I knew it was going to be a busy morning, with lots of chores to do. So I ran over to the grocery store to start the day right:. To get a dozen donutes - and a gallon of chocolate milk - because chocolate milk has vitamin D and protein. (Gotta keep the family healthy!) When I got to the counter, I didn't recognize the place. I don't know what happened during the night, but the normally normal baker went nuts.
Oreo covered donuts,
German chocolate donuts,
Peanut butter donuts,
"Everything" donuts with coconut, nuts, sprinkles etc.
The generic lineup was still there, but this new, eclectic batch had been added to the mix. And right in the middle, shining like a beacon in a dark night, was this: A bacon donut. A bacon beacon.
It was a regular raised donut with maple icing, topped with pieces of bacon. I had to get one, just because I'm a man.
Guess what? It worked. Somehow the bacon with the maple worked in the same way that pancakes and syrup work with a side of bacon. I liked it. My only criticism is that the bacon needed to be rendered down a little more for a better textural contrast. (So I watch "Chopped" - what of it?)
So there you go. Next time you see a bacon donut, know that it has been pre-approved by MMM.
