On a previous Meat Adventure to Oregon, we stopped at Voodoo Doughnuts and had a bacon maple bar. Ever since that Homer Simpson moment, maple doughnuts have been on my mind. Today, Bacon doughnuts with a Chilebrown twist will be created.. These pillows of fried sweet dough will have bacon and apples in the center. They will be frosted with a maple frosting and garnished with of course more bacon. Today's bacon comes from Swingle Meats located in Jackson, California. Before we start cooking, I will leave you with a quote from Homer Simpson,
Homer: Are you saying you're never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?
Homer: Pork chops?
Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal.
Homer: Heh heh heh. Ooh, yeah, right, Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.
Apple, Bacon Doughnuts
- 4 cups of flour
- 1 tablespoon dry yeast
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 1.2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs beaten
- 3/4 stick butter softened
- 2 apples peeled, cored and cubed
- 3 strips bacon cooked and cubed
Heat milk and add sugar. Add yeast to mixture and proof for 5 minuets. Add rest of ingredients except bacon and apples. Knead for 5 minutes. Add bacon and apples and knead to incorporate. Let rise for 2 1/2 hours. Roll out dough mixture and cut into doughnut shapes. Let rise for 45 more minutes. Heat up some vegetable oil to 375 degrees. Fry your dough for aprox 1 minute on each side or until golden brown.
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine and stir ingredients till smooth. Drizzle over the warm doughnuts and garnish with bacon. I think Homer Simpson would be proud of me. "MMMMMMMMMM DOUGHNUTS!"

One of my favorite parts is the bacon on top, you can just pick off a good hunk and eat it!
