Grilled cheese doughnuts

Prep & Cook Time: 10 mins                  Skill Level: Easy                      Serves: 1

Ingredients needed:

  • 1 glazed doughnut
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 2 slices Westminster Sharp English Cheddar Cheese (perfect for melting!)
  • Crushed crispy bacon bits

Let's get cooking:

  1. Pre-head your grill to a medium heat
  2. Slice your doughnut of choice in half lengthways
  3. Lightly spread butter on the inner side of the doughnuts (this is the side that has been sliced with no glaze)
  4. Now slice your Westminster Sharp English Cheddar Cheese - we recommend cutting 2 slices - but it all depends on how cheesy you want to go and how big your doughnut is!
  5. Lay our first doughnut slice butter-side down onto your grill tray and place your slices of cheese on top
  6. Then, put your second doughnut slice on top, butter side up. The cheese should be sandwiched between!
  7. Cook until the cheese is melted and the doughnut is golden brown, turning over to ensure that the doughnut is toasted evenly before serving.
    This should take 2-3 minutes depending on how you like it!
  8. Sprinkle some crushed crispy bacon on top for that extra something special!
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy!
