One of these things doesn't belong..


..or does it? Let me explain..


Anyone who has the Food Network knows that Paula Deen is a little bit crazy. Well on Friday, Bob and I were watching one of her cooking shows. She was making brunch and made this recipe..

You may be asking.. "Wait, is that a burger, egg, and bacon sandwiched between two glazed donuts?" Yep. that's what she made alright.

My response: "Oh gross!"
Bob's response: "That looks so good!"

So Bob surprised me Saturday morning by cooking us a little breakfast/brunch experiment. After all, it seemed so strange that we had to try it. (and I had to get pictures to document and prove we actually did it)


Bob made me try it first.


Can you see the concern on my face? Then it was the chef's turn.


Was it messy? YES!

Was it different? YES!

Was it gross? Actually, no. It was pretty good.

In fact these were our plates when all was said and done..


(Mine is on the left. It was a really large sandwich, so I had a little left over, because I was so stuffed.)

So I took a picture of what I had for breakfast today. I think it will be pretty obvious..


Yeah, right! The donut sandwich was pretty good, but it's one of those extremely filling, calorie filled monster sandwiches that you only try every once in a while. I think I will stick to my plain bagel with a couple slices of cheese for now.

So, what's the verdict. Do you think we're crazy? We might be, but atleast we tried something different.

Ok...that sandwich had a million and three calories and who knows how many fat grams!!!! I would be happy with just the two donuts!

It sounds kind of like a Monte Cristo sandwich but has way too many calories for me! Leave it to Paula to come with donut buns!

Wow, I don't think I could do that sandwich. I guess it doesn't help that I don't like donuts and I hate eggs.....

I have to hand it to you and Bob for being brave enough to try that though!! Good 'ol Paula- I'm surprised that sandwich didn't call for like 3 cubes of butter on it. She loves that butter!!!

I don't do hamburger in the morning or anytime before noon, it is just wrong. That being said if you took off the hamburger I would give it a try!
