Servings 2 sandwiches


  • 2 large glazed donuts (day-old works best)
  • 2 slices American cheese
  • 4 slices crispy, cooked bacon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  • Heat the pan or griddle to medium-low heat (the donuts are thick and sugary, so you don't want to burn them).
  • Carefully slice both donuts in half with a bread knife- like you are slicing a bagel. Using a pastry brush, evenly spread melted butter on the inside of each donut slice. Place the buttered sides down on the griddle. Put one slice of American cheese on two of the donut halves. Place a lid on the pan to help trap the heat and melt the cheese.
  • Remove the lid and flip the two donut pieces that do not have cheese so that the outside of the donut is face-down on the grill. Add the bacon on top of the cheese. Then, using a spatula, take the half with no cheese and place it on top of the cheese-covered half, the inside grilled part of the donut facing up.
  • Use a spatula to remove the sandwich from the griddle carefully. The caramelized sugar will be hot, so don't burn yourself!
  • Let cool for a couple minutes, then carefully slice in half with a bread knife. Eat immediately!
