Glazed Donut Burger
• 8 ounces ground angus sirloin
• 4 pieces of bacon
• 2 slices of cheddar cheese
• Fresh glazed donut, larger ones work best
• Salt, pepper
Fry the bacon in a pan then place to the side
Shape the meat into a patty
A trick my dad learned when he was making the fresh burgers is to make an indent on the top of the burger; this allows the burger to expand as it cooks.
Season patty with salt and pepper.
Grill the burger and throw on the bacon and cheese at the end of cooking.
Split the donuts; grill until light brown, place the glazed side of the donut towards the burger, (Easier for eating.)

Crash! The waves hurry up the beach towards the houses, then drawn back into the gorgeous blue sea! Every year my family travels up to Salisbury, Massachusetts where our 143 year old cottage, lays. Every year all the kids (9 kids) lay on a mattress riding the waves desperately hanging on. The day we started this amusing tradition we had the best dinner that my older sister, Jaclyn, spotted at the Big E. This meal is a burger with cheese and bacon on a grilled glazed donut Yum!
The worst part of going up to our cottage is the long drive up! Along the way we have our usual stops with the family and it always Dunkin donuts or rest stops to play with the dogs. The appalling three hours up to Mass on the never ending highways, is what everyone in the family dreads! Cars honk as we pull up to the tolls. Finally, we start to recognize the scene around us. A ‘Welcome to Salisbury” sign greets us. We drive through the center where there are, arcades. After an ongoing minute we spot at our little square cottage next to all the huge hotels. We walk in greeted with a perfect view of the ocean!
We all ran down to the beach on the hottest day yet, pulling down the raft, and heading for the water. The cold water swarmed around us. Not caring we ran deeper and deeper in to the water. For a while we wait around for a wave to come. Soon we are cold and head in without a wave. On the last gimps back at the water I saw it, the biggest wave. Everyone dove on to the raft, like a pig pile. Water splashed around us as the wave lifted us higher and higher picking up the speed as we went. Then it threw us down and we slowly inched our way to the shore.
We walked up to where we were sitting, with smiles to our ears; we were all reliving the great time in our heads. We dried off then lay down on our towels getting baked by the sun soon being hot enough to go back into the water! The clock was ticking away, coming close to 12:00. My dad got up to make lunch telling us, “It is a surprise.” We waited for his “okay” for us to come in. When he finally called us in we could smell a sweet smell joining another smell of bacon. There on the table, we saw what we all have been dying to try. Burgers with bacon and cheese on a grilled glazed donut one of the best meals! What could make this day any better?
First having a slow drive up to Mass., ridding the great blue waves into the sandy shore, and being greeted by family. All to build up to devouring a spectacular burger with a sweet and salty taste! This is sure to be one of the best vacations I have had yet!
