Ok...let me take a moment to explain myself here. See, over the past couple months or so I have managed to somehow lose 10 pounds. "Wow, that's awesome!" you say. No. No it is not. I didn't want to lose 10 lbs. I have no idea where it went, or why it went away, but I want it back. I feel all weak and tired most of the day, and it definitely has something to do with my missing pounds.
So I took to the web, surfing Pinterest for fatty foods that would be heavy on calories. As soon as I saw this, I knew I needed to make it. What better time to try this then when you're trying to GAIN weight?! I almost didn't bother with pictures and a post, but then I thought 'Hey, if Miss Paula Deen can put this recipe on TV and share it with the world, then I can post it here. SOMEONE is bound to find this appealing!'. So here it is. (Though the recipe I saw was for burgers. I changed it to breakfast)
Gotta be honest with you guys though. Will I ever make this again? No. Definitely not. I've never been a huge Krispy Kreme fan (D&D all the way!), but mainly, it just felt wrong. I am NOT a health food nut...my love for Whooper Jr.'s runs deep, but this...this just felt...sleazy. I have no idea why. I was curious so I pulled up the nutritional info...all together this has 496 calories. I've inhaled more calories than that just sitting in the drive-thru line at Hardee's! 496 isn't terrible! But still...it just felt wrong.
Anyway! Try it if you want, don't try it if you don't want to, just don't send me bitchy messages about how I'm contributing to the downfall of society. You can send them all to Paula Deen...it's her recipe ;)~
'Krispy Kreme Breakfast Sandwich'
Source: Paula Deen
1 Krispy Kreme donut
1 slice of American cheese
2 slices of bacon
1. Fry bacon on stove top till crisp and set aside (I used the pre-cooked bacon which I just heated up in the microwave)
2. Spray two small pans with cooking spray and heat on medium heat. Crack an egg into one pan and cover, cooking for 3-4 minutes.
3. Slice donut in half and place cut side down in the other pan for 2-3 minutes...just enough to brown the bottoms.
4. Remove bottom of donut to a plate. Top with cooked fried egg, cheese, bacon, and the other half of the donut.
Here's the breakdown of calories that I searched for. It's less than a Big Mac!
1 Krispy Kreme Donut = 250
1 Fried Egg = 92
2 slices of bacon = 84
1 slice Kraft singles = 70
TOTAL = 496
