EDMONTON – It’s covered in maple icing. It’s topped with tons of bacon and crunchy graham pieces. It’s even drizzled with cream cheese to “make it pretty.” So what is it? Why, a donut of course.
Edmonton’s Judd Mah is the inventor of ‘The Lumberjack.’ The bacon-inspired donut was chosen out of tens of thousands of entries to be one of the four finalists in this year’s Tim Hortons Duelling Donuts contest.

“The inspiration for the Lumberjack was bacon,” exclaimed Mah, in a video posted to YouTube by Tim Hortons. “The more bacon you can consume at any time of your day will make your day that much better.
“Who couldn’t use more bacon? People love bacon.”
The bacon-topped savory treat is up against three other donuts: the Ice Cream Sundae, the Big Canadian Red and the Love REESE’S® To Pieces. All three are invented by Ontarians.
The Edmonton man says his maple glazed apple cider donut will satisfy the hard working early riser who won’t settle for a fru-fru donut. He describes it as Sunday morning on a donut.
“The Lumberjack breakfast is the biggest breakfast you can get so I wanted to make a big donut.”
