This photo obtained July 29, 2014 courtesy of Tommy Up, owner of PYT Burger & Bar in Philadelphia shows the Donut Cheesesteak BurgerIt's a marriage made in gourmet burger heaven: a five-ounce, all-beef patty dripping with cheddar cheese and fried onions -- served between a glazed donut. Specialty burger restaurant PYT in Philadelphia says its limited edition Donut Cheesesteak Burger is a novelty take on the city's signature classic, the Philly cheesesteak sandwich. "It definitely has sweet and savory elements to it," executive chef Kim Malcolm told AFP by telephone. On the menu as PYT's "burger of the week," the $15 creation is finding a following, with 13 sold by 12:15 pm Wednesday -- 40 minutes after opening time -- amid social media buzz.
