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.

INGREDIENTS (yield 4 double stacked servings)

  • 4 Original Glazed Donuts from favorite store or restaurant  (sliced in half lengthwise)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups sweet onions (thinly sliced)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 8 (3 ounce) burger patties
  • 8 slices American cheese
  • 2 strips of bacon, cooked


  1. Separate doughnut halves and set aside.
  2. Over medium-low heat, combine olive oil and butter in a sauce pan.
  3. Add onions, season with salt and pepper, and cook for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add balsamic vinegar and cook for 20 minutes more.
  5. Cook each burger to desired temperature and top with cheese to melt.
  6. Place 2 patties on top of cut side of the doughnut, top with onions, bacon and lid of doughnut.
