YoYo Donuts' maple bacon doughnut: 100 Favorite Dishes, No. 72
The best thing to happen to breakfast
The salty. The sweet. The long john. It just all makes sense.
YoYo Donuts in Minnetonka has made breakfast an ass-kicking event with the introduction of the maple-bacon long john--and they aren't skimping.
This isn't one of those sad, greasy bacon afterthoughts you'd find on your Subway sandwich, but a solid, thick slab of applewood bacon mounted atop a heavy glaze of maple frosting. The vehicle for this fantasy is a soft long john dough that practically melts in your mouth, and you can easily find that one maple bacon delight is not enough. YoYo's Dogwood coffee provides the perfect accompaniment, and even a regular coffee comes in what looks like a bucket with a handle. We consider it a reason to get out of bed in the morning.
