Fresh Bloody Mary

Kellogg's Breakfast: Take a look at the OJ-colored flesh and juice, and you'll know where the name comes from. The 1-pound beefsteak has lots of juice and few seeds, which makes it perfect for squeezing. Bright and tart, it might even inspire you to change your breakfast routine.
