8 Crazy doughnut mashups you won't believe actually exist
Doughnuts, whether topped or filled, are the perfect base for crazy food mashups. Is there anything people won't stuff a doughnut with?
San Francisco-based sweetshop The Cravory recently posted an insanely tasty-looking sweet treat — a doughnut stuffed with an entire cookie. Just in case that doughnut alone wasn't enough of an indulgence for you.
Doughnuts are the perfect pastry to experiment with — they can be stuffed or topped with all manner of ingredients. If you can think of a way to doctor up a doughnut, then it's probably already been done. Don't believe us? Then check out the wild doughnut dishes below.

This ingenious culinary confusion combines two of my favorite breakfast treats: waffles and doughnuts. Just don't make them on a weekday. A carb-a-licious sweet treat like these is sure to inspire a midmorning nap.

If you can imagine a more delectable-sounding food than pizza on top of and inside a deep-fried ball of dough, then you're a more creative soul than I. In my case, these savory morsels look like heaven.

Can't decide if you want a savory or sweet breakfast? Why choose when you could just slap a fried egg and some bacon onto your favorite doughnut? It might sound crazy, but sometimes crazy is just the morning pick-me-up you need.

This doughnut from Gourdoughs in Austin, Texas, takes the savory pastry to extreme levels, with pulled pork and potato salad on a fresh doughnut, drizzled with honey barbecue sauce. So worth the inevitable heartburn.
Learning about the existence of this doughnut, from KFC in Singapore, has ruined my day. "What could make a doughnut even tastier? How about some fish?" How about not! It's things like this that give doughnut mashups a bad name.
Buffalo Crunch doughnut
You can technically share this pull-apart doughnut, but good luck finding anyone willing to give it a go with you. Drenched in mysterious "crunch," the Buffalo Crunch doughnut from Tim Hortons has a pool of hot sauce in the middle, and also comes in a ranch version for those wary of the unbridled Buffalo heat of the original. Luckily for humanity, the doughnut is being offered for a limited time only at the New York State Fair. So, I guess, get one while you can?
