Bacon-Fried Doughnuts By Oh Bite It Will Make You Think Anything In This World Is Delicious And Possible

Well, something called “National Doughnut Day" came upon us last week, and out of all the fun food days to be celebrated, I think this one is my FAVE!  Not just because it’s doughnuts, and it’s an entire day… and, um... it’s doughnuts, but because I can’t think of a better little treat to dedicate a day to! ... And it’s doughnuts!! A day when we can eat them with no shame, no fear, no boundaries! And that’s where I come in with these bacon-fried doughnuts. I mean, did you really think I wouldn’t do this? Is anyone surprised?! Probably not!

I knew that the delicious doughnut could stand up to the all-mighty bacon in the best and most mid-blowing way ever. I mean, seriously — just look at this beauty! You can almost feel the deliciousness between your lips!

One bite of these sticky, smoky, sweet, delicious disks of heaven, and you'll see for yourself. I don't think there has ever been such a perfect pair of culinary creations... at least not that I've tried. Each doughnut is snuggled tight with crispy fried bacon that literally self-glazes as it's fried, gloriously gluing itself to each and every moist, sweet bite of this doughnut. They melt in your mouth in the chewiest way ever, if that makes any sense. Actually, this can't make sense — just eat them, and don't try to understand them. Trust me. There's nothing like these at all. Your lips will never be the same.

What You'll Need:

  • Glazed doughnuts
  • Thin sliced maple bacon (about four slices per doughnut)
  • Oil for frying (I used canola)
  • Toothpicks

Directions:

Are you ready for the easiest recipe ever? Simply wrap each doughnut with the bacon slices, and secure the end with a toothpick. 

Fry them up in about two inches of hot (350 degree) oil until the bacon is golden and crispy. Let them cool for a minute and they will firm up, but definitely eat them warm, because... warm and gooey mouth heaven. And if you're feeling generous, try to share at least one. It won't be easy! If you can't share, then eat them all before anyone knows about them. You won't be able to resist, so just go for it.
