A Killer Dexter Breakfast

-A Killer Dexter Breakfast-

Every time I watch Dexter, the intro makes me so hungry (In a sadistic kind of way). Delicious pan fried ham steak, eggs sunny side up, and blood orange juice! The show inspired me to make an easy and delicious breakfast that you too can make at home and eat any time of day... hey you may want to eat it during the show! Because I am a dork I was cooking while the Dexter theme song was playing! Rofl! This recipe is definitely sweet and savory, and I always like to add a little hot sauce for more authenticity, along with a little kick!

Cook Time: 30 Minutes
Level: n00b
Serves 1

The Goods:
-2 Eggs
-Salt and Pepper
-One bone in ham steak cooked (You can find this in the pork section at your local grocery store)
-7 Table spoons butter
-5 Table spoons brown sugar
-3 Blood Oranges (If they're in season) or Pre squeezed blood orange juice from Trader Joe's
   ~If you cant find either, I reccomend getting orange juice and cranberry juice and mix together for a yummy drink.

-Pull out two frying pans, one for the eggs, and another for the ham steak.
-You'll want to cook the ham steak first since eggs only take 5 minutes.
-Heat one large skillet over medium heat, brown ham on both sides, drain. Remove ham.
-In the same skillet, melt 5 tablespoons butter; stir in brown sugar. Return ham to skillet; cook until heated through, turning often.
-While Ham steak is cooking, heat up other skillet on low heat. 
-Drop the remainder 2 tablespoons butter to melt.
-Crack both eggs on each side of the skillet.
-Season with salt and pepper.
-Continue cooking on low heat until egg whites are set completely. (make sure you keep an eye on your ham steak.)
-Spoon melted butter over egg yolks.
-Continue cooking until yolks begin to thicken, but not harden.
-Place Ham and Eggs on a plate.
-Pour yourself a glass of juice.
-Enjoy your killer breakfast.. ;-)

Fabled French Toast

Something magical just happened in my kitchen. Yes, Fabled French Toast! This is an amazing sweet, savory, crunchy, soft, recipe of what is now going to be your favorite breakfast. And who says you cant eat breakfast any time of day? Be prepared for your taste buds to get pwned!

Serving: 6 - 8 Cook 
Time: 45 Minutes 
Level: n00b 

The Goods

6 large eggs 
5 tablespoons sugar 
2 cups heavy cream 
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup butter 
1 (16 ounce) box Cap'n Crunch & Berries cereal 
1 loaf French Toast (thick cut bread) 
Powdered Sugar 
*Optional* Fresh Berries (Strawberries,Black Berries, Blueberries) 


Pour Cap'n Crunch & Berries into a gallon-size ziplock bag and crush to a course meal - make sure to have a few good size pieces in the mix. Pour into a 9x13 pan in order to dredge properly.

Combine eggs, sugar, cream, vanilla, and spices in a large bowl. It will have the consistency of custard.

Soak each slice of Thick Bread in wet ingredients, 30 seconds each side. Be sure the edges are moist, too.

Dredge in Cap'n Crunch, lightly press onto each side, and around the crust. Place on parchment paper until all slices are coated. Heat 2 tbs. butter in large skillet, then gently place slices in pan; two at a time.

Cook three minutes per side. Place on a plate, sprinkle with powdered sugar, and glaze with syrup!

*Optional* Top with your favorite fresh berries.
