The "Luther" Donut Burger is one of the unhealthiest burgers to date, averaging at around 1,000 calories per burger. Although the origins of the donut burger are mostly speculative — its name is often attributed to R&B singer Luther Vandross — many restaurants have incorporated the trend into their menus. They’re classically made with two donuts (or one cut lengthwise) instead of buns, and comprised of a hamburger patty, cheese, and bacon. To make your own version at home, simply choose your favorite brand of donuts and build your personalized burger between them.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 ounces ground beef
  • 1 slice Cheddar cheese
  • 1 Krispy Kreme donut, split horizontally
  • 2 slices cooked bacon
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS

Form the ground beef into a hamburger patty and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Preheat a skillet or grill to medium-high and add the burger. Cook until medium-rare, about 2 minutes per side. While the burger is cooking on the second side, add the slice of cheese and let it melt over the heat. Place the burger on the bottom half the donut and top with the bacon slices and the top half of the donut.
