I thought it’d be interesting to actually eat a bacon doughnut rather than just talk about them. What follows is a documentation of my experiences doing it.
Because I don’t live anywhere bacon doughnuts can be easily found pre-made, I had to make one myself. The first thing I did was get some bacon and prepare it for the microwave:
While cooking the bacon on HIGH for 2.5 minutes, I prepared a maple doughnut purchased at the supermarket:
I purchased a few other doughnuts for later consumption with bacon. Once the bacon was done cooking, I took it out of the microwave:
I’ll admit that the bacon here is a little overcooked; next time, I’ll cook it for two minutes and check the doneness. Next thing was to put a half-slice of bacon on the doughnut and cook it in the microwave for approximately 15 seconds to fuse the two together and keep the bacon from hopping off:
After that, there was nothing to do but take a bite. It was very tasty: the sweetness of the maple frosting on the doughnut played nicely against the saltiness of the bacon, and the crisp crunch of the bacon added a nice texture to the soft dough of the pastry:
The next experiment will deal with a differently-flavored doughnut and more bacon. Nevertheless, I was encouraged by the gustatory experience such that I ate the rest in short order:
So, bacon doughnuts exist. They taste good. I will eat further bacon doughnuts.
