Mom’s McDonald’s Chicken Nugget Freezing Hack Sparks Heated Debate

Mom’s McDonald’s Chicken Nugget Freezing Hack Sparks Heated Debate

After sharing the meal prep trick she employs to make sure her son always has food on hand, a mother has ignited a heated controversy.

She said that she freezes a batch of 80 McDonald’s chicken nuggets, which she can reheat whenever her child gets hungry.

Se Fordree, a South Carolina resident, used TikTok to share her contentious method of dinner preparation for her son, saying “it’s the only thing he’ll eat.”

She disclosed her method of bulk-storing the nuggets in a Ziploc bag in the freezer and then reheating the chicken pieces in the microwave as needed.

The odd technique caused a great deal of division among other social media users.

What are your thoughts? Se started the video, which has received over 1.1 million views so far, with the order in front of her: “I’m going to freeze 80 Chicken McNuggets that I just got from McDonald’s.”

My child exclusively eats these nuggets, which is why I purchase so many of them.

She gave an explanation of her procedures, saying, “I just put them all in the Ziploc.”

After tipping the boxes out into the plastic carriers that could be sealed, she said, “This is how they’re going to look.”

The devoted mother then squeezed the bag and gave advice, saying, “You’re going to wanna squeeze all the air out of them.”

After that, I store it in the fridge for a day.

“You put them in the refrigerator for one day because you want it to cool down before you put it in the freezer so they don’t stick together,” she said, pointing to the condensation that had formed inside the sealed bag.

After that, she also placed the paper bag from McDonald’s with the condiments inside the refrigerator to cool.

Later, she went back to get the bag of nuggets out of the freezer drawer.

“I just put them onto a plate and then microwave them,” she said, describing her method of reheating the chicken nuggets.

Usually, I work on ten of them at once.

“But you see how nice and loose they are,” she continued, holding out the bag after counting out her pieces.

They are not dependent on one another.

You should thus refrigerate them.

After placing the food in the microwave, she sets it for “one minute and thirty seconds on high.”

The video then switches to her small son eating one of the reheated nuggets after dipping it into the sauce.

‘They’re out of the microwave and now they’re ready to eat,’ Se says as he ends the video.

And other social media users didn’t take long to swarm the comment section, where parents were sharply divided among themselves.

Someone wrote, ‘You lost me with the microwave.’

One more person said, “Purchase the inexpensive ones at Walmart and store them in a McDonald’s container.”

A third person advised, “Ask them to buy a whole frozen bag from their freezer.”

‘When I was a kid I ate what mum made or didn’t eat at all,’ stated a fourth commentator, reflecting on their own upbringing.

“I did too, but my mum cooked a lot of meals for all of us because she knew we didn’t all like the same things,” Se replied.

A similar incident was shared by another commenter, who said, “I only ate what Mom cooked, or starved.”

“I’m sorry, but I don’t want that for my kids,” was his response.

My mother didn’t want that for us either.

Someone jokingly countered, “That’s real healthy,” to which Se responded defensively: He doesn’t always consume them.

Like you could have a favourite dish of your own, these are only his favourite nuggets.

‘If items are frozen when McDonald’s cooks them and you refreeze them, is that safe?’ inquired another worried parent.

The mother said, “To me, it’s like freezing fully cooked nuggets because they’re not fully cooked when McDonald’s cooks them.”

Se said that her son “likes it that way too, but he’s the type of person that also likes bacon limply” to the question, “Why not reheat in the oven or air fryer so that they can get crispy again?”Other parents praised the mother’s go-to preparation method despite the criticism she received.

Everything else doesn’t matter as long as your boy is eating.

Mama, you’re doing a great job,” said another.”

I appreciate you providing a secure environment where your child can eat anything he wants to,” another person remarked.

Fed is supreme!Those who judge others ought not be parents.

A third said, “I’ll buy anything to get my toddler to eat.”

‘Home cooked foods or leftovers brought home from a restaurant must be refrigerated within two hours.’

‘Any perishable foods, such as meat, poultry, eggs, side dishes, or casseroles, left at room temperature longer than two hours; one hour in room temperatures above 90°F,’ the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) told DailyMail.com.

Cooked food leftovers can last up to three or four days in the refrigerator.

You can reheat the leftovers to 165°F during this time.

To stay safe, make sure to put any leftovers back in the fridge within two hours.

Leftovers keep well in the refrigerator for three to four days after each reheating.

“Food loses quality when it is reheated, thus it is preferable to simply reheat what is necessary.

Foods that have been cooked and won’t be consumed in four days should be frozen for longer, safer storage.

Though they keep in the freezer for a long time, leftovers lose their greatest quality after a few months.
