Yes, it’s true Maple Bacon Paczki to celebrate Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras. Paczki filled with yummy cream and topped with maple and bacon! I found these at my local Busch’s store in Ann Arbor, Michigan – how lucky can I get 🙂
See my homemade version here. Maybe next year I will try this “gourmet” version using two of my favorite ingredients; maple and bacon.
I just went online and found out that Lazybones Smokehouse in Roseville, Michigan has been making these for about 5 years for their customers. Quoting “For folks tired of eating custard or jelly filled paczki every Fat Tuesday, they can revel in the fried dough covered in a maple glaze, then rolled around in “pig candy”, smoked bacon covered in brown sugar”. Busch’s version also had cream inside!
