But once you've gotten to work and realize that the icing has all but melted completely off and they look even less appetizing when placed next to the other leftover goodies like Ikea cinnamon buns, homemade cookies, and chocolate Guinness cream cheese cupcakes, you know that no one there will touch the almost-nude, leaky doughnuts.
Part of me wanted to throw them out, but the hoarder in me didn't want them to go to waste so I made room in my already overcrowded freezer at home until I could think of a better use for them.
Luckily, as already mentioned, today is doughnut day and I had an idea.
Inverted grilled maple dip doughnuts stuffed with goat cheese
- maple dip doughnut
- goat cheese
1) Defrost maple dip doughnut if in freezer
2) Put pan on medium heat
3) Cut maple dip doughnut in half lengthwise
4) Butter the cut sides of the doughnut, place the buttered side down on the pan once it's warm
5) Carefully put your goat cheese on top of each half of the doughnut
6) After about 2 minutes, the goat cheese should be getting melty and if you can check the bottom of the doughnut half, it will be nicely grilled.
7) Plate one half of the doughnut and the flip the other half directly on top of it
8) Throw some strawberries on the side so you don't feel like an utter-health-failure. And then maybe add some maple syrup because you feel like you deserve it. And then you're done!

Bet you didn't think you could make a Tim Horton's doughnut gourmet, did you? Now there is no need to worry about what to do with all your leftover doughnuts from today (I know, what leftovers?).
I have a feeling this won't work AS well with the "cake" variety of doughnuts as opposed to the yeast kind (like the maple dip), but I'm sure it would still be delicious!
