  1. Wrap uncooked bacon strips around doughnut in an overlapping fashion, securing ends with toothpicks. Don’t worry if the donut breaks when you’re doing this, just wrap bacon over both ends and secure it together with a toothpick. I used 3-4 strips of bacon per doughnut. Donut holes take about 1/3 of a piece of bacon.
  2. Heat canola oil in a large pot to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook 2 donuts at a time by using a slotted spoon or spatula to gently lower lower them into the hot oil. Cook for about 2 minutes per side until bacon is golden and crispy.
  3. Remove from oil and place on a plate lined with several paper towels. Remove toothpicks and enjoy immediately.


Regular or cake donuts will work for this recipe.
