Most of our our podcast episodes are scheduled ahead of time. We know who we are going to speak with, we do a little background research, and have a list of topics to discuss. This episode was just not that kind of episode.
As soon as we bit into the first bit of a breakfast sandwich at Tiger Deaux-Nuts Baton Rouge, we knew we had to learn the story behind this little bit of donut heaven in Louisiana.
The Best Breakfast Sandwich in Baton Rouge
Jeff of Tiger Deaux-Nuts explained just what was on one of the best breakfast sandwiches we’ve ever eaten. First off, it included a special sausage, called boudin, and it was sandwiched between two slices of their famous donuts. It was so tasty I didn’t even need to add ketchup! Locals say it makes a “mockery of the McGriddle.”
The Donuts at Tiger Deaux-Nuts Baton Rouge
Jeff was a man with a dream. A donut dream. On this week’s episode of our food travel podcast, not only did we talk about a locally famous breakfast sandwich, but we learned how he came up with the idea of creating an artisan donut shop in Baton Rouge.
And, what’s with the name? What is a deaux-nut anyway? It’s the Cajun way of spelling donut. Well, maybe not officially, but it’s a Cajun play on words. Trust us.
