Burger King has created a doughnut hamburger for Hanukkah, and they’re calling it the SufganiKing. The traditional doughnuts eaten around the holidays are called sufganiyot, so you add that to a Burger King burger, and you get one delicious portmanteau. In place of the typical jelly filling, there’s ketchup.
Of course, Burger King did not invent the doughnut burger. We’ve seen glazed versions at state fairs and independent restaurants all over the U.S. But you know what? Every time we see it, we think damn, that’s a good idea. So we’re glad to see the doughnut burger going mainstream.
Sadly, the SufganiKing is available only in Israel from Dec. 25 through Jan. 1, the run of Hanukkah this year.
But don’t let that stop you from celebrating with your own SufganiKing. All you need is a glazed doughnut split in half and burger ingredients to make this miracle happen in your own home.
