Croissant Donut Breakfast Sandwich

I can explain.

This is not what it seems.

Except it might be exactly what it seems.

I told myself it would be unwise to do this.  Why would I take my favorite breakfast sandwich ingredients and layer them in between an ooey-gooey fluffy donut?

Because I love you and I want you to be happy.  That's why.

This sandwich is the shizzzzzz. In the interest of full disclosure, I honestly thought it would be disgusting.  But I wanted to make it anyhow because I saw a picture on the 'gram (aka Instagram) a few weeks ago of a donut breakfast sandwich.  So of course that was all I could think about from then on.

Despite the fact that I live a half block from a Dunkin Donuts, I had the most difficult time finding a glazed donut to use as the "sandwich bread".  My search for the perfect donut delayed the preparation of this sandwich by a few days, but I was finally able to get my hands on a Croissant Donut from Dunkin Donuts.  I am the picture of good health. 

Of course you don't have to use this exact type of donut; however, I found that since this donut is thicker than a regular glazed donut, it stands up better to being cut in half and stuffed with breakfast ingredients.

In my case, I made this sandwich a variation of my Bacon Brie Avocado sandwich (which I have yet to stop eating).  I nixed the mustard, pea shoots, and cayenne pepper in this case to keep it as simple as possible.  I mean, as simple as you can make a donut sandwich be, I guess.

As before, I'm offering guidelines as to how to make this sandwich, since everyone may want something slightly different.  All I can say is that you must try this for yourself.  It was completely delicious and I'm obsessed with the salty-sweet combo of all of these ingredients.  Dare I even say that this sandwich could be addictive?  Don't say I didn't warn you!
