This little one-dish-wonder-brunch is so easy that it requires no ‘normal’ brain power (unfortunately, other functioning senses may be required), so it’s the perfect cure to that blinding weekend hangover you’ve got 😉
Recipe for 2 broken bodies. Increase quantity for extra bodies or bigger hangovers.
EXTRA BITS: If you’re the eggy type, crack some eggs over the final mixture right before it goes in the oven, and you’ve got yourself a dish made in yolkee heaven. OR, if you don’t have an oven because you put some firecrackers* in it for some reason, throw all in a pan… Hangover be gone!
*do not try this at home. I never have myself, but the weekend is young.
Follow the steps, eat, lounge, recover!
Good quality bread will cure thee better, but whatever takes your fancy
3 medium sized potatoes
12 (or more) button mushrooms
Half a medium sized onion
Sausages of choice (number to be deemed by the belly)
2/3 tablespoons of olive oil
Salt, pepper, mixed herbs and dried or fresh chillies
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas mark 6.
Slice 3/4 medium sized potatoes into 1cm sized slices. Mind the hungover fingers! Throw them into a pan, cover with water, add a pinch of salt (something my Grandmother used to do), cover and bring to the boil for approx. 5/7 minutes. While that’s simmering in the pot, finely chop half a medium sized onion into slices.
Having used your trusty phone to set a timer for the potatoes (you are hungover don’t forget), you’ll (by now) have drained them off and mentally willed yourself not to cover them in butter and dive in head first.
Grab yourself a baking tray, and haphazardly layer the potatoes in the pan, then add the onions and mushrooms. Lovingly splash all ingredients with generous ‘glugs’ of olive oil. I tend to ‘eyeball’ this stage but if you’re feeling like you need direction, 2/3 tablespoons should do it.
Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, pepper, mixed herbs, and dried chillies (or fresh) to kick start your body back to health.
NOTE: I put my (veggie) sausages in the same tray at this stage to cook everything together.
Cook in the oven for approximately 12/15 mins, depending on your oven and sausage requirements 😉 (please avoid meat sweats by cooking your sausages correctly).
Serve from the pan with some beautiful bread, fresh coffee, and the love of a Corkonian Irish Woman 😉
