Sweet Bacon Explosion

Dennis Butterworth


No one that eats this can decide if it is a dessert or an appetizer. All they know is, it is simply amazing! Once you bite into the bacon, you'll get the sweet aroma of the donut filling your nose right about the time the sweet and spicy pepper jelly hits the back of your throat!

  • 6
    doghnuts (your favorite kind)
  • 1 lb
    bacon (not thick cut)
  • 1 jar(s)
    pepper jelly (any flavor, i like pineapple habanero)
  • 1/4 c
    powdered sugar for garnish

How to Make Sweet Bacon Explosion


  1. Place doghnuts on a cookie sheet and put them in the freezer to stiffen up. About 30 minutes or less.
  2. In a deep pot ( I use a cast iron dutch oven), preheat peanut oil to 350 degrees.
  3. Remove doghnuts from freezer and wrap each one with a slice of bacon. The bacon should be wrapped evenly and not overlap to ensure propper doneness. Use toothpicks to secure the bacon to the doughnut.
  4. Fry until the bacon is cooked and almost mahogany in color. Remove and let cool on a rack placed over paper towels.
  5. Once cool enough to handle, use a syringe to fill them with the pepper jelly. Garnish by sprinkling with powdered sugar.
