Air Fried, Fried

The Lumberjack- Sausage Stuffed Air Fried Biscuit Donut/Doughnut Recipe

Holy moly there are a lot of flavors in this donut.  Last night, I was staying at my parents house and asked my dad what kind of donuts he wanted me to make for breakfast.  He said that I need to make my usual air fried biscuit donut, but this time, stuff it with sausage and put maple frosting on top.  This reminded me of a breakfast sandwich that we used to get on the Cape together, so I called it “the Lumberjack”.  Enjoy!




Ingredients Needed:

  • 2 cans of Pillsbury Grands! biscuit (not flaky)
  • 1 package frozen or fresh sausage links
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


Sausage Stuffed Biscuit Donut

  1. Take one can of biscuit dough and flatten out all 8 biscuits so they are about half the thickness of usual
  2. While you are flattening the biscuits above, cook the sausage links
  3. Cut up the sausages into small pieces and spread them on each flattened biscuit (see above)
  4. Take the second can of biscuits and flatten those out as well.
  5. Place on plain flattened biscuit on top of each biscuit with sausage on it and pinch the sides together to make one large biscuit
  6. Using a 1 inch cookie cutter or a bottle cap (this is what I do), cut the centers out of the donuts
  7. Air fry donuts for about 4-5 minutes on 375 degrees, or until golden brown on all of the edges (Note: I put my donuts on parchment paper and then in the air fryer, so they don’t stick to the basket

Maple Glaze

  1. In a sauce pan, whisk together:
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar
    • 3 tbsp butter
    • 1/4 cup maple syrup
    • 3 tbsp milk
  2. Whisk for about 2 minutes until combined, then remove from heat
  3. Once the mixture is mixed and removed from heat, add in approx. 1 cup of powdered sugar (or more for thicker frosting)
  4. Once donuts are cooled, dip the tops of the donuts in frosting
  5. Top with crispy bacon if desired (make sure to do this before the frosting hardens!)
