If you are a connoisseur of doughnuts like we are, then you've probably seen the sweet-and-savory mashup of doughnuts sprinkled with bacon. This treat, however, takes it to the next level.

Today is National Doughnut Day. We celebrate, of course, with doughnuts. We would like to take it one step further and nominate the bacon-fried doughnut to the position of Official Doughnut of National Doughnut Day.

The thing you need to understand about these particular deep-fried flavor bombs is that they aren't coy about sprinkling a few bacon bits on a plain, glazed doughnut. No, these are the epitome of commitment. They are literally wrapped in delicious bacon and fried again. See?

If you are asking yourself, "Why?" then you have completely missed the point of National Doughnut Day. The real question is, why has no one else thought of this before? That hardly matters now. Amy at Oh, Bite It! thought of it, just in time for the most wonderful day of the year.

Besides, the whole point of celebrating doughnuts with their own day is that people who love the little dough rings can fly their deep-fried flag high without being judged. Some people like their doughnuts plain, some like them with maple glaze, and some like them with sprinkles.

Doughnut pioneers everywhere will love them wrapped entirely in bacon and deep-fried to perfection.
