Among the cream puffs and everything you can get on a stick, food at the Wisconsin State Fair is a dish best served over the top. Meet 2010’s early favorite: the Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger.

Sold at the Machine Shed tent at the fair, the $5 burger features the normal patty and melted cheese, but with a Krispy Kreme doughnut for a bun. For an extra dollar, patrons can top the burger with last year’s big hit: chocolate-covered bacon on a stick (furthering the debate on whether the new dish is dinner or dessert).

The calorie count: 1,000, according to Nathan Morrissey, executive chef at the Machine Shed.

What’s the burger’s appeal?

“Well, let’s see,” Dave Owens of Appleton said at the fair’s opening day Thursday. “It’s a doughnut with chocolate-covered bacon and a cheeseburger put together. How could you go wrong?”

What I like about this unsanctioned burger is that you can make it at home… and I will.
