I want a chicken
finger-food the size of your thumb. Can you do
it? said McDonalds Chairman Fred Turner
to one of his suppliers in 1979. This request set in
motion the invention of the McNugget, a small piece
of reconstituted chicken that is held together by stabilizers,
breaded, fried, refrozen, and then reheated. Introduced
nationwide in 1983, Chicken McNuggets quickly made
McDonalds the second largest purchaser of chicken

The McNuggetBurger is not very complicated.
It lacks the originality of something like the Fry Dog, but
it is a necessary building block upon which other
creations will come. Just as it is unwise to build a
house without a foundation, it is unwise to have Fast Food
Fever without The McNugget Burger.
We begin this creation with a disclaimer: We
do not reccommend anyone under five attempt this creation,
as there *is* a small choking hazard with the nuggets. If
you attempt this creation at another fast food chain,
as was once written on the side of a Natural Light beer
can, your results may vary in consistency, color, and
The foundation to most fast food meals
is the cheeseburger. It has seen many incarnations over the
years, and has remained a popular favorite. The introduction
of the McNugget in 1983 was nothing short of a revolution.
The chicken nugget, in its myriad forms, is now a mainstay
of any fast food chain, and often on the "kids" menu
at more *respectable* restaraunts.
Fast Food Fever brings both these classic
foods together in a tasty treat that will leave you asking
PEPTO THAT IS!
