Bacon or sausage? When you’re making (or ordering) your favorite breakfast sandwich, which do you prefer? Personally, I rotate. It really just depends on what I haven’t had in a while and what sounds best at the time. However, when it came to the construction of this Donut Breakfast Sandwich, I kept going back and forth. So then, I asked myself a better question. Why not both? I couldn’t think of why I wouldn’t double up on this epic breakfast sandwich. Alas, our Donut Breakfast Sandwich became even more delicious. 

You know what else makes a delicious breakfast sandwich? Candied bacon. This candied bacon could honestly be eaten all by itself. The good news is that it’s super easy to make, and is actually the first thing I did for this recipe. Start by cutting some bacon slices into small, cube-like pieces. Then, place them in a preheated skillet over the fire. As they begin cooking, add in some of my Maple Bourbon seasoning and give them a stir. Next, to get that beautiful, sweet caramelization to our bacon bites we’ll add some maple syrup and a splash of bourbon. Once they’ve finished cooking, remove them from the skillet. Set them aside for later.
