Whoa, that name is a mouthful! But so is the sandwich. About a month ago Qrunch Foods posted a picture of the Philly Cheesecake Donut on their facebook page and asked their followers if any of us would be willing to eat it. I said I definitely would, if I could make a vegan version. And then…I flew off to Portland where vegan donuts are plentiful. I arrived equipped with a coupon for one free box of Qrunch burgers and got down to business.
Here’s the original sandwich:
We’re not counting calories today. I grabbed the Qrunch Burgers from Fred Meyer, Daiya Cheddar and Roast Beef-style Tofurky Deli Slices from Food Fight!, and a box of donuts from Sweetpea Baking Co. I only needed one donut for my recipe, the others were just…samples.
Start by slicing up three or four of the deli slices into long strips and sauteing them in oil with onions, cooking slowing and turning regularly until the onions soften. Meanwhile, pop a couple Spicy Italian Qrunch Burgers in the toaster. Then,
Have a fork and knife handy. And a napkin, and a beer. The flavor combination may seem ridiculous, but salty & sweet, sweet & spicy, meaty & cheesy all go together really well and all of them combined into one glorious sandwich is pretty amazing.
