DEAR KATE TEMPEST
(a half-ass poem for a half-ass recipe)

You deserve a better recipe than this one.

Your work
Bold, brilliant, beautiful
Old school poetry slam
New school hip-hop.
You deserve a better recipe than this one.

Though to be honest
The lyric inspiration is
Pretty fucking accurate
When it comes to this shit recipe
That you truly don’t deserve.

And yes, this does taste
Like Ketamine For Breakfast
And the effects of both
Are pretty similar
The vague feeling you’re killing yourself
But for some reason
You don’t really care.

You deserved a better recipe than this.

KETAMINE FOR BREAKFAST
Beef hot dog, pimento cheese, scrambled eggs and crushed Takis on a potato bun

2 beef hot dogs
2 eggs
Pimento cheese (see recipe below)
Takis (or Doritos if you live in a Takis free zone)
2 potato rolls
Butter

Open a hot dog bun and spread a generous amount of pimento cheese on the inside. Set aside.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Split the hot dogs lengthwise, leaving a hinge, and place in the hot pan cut side down. Cook a couple of minutes until lightly charred. Flip them and cook two more minutes until lightly charred. Take the hot dogs out of the skillet and place them in the buns. Leave the hot dog grease in the skillet,  add a bit of butter and scramble the eggs. Divide the scrambled eggs between the two hot dogs. Top with crushed Takis or Doritos. Add hot sauce if that’s your thing.

PIMENTO CHEESE
Yield: 1 pint

1/2-pound cheddar cheese
1/3 cup mayo
1 roasted red peppers
1 tablespoon Rock Candy Jalapenos (or pickled jalapenos or pickle relish)
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire
1/3 teaspoon yellow mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Roast the red peppers on the stove, in the oven or – ideally – on a grill with a bit of wood smoke until the skin is charred. Place the roasted peppers in a paper bag (or cover them in a bowl) and let them steam a bit. When cool enough to handle, peel off the skin, remove seed and set aside.

Finely shred the cheddar cheese.

Place the roasted red pepper and jalapeno or relish in a food processor. Chop until they are almost a paste consistency. Add the shredded cheese, mayo, Worcestershire, yellow mustard & spices.

Blend until it forms a spread – occasionally scraping down the sides. It will appear to be a bit thin and watery. FEAR NOT! Place in a storage container and put in the refrigerator several hours or (even better) overnight. Your patience will be rewarded with a true Southern treat!

NOTE: While a food processor is an optimal tool for this recipe, it is not necessary. Just finely shred the cheese and finely mince the red pepper and jalapeno. Mix everything thoroughly with a spoon. You will not get as smooth of a spread but it will still be delicious.
