Bacon and doughnuts and cheeseburgers -- oh, my!
This, my friends, is a bacon-doughnut-cheeseburger.
Yup! A cheeseburger topped with crisp slices of bacon, sandwiched between a sliced Krispy Kreme doughnut. It's not the first time I've seen the bacon/doughnut pairing; bacon doughnuts are specialties at places including Nickel Diner in downtown Los Angeles, Dynamo Donut & Coffee in San Francisco and Voodoo Donuts up in Portland, Ore. But it is the first time I've seen the combination with a cheeseburger. (I especially like the composition of the burger: the glazed outer halves of the doughnut face inward toward the burger, keeping the fingers clean while the creation is shamelessly devoured. Very, very thoughtful.)
Well done, Orlando! You've earned number No. 19 on my list of "1,001 things to do with bacon."
