Dean and Sam, 3.11 Mystery Spot

The Pig 'n a Poke is a breakfast that Dean orders in 3.11 Mystery Spot. It costs $3.99 and looks like one damn tasty meal. He tries ordering it different ways in order to change the day's outcome - his dying - but to no avail.

Pig in a poke is a sausage dish usually served for breakfast. It consists of sausages cooked in a thick batter (a bit like a Yorkshire pudding). It also refers to an expression meaning to buy a pig in a poke is to buy it sight unseen.
