Maple Bacon Donuts

Maple Bacon Donuts

By Traeger Kitchen

Add this savory fall dessert to your spread of Halloween treats. We dare you to try & resist a warm donut iced with sweet maple & topped with salty bits of bacon.

Prep Time

15 Minutes

Cook Time

25 Minutes




Number of people serving


Units of measurement:
1 1/2 Cup powdered sugar
1/4 Cup maple syrup
2 Teaspoon Extract, Maple
2 Tablespoon heavy cream
12 Glazed Yeast Doughnuts


  • 1

    When ready to cook, set temperature to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

  • 2

    In a medium saucepan, combine powdered sugar, syrup, and maple flavoring and cook on the stovetop at medium-high until the mixture comes to a slow boil. Cook, stirring often, for 3-5 minutes.

  • 3

    Turn the heat to low and stir in the heavy cream. Add more powdered sugar or cream, as needed, to reach your desired texture. (Add more powdered sugar if you want a frosting-like topping, or more cream if you want a glaze-like topping).

  • 4

    Lay the bacon strips directly on the grill grate. Grill for 5-7 minutes per side (until crisp).

    500 ˚F / 260 ˚C


  • 5

    Remove to a plate and crumble or chop when cool.

  • 6

    Place the doughnuts directly on the grill grate (don't clean the grate after cooking your bacon, the grease on the grill grate will help keep the doughnuts from sticking). Grill for 3-5 minutes per side, until the glaze is bubbly and there are grill marks on the doughnuts.

    500 ˚F / 260 ˚C


  • 7

    Transfer your hot doughnuts to a serving platter. Pour the glaze directly on top. Sprinkle with the crumbled bacon and serve immediately. Enjoy!
