Dunkin’ Donuts to roll out new breakfast sandwich


As if a glazed donut wasn’t tasty enough, Dunkin’ Donuts plans to add bacon and eggs.

The chain will roll out its Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich Friday at participating restaurants.

That’s right, my friends: Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich.

This will surely be a bigger deal in the Miami Valley in a few months.

There is currently only one Dunkin’ Donuts location is the Dayton area. That restaurant is located at 7777 Springboro Pike (Ohio 741) in Miami Twp., just north of the Dayton Mall.

The chain earlier this year announced it will open 13 stores in the Dayton area. The first opening is planned for 2014.

The new sandwich might seem like the perfect ingredient for a heart attack, but it may not be so bad.

It has 360 calories, according to Dunkin’ Donuts’ website, and consist of a fried egg and cherrywood-smoked bacon inside a split glazed donut.

There are other donut sandwiches out there, of course.

Take the Luther Burger or the Krispy Kreme Donut.

Food Network star Paula Deen, America’s former Butter Queen, calls her donut burger The Lady Brunch Burger. See recipe below.

Stan Frankenthaler, Dunkin Donuts’ executive chef and vice president of Global Product Innovation, called his company’s new sandwich “fun and quirky” in a post on its website.

“The glazed donut is light and fluffy and gives you just the right amount of sweetness. Combined with the lightly salted, smoked bacon, the texture and flavors marry together in a wonderful way. It’s a delicious bite of the perfect harmonization of sweet and savory flavors,” he said in answering a question about the sandwich’s taste.

What do you think? Will you try the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich?
