Heidi’s Monday Morning Hangover Rescue

November 23, 2009

You did it. You drank all the Gimlets you wanted. Yay you.

Is your hangover hanging on?

This oughta cure what ails you – if you can get your Mad-Men wanna-be ass out of bed in the morning. I’m sure it’s what Betty Draper whips up for Don after his gin benders.

Eggs in Toast Cups

[thanks to Better Homes & Gardens Holiday Cook Book circa '59]


Trim crusts from slices of day-old bread [you know that stuff you left on the counter last night when you were making your 2am pb&what-the-hell sammy after tossing back the gin]. Brush both sides with melted butter or margarine. Fit each into a custard cup or muffin-pan cup. Toast in slow oven @ 325 degrees 15 minutes. Remove from oven.

Break an egg into each toast cup [trying not to vomit watching the raw eggs slip and slide into the cups]. Season with salt and pepper and dot with butter. Cover with foil. Return to oven and bake 12 to 15 minutes or till done [call a friend to pick up your McDs quarter-pounder w/cheese in case you can't choke the egg down post-bake]. With spatula, loosen toast from sides of cups. Serve hot.

Why eggs? Why toast? Why in a cup?

Science says eggs contain large amounts of cysteine, the substance that breaks down the hangover-causing toxin acetaldehyde in the liver’s easily depleted glutathione. Eggs help mop up the left-over toxins. The toast helps neturalize the acid in your stomach. The cup? For retro charm.


If you want to add hair-of-the-dog to your hangover brunch, a Bloody Mary is a prime choice. While your blood is dealing with the new alcohol from Mary it ignores the old – plus the vitamins from the tomato juice are a plus.
