    Yummy but they are called Luther Burgers and the ones in the pick have the donut wrong! it should be served sugar side in. The creation of the Luther Burger is a bit of an urban legend but it is widely accepted that it was invented at Mulligan’s bar in Decatur, Georgia on a day when the cook ran out of hamburger buns and decided to use two donuts instead. Its creator named the sandwich ‘Luther Burger’ after R&B legend Luther Vandross, who reportedly enjoyed the sandwich; some rumors claim that Vandross himself invented his namesake burger. The Luther burger name has stuck since then but the creation is also referred to as the Donut Burger. The owner of Mulligan’s bar, Chandler Goff, has sold the rights to the Luther Burger to the Atlanta Braves baseball team, who will begin selling them in 2006 or 2007. So only the Atlanta Braves can sell a burger named Luther Burger. Some versions of the Luther Burger are made with two donuts, at other times a single donut is cut in half and grilled after the meat has been cooked separately; the donut halves are placed around the meat glazed-side-in and the whole sandwich is flattened on the grill and cooked briefly to allow for somewhat less messy consumption. They often include cheese and/or bacon, but normally no vegetables or condiments. from - http://www.cheese-burger.net/stories/doughnut_luther_burger.html
