Maple & Bacon Glazed Donuts


  • 1 can biscuit dough (I used Grands)
  • 6 -7 strips bacon , cooked crisp and chopped
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar , sifted
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • dash of salt
  • Canola or peanut oil for frying


  1. Whisk together the confectioners' sugar, syrup and salt together in a small deep bowl and set aside. Place a cooling rack inside of a sheet pan and set aside.
  2. Add oil to your deep fryer according to instructions or fill a deep pot with 2 inches of oil over medium-high heat to 365° F on a candy thermometer. Using a slotted spatula, drop the donuts into the hot oil in batches, being careful not to crowd the pan. Fry for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until the donuts are golden brown and cooked through. Donut holes should take slightly less time, about 30 to 60 seconds per side. Break open a “test donut” from the first batch to make sure the donuts are cooking correctly; adjust the heat level of the oil as needed.
  3. Using a slotted spoon or spatula, transfer the donuts and holes to the paper towels to drain.Once the donuts are cool enough to touch, dip the top into the glaze and then into the chopped bacon and place on the cooling rack. Repeat with the rest of the donuts and donut holes.
