5 Hangover Breakfasts You'll Thank Us For Tomorrow
If there's any day that might start with the symptoms of a hangover, it's tomorrow: the night after New Year's Eve. In preparation for tomorrow's wake-up call, plan on a breakfast start that will ease you into 2016, no matter how you're feeling. There might not be any scientific evidence that food actually cures a hangover, but these recipes for filling hangover breakfast sandwiches and made-for-morning comfort-food casseroles (plus probably some coconut water and ibuprofen) will put you on the road to recovery after a night of indulgence.
Reimagine the tried-and-true brunch mainstay in sandwich form with an Over-Easy Eggs Benedict Sandwich. It takes a few liberties, like frying the egg instead of poaching, and nixing from-scratch hollandaise for mayo, and you'll thank your lucky stars for these shortcuts tomorrow.
Comforting and super-filling, this Breakfast Sausage and Egg Burger is a hangover cure if we've ever seen one. Instead of forming burger patties, use flavor-packed breakfast sausage as the meat element, and pile each one high with a fried egg, cheddar cheese and all the fixings.

If you're already anticipating a hangover situation in the morning, assemble your remedy before you even start celebrating. Setting up this Chocolate-Banana Pancake Casserole ahead makes it possible for the pancakes to soak up the custard fully before the dish is baked.
The Bacon, Egg & Cheese Pancake Sandwich has everything you could possibly want in the morning, all in one bite: salty bacon, plush pancakes and creamy cheese. Use frozen buttermilk-style pancakes as a shortcut to making pancakes from scratch.
For those who can't decide whether to go sweet or savory at brunch, this French Toast Croque Madame Casserole strikes just the right balance. It doesn't need time to soak, so be sure to bake it in the morning right before you want to eat it.
Yup, you'll be thanking us tomorrow.
