A collaboration between an innovative donut shop and a bar in New York City has resulted in an exciting food hybrid, a grilled cheese donut.
Known as the The Flamin’ Hot Doughnut Grilled Cheese, this new savory snack made its debut last week. The dish consists of a Habanero Glazed Bacon Donut, sliced in half, filled with mozzarella, and hung over a bowl of tomato soup.
Jeremy Lieberman, Director of Marketing at Clinton Hall, contacted The Doughnut Project in New York City about a potential collaboration after a chance food encounter. “I came across The Doughnut Project while walking around the neighborhood, tried two of their doughnuts (The Everything Doughnut and Beet Doughnut) and knew at that instant that we had to do something with them,” Lieberman says.
The cheesy donut is only available for a limited time and in short supply. Clinton Hall is selling it for just a few more weekends, and only 20 are sold per day.
