Dealing with the after effects of a hangover is not nearly as much fun as the action which got the hangover rolling in the first place. If it’s Saturday or Sunday (or Tuesday) morning and you need to relieve the stress on your head and in your gut, consider the following list of sure fire hangover cure foods.
Hangover Cure: Tater Tots: Fried foods and grease are the perfect combination for a heavy duty hangover. Some have said that the only way to go for hangovers is the crispiest tater tots you can find; other more nuanced, progressive voices have pointed to tater tots cooked in white truffle oil or sea salts. Make sure to slather your tater tots in plenty of dipping sauce to level off even the most obscene hangover; if ketchup isn’t really your thing anymore, try honey mustard of for an even more ritzy hangover you can’t beat garlic aioli. Fancy!
Hangover Cure: Poached Eggs: If your hangover needs have extended far into the morning hours you might wish to consider an egg entrée. Even for folks who have to dive into the late night, 24 hour diner type establishment, they can usually get a poached egg entrée. Try your poached eggs paired with a lean slab of ham and of course some kind of a potato side-dish just to hold your exotic eggs down.
Hangover Cure: Reuben Sandwich: Some have said that they can’t get out of their hangover slump without Thousand Island dressing. While I’m not sure if that’s entirely true, the real deal about a Reuben is that it’s got not just thousand island, but also sauerkraut, corned beef, Swiss cheese, and rye bread. I think it might be the rye/Swiss combination which always makes my pounding migraine feel better; the Reuben (paired with some really salty sweet potato fries) is a hangover staple in my camp.
Hangover Cure: Chicken Philly: Here’s one which many may not consider for their hangover relief; a chicken Philly sub the real cheese for some cheese whiz! If you think that’s not bad enough, there is one derivation of this which I have seen which has not just cheese whiz but bacon, jalapenos, and ranch dressing! Gross!
Hangover Cure: Breakfast Burrito: Sometimes you have a hangover and you just have to go the full Monty. Getting a breakfast burrito is sort of a roll of the dice in my experience because there is just as good a chance that you could be wearing the remnants of said dish as digesting them. But for some folks the combination of eggs, cheese, onions, peppers, black beans, and sour cream is just the ticket. If you’re really feeling daring add into this mixture ham, bacon, sausage, shrimp, or some really spicy salsa and you could be the hangover breakfast champion your mother always knew you would be.
This list may not work for everyone but this list does include five hangover staples which have worked for many hangovers in the past.
