'doughnuts' on Serious Eats

Beignets

For folks outside of New Orleans, the square, fried fritters which are covered (perhaps buried) in powdered sugar are probably most closely associated with the French Quarter's famed Cafe Du Monde, a coffee shop established back in 1862. More

Cadbury Creme Scrambled Eggs

The taste of the eggs is not exceptional on its own (it tastes like a Creme Egg melted in butter and cream), but it's rather good when put on top of "potatoes" made from diced day-old doughnuts fried in butter and "toast with jam" made of poundcake. More

Mini Maple Spam Doughnuts

Like so many guilty-pleasure treats, Mini Maple Spam Doughnuts taste way better than they really ought to. The lightly crunchy, sweet doughnut exterior is contrasted by the crisp, crackly fried pork; finished with a creamy, maple-infused frosting and crunchy SPAM bits on top, it makes for a veritable sea of contrasting sweet and salty flavors and textures, and for an overall wholly enjoyable holey treat.

Maple Bacon Long Johns

When it comes to prepping the doughnuts, Long Johns are a snap. After the first rise, just roll out the dough into a large rectangle and cut out the bars. Alas, the lack of scraps means no doughnut holes, but for dunkers, the shape of the Long Johns is ideal. More

Doughnut Soup

This creamy, dreamy dish is the ultimate in doughnut decadence. It starts by caramelizing glazed doughnut in a buttery bath, then mixing it with milk and heating the mixture until the flavors merge beautifully in a hot, sweet, very creamy broth. It's my easy-to-prepare take on a dessert served at Chicago's MOTO, a restaurant revered in the world of molecular gastronomy. More

Gluten-Free Doughnut Bites

Inspired by Dunkin Donuts' Munchkins, these doughnut bites are actually cake doughnuts instead of the traditional yeast-raised doughnuts. You can squeeze a little jam into the finished doughnut holes. Especially great if you're celebrating a gluten-free Hanukkah! More
