Maple bacon and Strawberries and cream crullers at Plan Check Kitchen

Did you know that Friday, June 6 (tomorrow) is National Donut Day? I had no idea, but Google filled me in. Basically the Salvation Army played a major role in bringing the sugary treats to the US. According to a YouTube post, “The first National Donut Day was established in Chicago in 1938 to raise money for people in need during the Great Depression. The holiday has since been celebrated on the first Friday in June as a way to commemorate the service of The Salvation Army’s Doughnut Lassies and honor the memory of our soldiers.”

Well, tomorrow at Plan Check Kitchen + Bar’s Chef Ernesto Uchimura is jazzing up his signature crullers at the Sawtelle and Fairfax restaurants with a pair of Strawberries n’ Cream Crullers topped with whipped cream and seasonal fruit and the Fairfax outpost will offer a Maple Bacon Cruller with pig candy and maple glaze ($6 a plate). The average glazed donut, according to Google, has more than 350 calories, just saying.

Remember if you succumb to the temptation it will cost you a hike, run, or good gym workout to burn off the calories. Enjoy.
