1 1/2 cups - wildflower honey

2 T - salted butter

6 each - plain glazed doughnuts, sliced horizontally

to taste - kosher salt

6 slices - muenster cheese

3 cups - Sambal Honey Slaw, recipe below

For Sambal Honey Slaw:

1 1/2 T - sambal chili paste

1/2 T - wildflower honey

1/4 cup - mayonnaise

1/2 tsp. - minced garlic

3 cups - bok choy, julienned

3 T - green onion, julienned

6 T - carrots, peeled and julienned

1 T - chili threads


For Miso Honey Glazed Donut Burger:
In a small bowl combine the miso and honey. Mix thoroughly and set aside.

Add the butter to a preheated griddle and spread evenly over the surface with a metal burger flipper. Place doughnuts, cut side down (inverted) onto buttered griddle. Place burgers on the other side of the griddle and sprinkle each with a pinch of salt. Brush doughnuts with the miso/honey mixture on side facing up, just enough to lightly coat. When the doughnuts are crispy and golden brown on the griddle side, use a metal spatula to move them from the griddle to resting rack. Flip burgers, pressing lightly with the spatula, and season with an additional pinch of salt. Cook the burgers to medium, flip, and add a slice of cheese to each patty. Cook until cheese is melted and transfer to resting rack.

Place the bottom of each doughnut, griddled side down on a cutting board or parchment-lined sheet tray. Top each donut with a burger patty. Top each patty with a 1/2 cup of sambal honey slaw. Add the doughnut top with the griddled side up to each burger. Skewer each burger with a sandwich pick and plate on the serving dish. Serve immediately.

For Sambal Honey Slaw:
Create a sambal dressing for the slaw by combining the sambal chili paste, honey, mayonnaise, and garlic in a small mixing bowl. Whisk thoroughly to combine.

In a larger mixing bowl add the bok choy, green onions, and carrots. Add the sambal dressing and mix until well combined. Add the chili threads and toss gently.


Add 2 slices of crispy, thick-cut bacon to each burger for an even more decadent experience.
