Not sure if you or the kids want something sweet or salty for breakfast? Now you don't have to choose. One New York shop just started selling a new mash-up that just might trump the bagel counterpart: the everything doughnut.
The Doughnut Project, owned by Troy Neal and Leslie Polizzotto, has only been open for four months in New York but is already making a splash in the competitive and innovative food scene. To add to the handcrafted doughnut shop's bold and unique flavors of beet-glazed doughnuts stuffed with ricotta cheese ("Those Beetz Are Dope") and maple bacon doughnut bars is a breakfast dream like no other.
The everything doughnut, which currently sells for $3.75, is a yeast doughnut dipped in sweet cream cheese glaze and topped with the savory seasonings you would find on a traditional everything bagel (roasted sesame seeds, poppy seeds, garlic, pepitas and sea salt).
If this doesn't sound like your thing, you're not alone.
"People are already arguing about it, which I think is wonderful," Neal told Gothamist. "I knew we kind of hit a chord a little bit because not everybody's on board, or they're a little skeptical about what it's going to be like."
At mom.me, we loooove doughnuts and are willing to try, well, everything. (Chances are there's a box full of goodness in our office on any given week.) So we're kind of bummed the everything doughnut is on the other side of the country. So hey, The Doughtnut Project, if you're reading this, it's nice and warm on the West Coast! And we know plenty of kids moms who would go nuts for this stuff. Hint-hint.
