You bought a dozen fresh glazed donuts, and now it’s the next day and they don’t taste as good. For those folks whoever wondered what to do with leftover donuts, try this recipe for grilled donuts. Grilling your pastries then topping them with ice cream and other accompaniments is an easy and resourceful dessert solution. Grilled donuts are a sweet treat to end any meal. We topped ours with vanilla ice cream and warm caramel sauce, but any flavor of ice cream or gelato (or drizzling hot fudge) would be equally scrumptious. In the spring and summer, fresh berries would be a lovely addition. In the fall, consider topping your grilled donuts with baked apples. To grill a donut, cut it in half, and slather both halves with butter. Place donut cut-side down on the grill for 30 seconds (or use your toaster oven for 2-3 minutes). Top with ice cream and other accompaniments, then serve immediately.
