Use a blender for a scrumptious spin on mini donuts. Iced coffee, ice cream, cake donuts, and almond milk create an indulgent afternoon treat. How Sweet It Is has the step-by-step directions (bonus: it only takes 5 minutes!).
The Donut Breakfast Sandwich
Craving a bit of protein with your pastry? Stack eggs and bacon to take your treat to new heights. Mr. Breakfast recreates the Dunkin’ Donuts Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich with a recipe ideal for lazy Sunday brunches. Surprisingly, the restaurant version has only 360 calories—so this occasional indulgence may not be as sinful as it looks.

This is an especially useful trick for when you (somehow!) manage to have leftover donuts, or for when donuts have gone slightly stale. Heat a donut in a waffle maker until it becomes caramelized, crisp, and absolutely drool-worthy. I Am a Food Blog explains the origin of this genius idea.

Heat up your afternoon with a lunch that’s a delectable mix of savory and sweet. It’s as simple as your typical grilled cheese sandwich, but far more satisfying. Taste Spotting shows exactly how to grill the lip-smacking indulgence.
