Homer’s Breakfast for Mr. Burns


Homer: Hmm…one of these must be a breakfast maker. Well, it’s my job to cook him breakfast, and I’m gonna cook the best damn breakfast he ever ate.
Mr. Burns: [Later] Doughnuts? I told you I don’t like ethnic food!

The Simpsons | Season 7 - Episode 17

Truthfully, I never planned on making Homer’s Breakfast for Mr. Burns since I didn’t want to irradiate my arm or burn my kitchen down. But, this was a request from Reddit and who am I to question the request of an online stranger I’ve never met? To clarify, I made aspects of the Homer’s Breakfast for Mr. Burns but at no point was I in danger, unless you count inhaling burning Corn Flakes as dangerous.




  • Bacon
  • Eggs
  • Toast
  • Corn Flakes
  • Milk


Skewer eggs, bacon and toast and attempt to heat up over flame (note: DON’T do this). Pour milk onto cereal, put out flames. Purchase Lard Lad Doughnuts and call it a day.


Eggs aren’t as difficult to skewer as I thought, although they still made a terrible mess getting their eggy insides all over the place. I was actually surprised by how well everything balanced on the skewer, but at the same time I wasn’t about to try holding this over an open flame.

Speaking of flames, Corn Flakes are somewhat flammable…wait, inflammable means flammable? What a country! Anyway, I did have some success lighting individual Corn Flakes on fire, but once they got going they wouldn’t light the rest of the bowl. I actually found this quite disappointing. Also, milk was not a useful fluid to get the fire going despite what this episode might have you believe.


Cromulence: Inadmissible since I didn’t actually eat anything. But when it comes to choosing a set of teeth, I’ll always go for the fangs.
