Here just in time for National Doughnut Day, these strawberry shortcake grilled doughnuts combine a classic American dessert with a sweet sandwich. From Half Baked Harvest, the doughnut sandwich recipe involves making homemade brioche doughnuts, grilling them and adding fresh strawberries and whipped ricotta cream in the middle.
The easy to make fruit dessert comes together in just half an hour, making it the perfect treat to enjoy any time of day, all summer long. If you prefer not to make your own doughnuts, you could also use store-bought glazed doughnuts for this recipe. The grilled doughnuts become caramelized, giving the outside a slightly crispy texture while the inside remains warm and soft.
This dish is an excellent example of revamping a traditional food without completely changing it.
