With Easter right around the corner, candy is everywhere. More specifically, Cadbury Creme Eggs are everywhere, and it’s a beautiful reality. But instead of opting for the straight-out-of-the-wrapper eating tactic this year, we advise you take the egg-in-hole toast route.
Crazy? Absolutely. Genius? 100%. Serious Eats came up with this festive dish that features a melty Cadbury Crème Egg placed right inside a slice of pound cake, making for the best (and easiest) Easter dessert – ever. I highly recommend you still take advantage of the chocolate abundance, and make this breakfast gone wild.
To create this deliciousness, all you have to do is cut a hole in a slice of thick pound cake, place half a Cadbury Creme Egg inside and heat on a butter-laden griddle. It’s a masterpiece, really.
Even if you butter it up, standard toast can get boring after a while. So if you’re in the market to up your breakfast game, then check out this Darth Vader Toaster.
The contraption by License 2 Play does exactly what its name implies – it toasts an image of the Dark Lord on your bread, because there’s no better way to start the day than with a little extra evil. The best part is you don’t have to do anything special. Simply toast a slice per usual, and a minute or two later, Darth Vader is on that bread ready to be slathered in peanut butter, jelly or whatever else you fancy.

A toaster is an easy appliance to have a terrible relationship with. It can burn your bread and, if you have accident-prone friends like I do, it can burn down your house. Now, it can even disrespect you and spit your toast onto the floor.
This douchey toaster has the nerve to lob your toast like a pass to Blake Griffin. Why would anyone make a toaster that points forward instead of upward you ask? Because lowkey troll, probably. If you happen to be the unlucky owner of one of these unfortunate toasters, we suggest trading in your oven mitt for a catcher’s mitt, or putting a net over the top like a Wile-E Coyote trap.
Sometimes I wonder how journalism works in Japan. In J-school (the first J), you’re taught each story has to answer the five basic W’s: who, what, when, where and why, but after a while, isn’t it easier to stop asking and simply understand it’s “because Japan, that’s why”?
Japanese mail order company Felissimo is currently selling sleeping bags that look like bread and pastries and omelets for reasons probably having to do with Japan’s obvious obsession with cute things and less to do with a latent national desire to transform into desserts (we’re guessing).
Guaranteed to envelop you in a “feeling of happiness and fluffy,” these sleeping breads come in four different varieties, from toast pillows with red “jam” blankets to a swirly cornet sleeping bag with a brown “chocolate” blanket.
The entire four-piece collection is now available from Felissimo for ¥16,000 ($162).
Now if only they came out with a “Cronut” edition.

The movie was semi-forgettable, but remained viable because of the subtle yet obviously apparent beauty of Paz Vega AND the late-night, ingredient-enhanced BLT that Adam Sandler’s character John Clasky made in his home kitchen. Thanks for the inspiration Billy Madison, but we decided to step our game up. Here’s what you’ll need for two sandwiches, because you’ll want someone else there to share your ambrosia. And to steal their bacon.
The Spanglish Sandwich With A Lot More Bacon
- 8 Strips of Bacon (16 strips, if you’re a man about it)
- 4 Slices of Sourdough Bread
- Enough Butter
- Enough Pesto
- Enough Mayonnaise
- 2 Slices of Gouda
- 2 Slices of Muenster
- 8 oz. of Smoked Turkey Breast (16 oz., if you want a 1/2 lb per sandwich)
- 2 Eggs
- 2 Leafs of Butter Lettuce
- 1 Tomato
- 1 Avocado
Step by step instructions? Oh, we got you. With visuals? We’re tight!
1. Fry Bacon. Lots of it. With lots of oil. And don’t microwave it you nincompoop, you need the oil later.
2. Butter yo’ bread on the OUTSIDE. Buttering your bread on the inside, will make it fall apart once you add additional condiments.
3. For this part you need a broiler, and if don’t have one TOO BAD. You can also use a toaster oven or place the oven on high heat to like 450 until the edges start to brown. I learned that trick from my man Nick at Macheesmo.
5. Yes, I know I skipped 4, I happen to loathe the number so I skipped it. So there. Place Mayo and Pesto to taste on the inside of the bread.
6. This is what makes the sandwich really gouda. Add cheese to each side of the bread.
7. Put the roasted turkey on top of one side of the bread. Place it into the broiler until the cheese starts to darken and melt.
8. Place (2) eggs into the bacon grease. Make sure to spoon some of the grease on top of the eggs, so you don’t have to flip the egg and risk a potential YOLK MASSACRE.
9. Add the bacon and the tomato. Steal the bacon from your friend’s sandwich, add it to yours.
10. Add butter, lettuce and avocado. You’re so close.
11. Scoop the egg from the frying pan.
