On March 13th after a Sunday morning stroll around Lady Bird Lake, M&I decided to make a quick stop to the donut shop. An idea popped into our heads to take our glazed donuts and fill them up with everyday breakfast items to create the Breakfast Luther. Scrambled eggs, thick-cut bacon, and mozzarella cheese stack on top of each other between a sliced donut. The contrast of salty and sweet found in traditional Luther burgers is remixed in this breakfast reincarnation.
We affectionately refer to this magnificent combination of meat, cheese, and donut as a “Luther” after the hilarious episode of The Boondocks where the community becomes hooked on burgers made with a sliced donut used as a bun.
They’re currently holding the Texas Size Trailer Burger Challenge: “The Texas Size Trailer Burger is 6 1/4-pound Burgers seared to perfection, topped with 12 slices of American/ Swiss Cheese & 6 slices of Crispy Bacon. Sandwiched between a toasted World Famous Texas Size round Rock Donut.” Jeez! That’s one hell of a gut bomb.
I have yet to try the Trailer burger, but I’m sure I’ll be impressed once I do. Just by gazing into the photo’s allure, my mouth waters for this omnipotent fusion of sweet and savory juxtaposed with the right kind of crunch and necessary grease. I’ll write a real review after one of these forces to be reckoned with if I’m not overwhelmed with the itis. Peace out.
