Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger: Today, state fairs. Tomorrow?

The Krispy Kreme cheeseburger – that’s right, a cheeseburger between doughnut halves – reportedly got its start when a chef in Decatur, Ga., came up with the idea. The chef, Chandler Goff, named it the Luther Burger.

Then in 2006, an independent baseball team, the Gateway Grizzlies, began selling its own version at their baseball park in Sauget, Ill.

That’s when the doughnut/burger combination began to attract all kinds of attention. Sports Illustrated, ESPN, CNN, and others reported on the Grizzlies’ burger. Paula Deen, of TV cooking fame, added an egg to the Luther Burger and loved it.
