When you wake up before dawn to make sugary breakfast treats, bizarre things can happen. Dreams invade reality, and donuts become cheeseburgers. That's what happens at Donna's Donuts in Tewksbury, where a chocolate honey-dipped (the "burger") is put inside the shell of a jelly donut (the bun) and slathered with Bavarian cream (the cheese) to create a sweet cheeseburger-lookalike ($1.68 each). People have been driving all the way from Cape Cod to try this new double donut sensation. To keep things entertaining, Donna's just added a meatball sub donut to their cult classics. This stoner mirage consists of donut holes (the meatballs) tucked into a cruller (the sub roll) with cream. Consume with copious amounts of coffee and expand your to-do list. Open Mon-Fri 4 a.m.-6 p.m., Sat 4 a.m.-3 p.m., Sun 7 a.m.-1 p.m. Donna's Donut's, 2106 Main St., Tewksbury. 978-988-0010.
