Doughnut Burgers with Candied Bacon

Servings 4 servings


For the candied bacon:

  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • For the burgers:
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 4 glazed doughnuts cut in half like a burger bun


  1. To make the candied bacon, preheat oven to 350F. Place bacon in a single layer on a foil lined sheet. Sprinkle brown sugar on top of bacon strips. Bake for 18-25 minutes or until crispy, making sure to turn bacon over after 10 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack for cooling.
  2. To make the burgers, divide ground chuck into 4 portions, shape into burger patties, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill to desired doneness, putting cheese on top to melt shortly before removing them.
  4. Top each split doughnut with a cheesy burger and 2 slices of candied bacon, torn in half.
