This year for my birthday, my friend Tash got me a cookbook. It’s not your typical cookbook, it’s a cookbook geared to be great hangover foods. I figured I would make my first recipe from the book on a weekend morning after spending the previous night out.
The recipe I had tagged was for Anna and Tommy’s Mexican Breakfast. I really don’t know who Anna and Tommy are but that didn’t stop me from trying out their breakfast!
To start with I heated some oil in a skillet over medium high heat. I added chopped onion and cooked until it started to brown.
Then I added a smashed clove of garlic and minced hot peppers and let that cook for another minute.
Chopped Kabasa was added to the skillet and cooked for around 3 minutes.
Then chopped tomatoes were added and heat was reduced to medium low and left to cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
During this time I fried an egg (poorly I might add, the egg didn’t flip right so it took on an odd shape) and I heated a tortilla. To assemble I took the tortilla and placed the tomato/sausage mixture in the center of it. I topped with jarred hot peppers (and was also suppose to top with shredded cheese).
Then I rolled the tortilla up and placed my fried egg on top.
The Verdict: Breakfasts like these I don’t feel need formal recipes. I think anyone can do similar with a variation of ingredients customized to their tastes. Personally, if I am going to have a breakfast wrapped up in a tortilla I would prefer to eat it with my hands than have to cut it up with a fork and knife. But all the favors were tasty together. And if this is a good recipe for a hangover, I don’t know, since I wasn’t hungover. But I will say if I was hungover I probably wouldn’t want to go through the effort of making this breakfast.
