There are two ways to try and cope with a hangover. The first is to surrender, accept several hours of total misery and try to forget your pain with a combination of tv, moaning and sporadic napping. This is the coward’s way out. Which brings us to Option Two - to fight fire with food.
In this day and age, it’s perfectly easy to reach for your phone and request aid from the nearest fast food restaurant. But, if you really want to get over your current predicament, this solution simply won’t do. For one thing, the wait for relief will almost always be worse than if you hadn’t bothered to begin with. What if your preferred option isn’t even open yet? Evidently, calling for backup is fraught with danger. Seasoned hangover sufferers know, therefore, that the only way to truly beat the beast is to get busy and start cooking themselves.
Fortunately, the Twisted team have the perfect formula for hangover redemption. These eight indulgent recipes have been perfectly crafted to cure even the most hideous of afflictions. Head to the kitchen, fire up the frying pan and get grilling. Here is the ultimate compilation of comfort food hangover cures.
1. Baked Eggs
If there are two things that are going to prompt you to crawl out of bed, it’s beans and eggs. Put them together, and you have mid-morning magic.
2. Bacon Double Cheeseburger Dogs
Bacon, bread, mince and cheese. It’s tough to find four ingredients better able to soak up a stomach-full of excess booze.
3. Garlic Bread Pasta Pie
Carb on carb on carb might not be the basis for a health kick, but it’s definitely going to make you feel more human than a kale smoothie.
4. Pizza Potato Volcanoes
Why waste precious pounds on ordering in a ludicrously expensive delivery, when you could get that same pizzary goodness from what’s lurking in the back of your cupboard?
5. Ultimate Grilled Cheesy Garlic Bread
If you’re feeling under the weather, garlic bread is an absolute lifesaver. It’s only right that you should try and take it to the next level.
6. Ham and Cheese French Toast Roll-Ups
If French toast is the king of indulgent breakfasts, then this dish is it’s crown. Perfect for sharing among an addled crew, or gorging solo if you’re in the mood.
7. Cheesy hash brown breakfast roll
Take everything you would put in the ultimate awesome breakfast and roll it up in strips of crispy potato. Perfection on a plate.
8. Lasagna Subs
If you were forced to name the one Italian pasta dish that could cure almost any ill, it would have to be lasagna. For the hungover chef, stuffing it inside a hot dog bun, just makes so much sense.
There are times when cooking is literally the last thing you want to do when you get up. The thought of all that chopping, slicing, frying and assembling is enough to send anyone with a minor headache straight back to bed. This is a mistake. If you’re armed with one of these recipes, we guarantee waking up will have been worth it.
