I was surprised to learn that National donut day is more than just marketing. Turns out Salvation Army female volunteers made doughnuts for the U.S. Army in WWI and during the Great Depression. In1938 the Salvation Army decided to honor these “dough lassies” and the tradition continued through WWII and beyond. National doughnut day (1st Friday of June) is a tribute to those women. For my onwn little celebration I wanted to try out the new Glazed Doughnut Breakfast Sandwich at Dunkin’ Donuts. Problem is, I live in Los Angeles and we don’t have Dunkin’ Donuts. So guess what? I’m going to make my own Glazed Donut Breakfast sandwich with a fried egg, bacon and cheese. It’s good, really good, dangerously good and easy to make too. All you have to do is slice a donut in half and place a fired egg and some bacon inside and devour. Now I ddn’t feel so badly about living so far from Dunkin Donuts.
