A dear friend sent a pic of his bacon maple glazed Long John breakfast the other morning. I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I just made my own!

Made my dough first, let it rise for one hour...

Divided the dough in half, rolled each out and cut ...

I let these rise until doubled. About 30 minutes..
Then fried til golden..

Made a glaze using brown sugar, maple syrup, maple extract, 1/2 and 1/2 and a pinch of salt..

Dipped the Long Johns while they were warm..

Crumbled some crisp bacon and decided to go with cashews and pecans too..

Everybody got a shot of crisp bacon first...

Then I added cashews to some and pecans to a couple others...

I've made plenty of donuts in the past but for some reason hadn't made Long Johns. I really, really liked these. I'll be doing this again in the near future!

Thanks for looking!

Wilford Brimley just tossed his glucose monitor out the truck window and backed up twice just to be sure the job was done.

That's top spot bucket list last meal worthy for real!

Sitting here listening to obscure Simon and Garfunkel. Thinking of the time I drove from Austin TX to Alexandria LA with 39cents a can of Skoal and my soon to be confiscated Dadís American Express. I departed Austin around 2am. Some little town in deep East TX I stopped to get gas. I had been boxing that week and was 1&1. I looked and felt battered.
Topped off with gas bought a maple long john and coffee. The lady looked genuinely concerned. Black eye and a bent ear.

The rain- pitch black back roads. The maple long john.

Good times.

Thank You

lol Thanks Neighbor! Your dad sounds like me! I thought that next time I should double the batch... but that's probably not a good idea! :laugh:

What I like about those is that you can easily fit one in each hand. I will absolutely be making those in the near future, and if my attempt turns out good, they just may make an appearance at the Carolina Bash in early April. You always amaze and impress with your creations and this one is at the top. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

Have you tried Lakanto Monkfruit sweeteners? They are very good. They can be used as 1:1 replacement for sugar, and have no impact on blood sugar. They also make a maple syrup. It isn't nearly as good as the real deal, but is great for a zero sugar syrup.

Those look fantastic!! The ones around here are all fried in lard and cream filled. They will take 10 years off your life expectancy but worth it.

I wish! I'm out of smoked nuts right now. lol I'll have to remedy that. Thanks Josh! :grin:

Thanks Dave! You need to give these a try. You can pretty much put which ever toppings on that you like. I loved the bacon, but the bacon cashews were good too! :grin:

Thank you MadMan! :grin:

If I ate those and totally exploded I would see that as a good thing - the eating part, not the exploding part. The exploding would just be a necessary side effect to something that had to be done. :hungry:

Sweet baby chee, Jeanie - I'm pretty sure those are never gonna leave my mind! Wow! :shocked:
