Yeah, you read that correctly. Everything bagel DOUGHNUTS.

Ever since I had my first one a few months ago at B Doughnut, a local shop in Baltimore, my life was changed. It was delicious and so unique yet familiar since it combined the savory flavors of a bagel and the fluffiness of a doughnut.

I’ve been obsessed with this concept and knew I had to try making them. If this is the first time you’re hearing of this creation, let me tell you that it’s not as weird as it sounds and you really need to give it a try!

I filled these savory doughnuts with a blend of avocado and cream cheese so you get a trio of delicious breakfast foods – bagel, doughnut, and avocado toast – all in one because who can ever decide what to have in the morning? And just to make these even better, I topped them with candied bacon.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always enjoyed drinking green tea and eating green tea-flavored desserts so I’m loving the current trend of adding matcha green tea powder to anything and everything! I’ve seen green tea swirled pound cakes, shortbread cookies, panna cotta, and other delicious things that I can’t wait to try.

This time, I decided to make these matcha green tea macarons with green tea-white chocolate ganache! My first attempt at making macarons several years ago were a (yummy) failure – the tops were crackly and there were no “feet” (pied). The whole process was kind of daunting given the high maintenance reputation that these delicate cookies have, until I took a macaron workshop and realized that they actually aren’t too difficult to make once you know a few tips and the consistency of the batter to strive for. I remember the excitement and joy of making macarons all by myself for the first time and now I really enjoy making them!
