Slice each donut in half as if you were slicing a bagel for a breakfast sandwich. Fill each donut with 1 poached or soft-boiled egg, 1 tbsp Fresh Salsa, 1 tbsp shredded cheese, and 1/2 serving Refried Beans. Serve each person two "sandwiches" (so, in total, each person will have 2 "donuts", 2 eggs, 2 tbsp Fresh Salsa, 2 tbsp shredded cheese, and 1 serving Refried Beans).
