While Breaking Bad’s Walter White and Jesse Pinkman may be better known for their skills at cooking meth, there’s another product in which they specialize: rum-spiced pumpkin pie. Such is the premise of a new parody by comedy team Barely Political, in which the dynamic drug-dealing duo host their own cooking show, “Breaking Bread.”
There’s a lot for Breaking Bad fans to be thankful for here, but we’re particularly fond of its pitch-perfect take on the relationship between Heisenberg and the sullen young Jesse. Walter, of course, begins by forcing the two through a full cleaning montage, but it’s not long before the cooking segment spirals into a life-and-death situation. Topped off with an appearance by a drunken Skyler, it’s the perfect way for any Breaking Bad fan to prepare for their Thanksgiving meal.
