Looking for a perfect breakfast sandwich? Try this bacon, egg, and cheese doughnut breakfast sandwich from

Bacon, Egg, And Cheese Doughnut Breakfast Sandwich

Breakfast sandwiches are a great way to start your day. But who needs a classic breakfast sandwich on National Doughnut Day? Not you.

Instead, make our Bacon, Egg, And Cheese Doughnut Breakfast Sandwich. This breakfast sandwich uses a glazed doughnut, cut in half, instead of sandwich bread.

It’s so good.

Rich, delicious, sweet, and potentially enough calories to last you until dinner. This is definitely a special occasion sandwich, and National Doughnut Day is a special occasion.

If you wanted to make a vegetarian version of this breakfast sandwich, just skip the bacon.

Love Care Bears? You'll LOVE these Care Bear Grumpy Bear doughnuts on

Care Bears Grumpy Bear Doughnuts

This is a little less of a recipe and more of a Care Bears Grumpy Bear Doughnuts tutorial. But it still fits in this category.

You can start with a dozen store-bought doughnuts, or you can make your own homemade doughnuts for decorating. Honestly, the decorating takes a pretty long time, so it would end up being an all day project to bake the doughnuts, let them cool, then decorate them like Grumpy Bear.

The decorations are really what turn these from doughnuts to Care Bears Grumpy Bear Doughnuts. If you can get that part down, no one will even ask if you made the doughnuts yourself. So really, just use store-bought doughnuts.

I won’t tell.

Doughnuts at weddings are so popular. Make your own with this Homemade Banana Doughnuts With Chocolate Shell Wedding Favors recipe from

Homemade Banana Doughnuts

Homemade doughnuts are really easy to make, as long as you have a doughnut pan and a recipe.

And, if you click the pink button below, you’ll have the recipe for these delicious homemade banana doughnuts.

The post is from my wedding blog, so it calls them wedding favors, but honestly, you can make them for any occasion — like National Doughnut Day — or, really, for no reason at all.

The recipe is pretty simple, especially if you’ve ever baked banana bread before. Filling the molds to the right height is a little tricky, so some of your first batch may be a little “off.” No worries. Just use those as the testers.

At least, that’s what I do in this house.

Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Holes are so easy to make at home. One batch and you'll be hooked. Get the recipe at

Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Holes

For a lot of last year, we stayed home and I just played in the kitchen. We couldn’t go out, so I would just make delicious treats.

And then I would take half of them, package them up, walk two doors down to my parents’ house, leave them on the doorstep, ring the bell, and walk six (or more) feet away. One of my parents would open the door, we would wave from afar, and that was that.

One of those treats that I perfected, and left on their doorstep, was Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Holes. They’re so delicious and so easy to make.

The only bad thing about them is that they’re so easy to make. So you’ll end up like me, making them all the time.

Or maybe you have more willpower and can make them only on National Doughnut Day.

Vampire Donuts are the perfect Halloween dessert. Plus, they're made from doughnut shop doughnuts, so they're a no bake Halloween dessert. Get the details at

Vampire Donuts

Just like the Care Bears Grumpy Bear Doughnuts above, this is a tutorial, not a recipe. These Vampire Donuts are made from store-bought doughnuts and decorated to look like vampires.

This is definitely more of a Halloween idea rather than National Doughnut Day but hey. In my mind, we’re still back in March 2020. No time, and fifteen month have passed simultaneously. So do you. Make these vampires for National Doughnut Day and for Halloween and tomorrow because they could all be the same exact day in this time warp.
