Delicious Krispy Kreme Recipes
This Krispy Kreme breakfast sandwich is combined salty ham, Gruyère cheese, and an over-easy fried egg on an original glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut to create a croque madame.
The flavors are amazing together!
- 4 Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnuts (or you can cut 2 in half if you’re delicate)
- 2 thick slices of good smoked ham
- 2 slices Gruyère cheese
- Hellmann’s mayonnaise
- 2 eggs
- salt and pepper
- 2-3 tablespoons butter
Lay 2 doughnuts out on a plate. Melt a tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium-high heat and sear the slices of ham on both sides briefly. Remove them to a paper towel to drain for a bit before placing each slice onto a doughnut. Top with a thin slice or two of Gruyère and microwave for a a few seconds to get the cheese melted. Smear with some mayonnaise. Melt the last tablespoon of butter in your skillet. Break one egg at a time into the pan, salt and pepper it, and fry it to your desired doneness (I’d like to make a pitch for over-easy or -medium, since the gooey yolk is delicious in this sandwich!) Place the fried egg briefly on the paper-towel lined plate to drain off the excess butter, and then place one on top of each stack of ham and Gruyère. Top both sandwiches with another doughnut as the “top bun.” Serve immediately.
Yep that is a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich between a Krispy Kreme doughnut bun.
The Krispy Kreme Breakfast Sandwich
- 1 egg
- 2 slices of bacon
- 1 slice of your favorite cheese
- 1 Krispy Kreme Doughnut
- Salt and pepper to taste
To start you need a Krispy Kreme Doughnut. I used a fresh off the line doughnut and it was a little too soft to cut. I would recommend using one that has completely cooled. Cut the doughnut in half.
Next fry up some bacon. I used the microwave as I was in a hurry. Place the two strips of bacon on a couple layers of paper towel that are arranged on a microwave safe plate. Cover the bacon with another paper towel and place in the microwave on high for 4 minutes. It comes out perfect every time. Microwaves vary so you may have to decrease or increase the time by 30 seconds.
Next fry up an egg. I like a hard yolk in my breakfast sandwiches. Maybe it is because the golden arches as a kid, not sure. But I usually break the egg to get a nice solid egg platform. Cook the egg and then fold it into a square. Place the bacon on top and then layer on the cheese. To melt the cheese perfectly, put a couple of drops of water in the pan and then cover. The steam will melt the cheese perfectly.
Don’t worry about the calories.
