Hangover breakfast pie

on April 1, 2013


This is the other recipe I wanted to share from the Hairy Bikers Perfect Pies cookbook. I do adapt it quite a bit though – but what I put in depends on what’s in the fridge and how hungover I am. This is great if you’ve had lots of people on a night out and they’re staying over and you need to feed them but are too hungover to do much. It also works if there’s just 2 of you – just reduce the quantities.

This really does help hangovers, although I can’t promise a total cure – if you’ve had a large one, nothing beats a day on the sofa, but this makes that sofa day more bearable.

This is another no pastry pie. It’s got potatoes in it instead. And this is my version, my favourite one, not the Hairy Bikers one.

Hangover breakfast pie

Serves 4

  • 850g potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 8 sausages
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 10 mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 green chilli (optional)
  • 2 cans baked beans
  • handful of chopped fresh parsley
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius
  2. Grill the sausages until browned on all sides. Remove from the grill and set aside.
  3. Boil the potatoes with a little salt until cooked through – about 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, heat 1 tsp of oil in a large frying pan, on a medium heat and fry the onion until is starts to cook, then add the garlic, mushrooms and chilli if using. Fry gently until the mushrooms release their juices and hte onions are starting to brown.
  5. Tip them into a deep sided baking dish and top with the sausages.
  6. Pour the cans of baked beans over the sausages and sprinkle over the parsley.
  7. Put the remaining oil in the frying pan and fry the potatoes until they get brown spots and burnt bits on them.
  8. Tip the potatoes over the top of the beans and bake in the oven for about 20-30 minutes, or until hot all the way through the potatoes are crispy.
  9. Serve immediately with your favourite sauces and feel the hangover receed.
