  • If your preparing the nuggets to be consumed the same day, make sure you freeze them for at least 30 minutes before cooking them.
  • You can add some grated cheese in there .
  • You can freeze the nuggets as long as a month or so , but I would suggest as there are no preservatives here , try to consume them soon and make fresh batches for like 2 weeks .
