat the oil at high flame. The oil should be real hot that the coating browns within seconds.

We do not want the inner butter to melt.

When few bubbles are seen at the surface of the oil add the coated butter nuggets.

The bread crumbs browns within seconds. Fry each of them just for 10 seconds.

Place them on tissue to remove the excess oil.

Step 8: Enjoy Breakfast

Spreading butter on the bread slices have been our daily breakfast.

How about having butter nuggets between slices of bread for a change. It tastes really good and unique.

Place them between two slices of bread. Add you favorite topping of sauce.

    You could replace egg with a batter of All purpose flour, salt and water.

    Vegetarian Alternative:

    All purpose flour - 1/2 Cup

    Water - 2 Tbsp (thick consistency so that it coats the butter balls)

    Salt - pinch

    Baking soda - 1 Tsp

    Dip the nuggets in the batter you made and then in bread crumbs. Now it is ready to be fried.
