Simple Party Idea: Grilled Donuts!11:31 PM
I've seen grilled doughnuts quite a bit in magazines lately, but most of the recipes required me to make my own doughnuts. Originally, I had planned to try that, but then life kicked in. Between being super pregnant and having a huge garden to tend, I just realized that it was never going to happen.
Then, I remembered that my local Walmart carried some yummy glazed doughnuts that would be perfect for this project. I managed to find some on the discounted rack that were a day old. They weren't going to be grilled until the next day, so I bought a few packages!
The next afternoon, as my husband grilled burgers on one side of the grill, I put the glazed doughnuts on the other (on low heat). Once they had char marks on one side, I flipped them over. They smelled great!
What can you serve your doughnuts with? I've seen everything from jellies to jams to chocolate cream. I loved pistachio pudding, so I whipped up a little instant Great Value pudding and used it to dip my doughnut in. It was awesome!
This would be a great idea for a party or any summer outdoor event. The doughnuts are reasonably priced, so you can buy several boxes for your occasion. Grilling takes just minutes, and you can provide a variety of dipping sauces to give everyone in the party something to customize their donut experience with!
