In honor of National Donut Day, we’re bringing an extra special sweet & savory treat to you! One of my favorite dishes from WinterFest was the Donut Burger at Blitzen’s Burgers. It’s the perfect combo that melts in your mouth with a burger patty, cheese and bacon served on a glazed donut.

This simple treat is a great way to celebrate National Donut Day for dinner.
