The Dexter


I’m a huge fan of Dexter. It’s pretty much the best show on television, and it seems like every season gets exponentially better.

The opening credits are also really great, and for a couple of years I’ve been wanting to put together a brunch menu based on the activities you see Dexter performing in the credits.

So, this morning I finally assembled all the ingredients.

I squeezed some fresh blood orange juice (if you want to do this for two, I’d suggest 6-8 oranges), and brewed what I’ve been laughingly referring to as “Dark Passenger” Roast (just plain dark roast coffee).

The aftermath was not unlike a scene from the show. Check out the splatter!

In the opening credits, you also see Dex enjoying some ham and eggs, with a reddish sort of sauce. I scored both sides of a couple of ham steaks (I went for honey, not maple glaze), and seared them in a hot pan.

I held the ham steaks in a 300 degree oven, and deglazed the pan with a tablespoon of bourbon and 3 tablespoons of water. Then I whisked in 3 tablespoons of hot sauce, and reserved the resulting pan sauce in a warm ramikin.

I rinsed the pan, melted a little butter in, made some eggs sunny side up, and plated the eggs and ham with some of the sauce.

It was pretty excellent.
