Donut Burgers, Again

DonutBurgersThis is a fun little recipe I came up with for Easter Brunch that was such a hit, I’m planning to bust it out again for New Year’s morning.  I’m thinking they’ll go quite nicely with some fresh eggs from the Ladybirds, and something a little bubbly to drink (perhaps a pretty pink Kir Royale?  My new favorite cocktail!)

To make 30 donut burgers, you’ll need:

-30 glazed donut holes

-2 lbs ground sausage meat

It’s overwhelming, I know.

Form the sausage into little balls (about the size of a ‘super ball’–you know, the kind you used to get out of the machine at the supermarket?) and then flatten it into little patties and cook them in a pan until they are done to your liking.  Let them cool a bit on a paper towel to drain, and then gently slice your donut holes in half.  Build your burgers, people!  Of course, I recommend trimming them out in some festive ribbon-adorned toothpicks, but maybe that’s just me!

    I am about to put you on my Evil Temptress list.

    Thank heaven for your generous Ladybirds who provide a little more protein to the mix which should get a diabetic such as myself through the combination of donut and alcohol.

    Yes, the protein and fat would save my blood sugar and now I HAVE to try this. It isn’t all that far off the mark from what my sister and I discovered we both, unknowingly, had been indulging in secretly for years. That would be sausage biscuits with grape jelly…yum!! This one has GOT to be passed on to my siblings!!
