Hawaiian Bacon Donuts: A match made in heaven
Now we've all heard of Hawaiian pizza — the '60s invention exquisitely marries traditional savory flavors with sweetness from the fresh pineapple and a salty kick from the cured bacon or ham. But have you ever come across a Hawaiian donut before? Well, prepare to be amazed as this tasty treat also combines sweet and savory in perfect harmony. Go nuts for donuts!
You'll need (for 5 portions):
- 1 yellow onion
- 5 pineapple rings
- 5 slices of Edam cheese
- 25 slices of bacon
- 2 tbsp barbecue sauce
- Cut five large rings from the onion. Then make the holes in the pineapple rings larger using a knife. Use the pineapple rings as stencils to cut the slices of cheese into rings. Now add the onion rings for that crowning touch.
- Wrap each ring with five slices of bacon. Fry them in a pan and spread barbecue sauce on them.
- To finish, bake the rings at 320°F for 10 minutes in the oven.
Oh wow, those are some tasty donuts! With crispy bacon on the outside concealing the succulent pineapple underneath, it really is a heavenly combination of tastes and textures. Just be sure to make enough for all!
