ONION RING DONUTS Serve As The Buns On This Meaty Burger

One of the more creative burger concoctions I’ve seen in my lifetime is the donut burger. To me, it didn’t always make sense — a sweet, glazed, sticky donut serving as the buns for a savory, cheesy, melty burger? The flavor combo sounded bomb, but it just seemed like it would be a total mess to eat.

Then, this burger showed up and made me realize just how amazing donut burgers can really be.

This epic burger, served at The Speakeatery in Asbury Park, New Jersey, is different from any other donut burger I’ve seen. That’s because instead of glazed, sticky donuts serving as the buns, the donuts here are each made with an ONION RING.

The burger itself is a meaty monster, containing two beef patties, pork roll, bacon, and American cheese. Then, The Speakeatery takes thick cut rings of white onion, dips them in a donut batter, and deep-fries it to golden perfection. There’s no glaze on the rings afterward, meaning that you get an airy, yeasty, crunchy onion ring sandwiching a pile of juicy, savory meat.

Plenty of burgers have stuffed onion rings within their buns before, but actually using them as a bun? And in donut form? That’s a culinary checkmate.

If all donut burgers started getting made with onion rings, count me on board this hype train.

Burger King Just Released A Heart-Stopping Doughnut Burger In Israel

Blending sweet tastes with savory ones always elicits a special kind of sensation in your mouth, and if you’ve ever had a doughnut-bun burger, you know the feeling.

With the Hanukkah tradition of eating Sufganiyot, or jelly doughnuts, Burger King in Israel decided to incorporate that with their burgers.

They call it the SufganiKing burger, and comes with a flame grilled quarter-pound beef patty, mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup, and sliced onion.

In other words, it’s a doughnut Whopper–which sounds amazing.

Don’t know of any American holiday traditions that involve doughnuts, but it’d be nice to find an excuse to get this burger in the US. Preferably with a Krispy Kreme collab like Chicken Charlie’s triple donut burger.

Somebody Made a Cronut Hamburger, Everyone Can Just Go Home Now

cronutleader

You’ve heard of a Cronut. You’ve probably heard of Umami Burger, the west coast-based fast casual burger chain that’s just made its New York City debut. Chances are you’ve even heard of a Luther (“donut-bun”) hamburger before, but we still recommend you pipe down and take a seat because our friends over at First We Feast are about to blow your freaking mind.

They asked what would happen if you cut open Dominique Ansel’s infamous Cronut (already a hybrid) and stuffed it with the patty and fillings of an Umami burger, and then sent their intern Matthew Schonfeld to do the dirty work. You can read his whole snappily-written play-by-play here, but just know it involved getting off on the wrong train stop, waiting in line at 6 in the morning, getting accosted by a homeless guy and finally, nearly six hours later, biting into the “ultimate triumph of hype-on-hype-on-hype, fat-on-fat-on-fat, zero-fucks-given, brunch-on-dinner-on-dessert #hashtag feeding frenzy,” ever.

Schonfeld writes, “To my surprise, the flavors melded well. The blackberry filling sweetened the savory Umami flavoring. As my waitress told me, ‘It looks like a heart attack on a plate.’ I corrected her, ‘A little sweeter than a heart attack.’”

Darling, a #YOLO-worthy moment if we ever saw one.
