I guess the marriage of bacon and morning pastry at Dunkin’ Donuts was inevitable.
The chain first introduced the Glazed Breakfast Sandwich in April, Eater National reported. But only customers in Massachusetts got to try this sandwich made up of a fried egg and bacon between two glazed doughnuts.
But lest we not forget that Kentucky’s been doing this meat-and-doughnut sandwich thing for years.
I think I just finished digesting the doughnut cheeseburger I ate at the 2010 Kentucky State Fair. Even though the dish was pretty tasty, I don’t know if I have the gumption to eat another one this decade. But I’m willing to give DD’s version a whirl.
Will you try Dunkin’ Donuts’ new doughnut sandwich?
In the process, I’ve discovered a few similarities between exceptionally good restaurants in Louisville.
There’s nowhere to park and/or there’s a wait.
The hosts and hostesses don’t wear a uniform and/or they have at least one visible tattoo.
The dishes have catchy names.
If a place has two out of three, some good food is probably coming your way. But when a restaurant has all three … prepare for a foodgasm.
This coveted trifecta was present during a trip to Wild Eggs, a breakfast, brunch and lunch restaurant with several locations throughout Louisville.
My roommates and I had to stalk a woman in a minivan to find a parking spot in the small lot at the Dutchmans Lane locations. The friendly hostess had some impressive ink running up and down her arms. And when we were seated after just a five-minute wait, I squealed when I looked at the menu and saw dishes with names like Batman and Reuben ($11.99) and Sweet Home Apple Bourbon crepes ($9.99).
The signs all pointed to some good eatin’. And let me tell you, good eatin’ was had by all.
