Today is National Donut Day! Although we never need a reason to enjoy donuts, it’s the perfect excuse to try these Maple Bacon Donuts.

This recipe takes store bought donuts up a notch with apple-maple glaze and crispy bacon. I love making semi-homemade treats when I’m low on time, but still want to add some TLC. These are sure to hit the spot when you’re craving both sweet and savory!
