Sauce-Injected Nugget Is One Giant Leap for Mankind

It's a little sad that the shuttle program is coming to an end, but, on the bright side, we have no reason to fear human ingenuity is ending. Why? Just look at these syringe-pumped McNuggets. Our future is bright, humans.

McNuggets? Delicious. Dipping sauces? Delicious. The combination? My god! But the dipping process is sort of crude, no? I feel like a neanderthal dipping my fingers in the blood of a bludgeoned foe or something, not a 21st century fast food snacker. So what if the sauce was already inside the nugget? Yeah. Yeah.

J. Kenji Lopez-Alt over at Serious Eats accomplished just this with nothing but a syringe and a dream. The result? A McNugget with a pocket of goopy mana inside. The perfect piece of heavily processed meat in your mouth. Now, I wouldn't advise walking into McDonalds with a syringe, for a variety of social and legal reasons, but for home gorging, this seems like a fun trick. Just make sure to swap out a clean needle before your post-nugget heroin spree. [Serious Eats via Neatorama]
