Behold the savoury doughnnut. Crispy, flaky, grilled cheese doughnuts you can make at home

Published

It's not often that savoury versions of our favourite desserts work. For example, we would always choose a crepe smothered in chocolate sauce over one stuffed with mushroom and ham. But we've found a recipe that has changed that science forever.

Feast your eyes on grilled cheese crescent doughnuts. 

The crispy rings look like large doughnuts but they are flaky like puff pastry and are oozing with melted cheese. We imagine they would taste like cheesy Yorkshire puddings. 

The recipe has been invented by Amy Erickson from American food blog Oh, Bite It!. In the last year, Erickson has proved to be a food magician, whipping up weird and wonderful recipes from from deep fried tequila shots to mac 'n' cheese burritos. But this has to be her best one yet.

"This is one of those recipes of mine that leaves me speechless," she writes. "This creation left me stuttering as I tried to describe their utter greatness to my mom (maybe it was because my mouth was full)."
