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!

How to Make Sweet Bacon Explosion


  • 1Place doghnuts on a cookie sheet and put them in the freezer to stiffen up. About 30 minutes or less.
  • 2In a deep pot ( I use a cast iron dutch oven), preheat peanut oil to 350 degrees.
  • 3Remove 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.
  • 4Fry until the bacon is cooked and almost mahogany in color. Remove and let cool on a rack placed over paper towels.
  • 5Once cool enough to handle, use a syringe to fill them with the pepper jelly. Garnish by sprinkling with powdered sugar.
