On a recent episode of NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me, butter goddess Paula Deen gives some backstory to her Lady's Brunch Burger that features doughnuts-for-buns, bacon, and a fried egg. Why doughnuts?

Bless you, Paula.
She also says that this burger has a catch: "It's only one serving per lifetime."
