The inside scoop on food in Los Angeles

Bacon and doughnuts and cheeseburgers -- oh, my!

Orlandokrispykremebaconchee Orlando was busy over the holidays dreaming up enlightened uses for bacon.  One of his creations was truly inspired.  Check it out.

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."

I can't believe this has caught on! This burger was first created by satirist Aaron McGruder in his cartoon "The Boondocks", as a comment on our egregious eating habits!

The Krispy Kreme Bacon Double Cheeseburger Delight!

I first read about this burger a few months ago and wound up writing a page about it at http://www.squidoo.com/krispykremeburger. I have yet, however, to correspond with anyone who has actually eaten one of these burgers.

You can find the recipe and more information about this delicious(?) horrendous(?) burger on my page. I'd love to hear your opinion of the burger.


Thanks Noelle, for the all of the bacon. Who would have thought that 18 posts about the same topic would become boring? Bye!
