Kitchen Overlord - Captain America's Breakfast Shield Illustrated Recipe

While Cap spent decades on ice, American breakfasts changed. When not fighting Ultron, it’s up to the rest of the team to introduce him to a new take on eggs and toast for a new millennium with this blatantly patriotic Huevos Rancheros.

Avengers, Assemble:

  • One tortilla
  • One egg
  • Four drops of blue food coloring
  • 1 tsp water
  • 2 tbsp refried beans
  • 4 tbsp salsa
  • 1 slice mozzarella sandwich cheese
  • 2-3 tbsp shredded mozzarella cheese


Pour your water and food coloring into a shallow bowl. Gently crack the egg inside and swirl it around until the white turns blue.

Add a little butter to a skillet. Put a circular mold/cookie cutter in the middle and pour in your newly blue egg.

Use the tip of a finger to keep the yolk centered until the egg sets.

While the egg cooks, forge the base of your shield in the heat of a skillet by toasting your tortilla.

Top it with a hearty layer of refried beans.

Smother the whole mess with delicious salsa.

Once your egg is fully cooked, carefully position it in the middle of the shield.

Use a star shaped cookie cutter on a slice of mozzarella cheese. Carefully place the star over the egg yolk.

Circle the blue egg with a ring of shredded mozzarella.

Welcome to the 21st century, Steve. On behalf of your tastebuds, you’re welcome.
