The Chicken Sandwich With a Long John Doughnut Bun

The Chicken Sandwich With a Doughnut BunSure, the cheeseburger with the doughnut bun was great and all, but it wasn’t a original. In fact, it was done all summer long all over the country at numerous state and county fairs. I knew there had to be some kind of way to improve upon it, and I feel like I’ve done just that with my latest concoction.

Although I did enjoy the burger with the doughnut bun I couldn’t help but wish that I could have instead used my favorite doughnut of all time, the long john. How would this be possible though? A burger is round, (or square at certain places such as Wendy’s or White Castle) and the long john is rectangular shaped. Should I cut the ends off the long john and make it into a square? Would forming a burger patty into a rectangle be a better alternative? After racking my brain it suddenly came to me. What’s the one fast food sandwich that would fit perfectly inside a long john doughnut bun? The Burger King Original Chicken Sandwich of course!

I once again headed to the grocery store to buy a 50 cent doughnut and then drove over to the nearest Burger King where I ordered an Original Chicken Sandwich, onion rings and a Diet Coke. Also, I completely understand the irony of ordering a diet soda to go with this meal, but I actually like the taste of diet more than non-diet.

Once my order was ready I cut the long john in half and assembled my lunch. The sandwich was actually really good, and I enjoyed it a lot more than the burger with a doughnut bun. Once I bit into it however I realized that I probably should have ordered my chicken sandwich without the lettuce because leafy greens and doughnuts really don’t mix too well. I’d consider skipping the mayonnaise as well, but I think that this sandwich would be way too dry without it, so maybe asking them to go easy on the mayo would be your best bet if you plan to try this yourself.

Although the sandwich was good the highlight of my lunch was probably the girl that got up and walked over to my table while I was eating and asked “What are you doing that for?”

    What if you got a custard filled long john instead of the mayo?
