Let me start by saying that hands down, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. There are so many options, it sometimes seems endless. Pancakes, eggs, fruit, cereal, avocado toast, donuts, the list goes on and on.  

While maybe not the healthiest of options, bacon, egg, and cheese donuts are the perfect indulgence that combines quite a few breakfast favorites and will leave you satisfied for the rest of the day.
