A chip shop owner in Preston, Lancashire in the UK has given a new twist to the fast evolving world of doughnuts – forget jam, cream or chocolate fillings, forget even about cronuts and say hello to spam filled deep fried doughnuts.
The unusual, some would say bizarre, combination came when after Mister Eaters owner John Clarkson decided to put together something a bit different to celebrate National Doughnut Day, which occurs on the first Friday of June every year.
“They are so easy to make and taste stunning, the saltiness of the meat really goes with the sweet dough, sort of like ham and pineapple really,” Mr. Clarkson told the Daily Mail.
The doughnuts are made fresh to order and cost £2.50 a pop. They are made by cutting a doughnut in half and placing a ring of spam in the middle, dipping the doughnut in batter and then deep frying until golden brown.
The sweet and salty stomach-filler has apparently been a hit with customers at the creative take away, which has in the past come out with such culinary delights as the pie scraper and the ulti-meatum burger.
