I've done this before previously. When I did this the first time at the beginning of the year, I had sworn that I wouldn't do this for a long time. You feel tremendous eating the 1st one, but by the 2nd you begin to feel it, and by the 3rd, you just feel awful. It really makes you wonder how something can taste so amazing, but 5 minutes later... is the last thing you want to look at. Anyway, more than a few people got pissed off at me for not inviting them for the first go, so it was more or less a given that we had to give donut burgers another shot (I was also chastised for calling them 'Luther Burgers' when I didn't use Krispy Kreme, so I'll avoid that this time).
Like I said, a Canadian take on this abomination. Last time we used Dunkin, I think because there was a sale. Well, we were in midtown, and I love me some Tim Horton's. Mostly for their coffee ice cream drinks, but this was a mission, with a single thing on mind... donuts. It was kind of embarrassing when we walked in and just started saying... "We'll take all of the honey glazed, and um... all of the vanilla frosted... and all of those too." Whatever, in the end we walked out with some 24 donuts, since we figured about 3 or 4 per person (and some that would inevitably be eaten prior to cooking).
We used just over 3 pounds of ground beef for 15 burgers (yes 9 donuts disappeared mysteriously... ~weird). Just about a quarter pound per, it was appropriately sized given the small diameter of the donuts. My hand is there for size comparison. Like I've said previously, I have small hands, but not comically small, so that's a fair amount of ground cow.
Holy crap those were good. Chris mixed it up with the double chocolate and honey glazed for a little bit of mixed action. We chose American cheese (not because it was preferred, it was just really cheap), but it worked well. The classic honey glazed were what you'd expect, overly sweet, with an overwhelming amount of oil spilling out of the homemade patties. The vanilla frosted ones were similar, slightly cloying with the amount of sugar present between the frosting and the glaze. Like I said, the winner was probably the double chocolate mixed with the honey glazed. Since the double chocolate donut uses a non-glazed cake base, it was just slightly bitter, and managed to hit the perfect spot in terms of sugar. Sigh, where am I gonna find friends who are willing to indulge in my stupid food experiments like this at Penn? I'm kinda sad that I'm graduating (as much as I hate Columbia).
On a side note, why am I getting so many visitors from NYU lately (end creepy stalker questions)?
