It may be the cold clouding my thinking, but this has been on my list for a while. I used Todd Wilbur’s clone of Krispy Kreme doughnuts to make the dough. It is from his book Top Secret Recipes Unlocked or you can find it here. I saw this combination on the TV show Food Paradise, doughnut edition; but I can’t find the restaurant that served it.
Anyway, I am doing this differently. I had that gyros meat and feta cheese to use up so they went into the dough before the second rising. They rose 40 minutes and then I deep fried them.
Everyone liked them and they really weren’t that hard. And only 40 grams of oil was absorbed. (I did throw a bit of oil away.) I liked the gyros and feta taste but plain meatloaf or burger patty with American cheese might be even better.
