Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich

lazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich: You know, when Daniel Burnham came up with his line about "make no little plans," this is probably the breakfast sandwich he had in mind. The audacity! Dunkin' Donuts is now serving a breakfast sandwich on a glazed doughnut  sliced lengthwise like a bagel to hold a fried egg dashed with black pepper and bacon slices, handed warm across the counter in a waxed-paper pouch, the latest entry in the taste trend of sweet plus savory. And? Sweet wins out. A warm glazed doughnut is a potent thing, and its sweetness pretty much overwhelms the egg, which is on the thin side. This thing is a bit heavy and very much a doughnut. But it's not the caloric bomb you might think; at 360 calories, it's midway between the new McDonald's Egg White Delight McMuffin (250) and a Bacon, Egg & Cheese McGriddle (460). It remains a bold plan though. <i>At Dunkin' Donuts stores; $2.49, more information at dunkindonuts.com</i><br>
