Expert Tips

If you want, you can prepare the nuggets a day before and then fry them right before eating.

Directions

  • 1 Put the puree, brown sugar, sage, salt, pepper, 1 cup of breadcrumbs and 1 egg into a medium bowl, and mix. Put this in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  • 2 Divide the mixture into 14 parts. Using your hands, shape the nuggets into cylinders. Put them on a tray or on a big dish and put this in the fridge for another 30 minutes.
  • 3 Heat enough oil in a pan over medium heat until it gets to 350ºF.
  • 4 Cover the nuggets with beaten eggs and then with breadcrumbs. Fry the nuggets until they’re golden everywhere. This should take around 2-3 minutes. Then, place them on a dish with absorbent paper.
  • 5 Serve the nuggets hot.
