Happy New Year and a hangover breakfast

Happy New Year to all my blogging chums! Last night we followed our favoured New Year's Eve pattern and stayed home, eating something good and watching a movie. This very sensible approach means that I have no need for a restorative breakfast to help deal with a hangover, but when I made this (yesterday morning, as it happens) I immediately saw the potential.

Hangover Eggs (serves 2 delicate heads)

4 crumpets
knob of butter
4 eggs
pickled chilli slices

Toast the crumpets under the grill. When they are hot but not crisp, top with the bacon jam and put back under the grill until the jam melts and begins to bubble. Fry the eggs in the butter. Top the bacon-laden crumpets with the eggs and garnish with slices of pickled chilli, or hot sauce as you prefer.

Eat, accompanied by copious quantities of fruit juice and coffee. Do not be tempted by a bloody mary, this is not the time.

Happy New Year, hope it's a good year for you both! Glad you don't need the hangover cure, although it looks as if it would work well.

Happy New Year! Glad to hear you had a good evening and that a hangover cure was not required, although it looks tasty all the same.
