This actually happened.
Sue has been dying to try this sweet-savory combination ever since we saw it on tv forever ago.
I would just like to state something before we go any further here.
We are aware that this is not healthy.
In fact, we are aware that this is probably in the running for the most unhealthy thing on the planet. There is no need to scold us, okay?
We get it.
We're not going to eat this everyday.
Not that we don't want to eat it every day....this is crazy good. Each bite is a taste explosion of sweet - savory - cheesy - bacon-ness.
You need this in your face.
Donut Bacon Cheeseburger
donuts, cut in half horizontally
(We used Krispy Kreme glazed donuts)
lean ground beef
onion, finely diced
salt & pepper
aged cheddar cheese, sliced
Monterey Jack cheese, Sliced
Make up your burger patties by mixing the lean ground beef, onions, garlic, and salt & pepper. (Adjust measurements to suit the amount of burgers you are making - ex: 1 lb beef, 1/2 onion, 2 or 3 cloves garlic makes 4 - 1/4 lb burgers)
Form into patties and cook on a grill, in the oven, or in a frying pan until desired level of done-ness is achieved.
Prepare burgers - For each burger you will need 1 donut, cut in half, 1 burger patty, cooked, and at least 2 slices of your favorite cheese and 2 slices of bacon, cooked.
Layer the burger as such - bottom of donut, burger patty, cheese slices, bacon, top of donut. (DON'T put any ketchup or mustard or BBQ sauce on it - it will overpower the other flavors!)
Eat and enjoy!!
You can see Sue was pretty excited to taste this. Eating a Donut Burger was actually on her bucket list.
You definitely have to actually taste one to be able to understand it. The whole sweet and savory thing is pretty amazing.
If you are looking for something fun and different to try then definitely give this a try.
