12. Deep-fried Donut Bacon Cheeseburgers
It seems that fairs and festivals love to deep-fry just about anything and it should come as no surprise that chefs are now replacing burger buns with donuts. Krispy Kreme donuts have been a favorite to use over the years in American State Fairs to produce extraordinary burgers. At the Calgary Stampede in Canada this year they are deep-frying the donuts and making their own take on this burger. These glazed donuts are deep friend and stacked together with a burger patty, cheese and bacon in between. There is no room for lettuce or tomato in these melt in your mouth, drippy goodness burgers. The glazed donuts add a little bit of sweetness to this savory burger and create the ultimate heart stopping meal.
