The perfect Irish fry and best hangover food.

Updated on March 26, 2013
Cast your vote for Irish Fry

Hangover food is always greasy.

The morning after the mental drinking session, and the big question isn't "oh my god what did I do last night?" if like me you die of the worst hangovers you will be thinking - Do I eat? can I eat? what will I eat?

The best answer is Yes, Yes and a massive, greasy, runny fry. There is nothing more proven to help your hangover the next day.

Here is my view of the best option.

Ulster Fry

Ulster Fry. NICE....

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: 1 person (depending on your preference of portion)

Ingredients

  • 2 - 3 Pork or Beef Sausage
  • 2 Free range large eggs
  • 1 Tin Baked beans
  • 1 Soda farl or soda bread
  • 3 Slices of back bacon
  • 2 Poato bread
  • 4 Slices of black or white pudding

Soda Bread

Instructions

  1. To start you will need to get a large frying pan and put some cooking oil on it. Alternatively you can use olive oil but cooking oil is usually better. Turn the heat up full and once warm enough add your sausages.
  2. Once your sausages have been cooking for about 5 minutes take one of your eggs, break it into a bowel and give it a bit of a whisk. Cut your soda bread in half length wise and cover each side in the egg. Now stick them into your frying pan with your sausages.
  3. Make sure to keep turning both your sausages and soda bread. Add your bacon now and after about 5 mintues your soda bread should be nicely cooked on both sides, remove them to a plate and stick the plate in your grill to keep warm.
  4. Take your potato bread and do the exact same as your soda bread, covering in egg and putting into your pan, again this should take about 5 mintues to cook.
  5. About 5 mintues after adding your bacon it should be ready, remove it and put it on the warm plate with your soda bread. Before you take out your potato bread stick in the pan a few thick slices of black or white pudding.
  6. At this stage your sausages should be well cooked through, take them out and leave on the plate with the other items. Now is the time to stick your baked beans in the micorwave for 2 minutes. Once you have your sausages and bacon done put a bit more oil in your pan and break open your last egg, cook on both sides for only 1 minute each.
  7. Remove your black/white pudding and egg from the pan to your warm plate and that is you.

Enjoy

This is your basic Ulster fry but everyone will have their own twist on it, like adding fried tomotoes or mushrooms but I think this is the best.

Always remember to use plenty of red sauce or alternatively HP sauce depending on your preference and the final item has to be a massive mug of coffee with as many teaspoons of sugar in it as you can take.

You will find that after 10 minutes of finishing your fry off that your hangover will be more or less gone and your stomach a lot larger....

      I'll just leave some of the Facebook comments here and be on my way then. I didn't want to beevlie that you guys would make a joke about one of your actors being attacked, and I'm unimpressed that you chose to do so. I like your light-hearted spreading of joy far better. This was neither fun nor entertaining, it was just hurtful, concerning, and ultimately disappointing. I fell for it but I was actually really apalled by the fact that Jar Jar thought that HE was the victim. I was hoping that he would have got in trouble for being an idiot. The reason the fake funeral was funny was because it was so over the top that there was no it way it would have possibly been staged for real (unless the team was just monumentally stupid). Assault while out on a mission is a very real possibility, especially in a city like New York, where citizens aren't exactly well known for their calm demeanor and willingness to tolerate strangers getting in their face.I've got to fall on the not funny side of this coin you guys do awesome work, but I don't see what's so funny about messages of concern from your fans. I think this was an awful prank to pull. To make it up to those who hated the joke, you guys have to make another improve! One with dancing! After the fact I do think it's funny. Watching it last night I found it was disturbing There's absolutely nothing funny about street crime or violence. This was in the poorest taste. Yea, to go with what everyone else was saying that's really not a smart thing to do let alone cool or funny. Someone could easily have gotten hurt or something. We don't fuck around like that in NY. This just proves how hard it is for a comedic website to pull off an April Fools joke. Not cool guys, I was seriously worried about the guy in the costume. Plus if somebody actually did recognize those three guys they could have called the cops and gotten them into big trouble. I've got not problem with you guys making a scene for laughs, but faking violence in a public place it not a good idea, especially since the news seems to always have stories about bullying and attacks like this. I don't follow the movie/TV/video game violence comparisons. You go into those with something called a willing suspension of disbelief you know it isn't real, that there are stuntmen and precautions being taken and that people are rarely hurt.But, IE builds all their scenes in reality what we see on the videos is usually the real reactions of the people that happen to be part of the prank at the time. It's not unreasonable to think that an actual assault could take place and that's why people are upset it's not that they don't have a sense of humor. It's that they love this group and were worried when they thought a part of the team had been injured. Finding out that IE has manipulated that love for a prank would make anyone upset. Saw this in the morning at about 6:30. Terrible way to start the day and the comments that people posted made me feel even worse. Don't really feel like it fit the spirit of Improv Everywhere. Hope next year's April Fools is better. Seriously though, I hope the team uses all this negative feedback in a positive way. You're an AWESOME team that pulls off some really great stuff. Don't channel that creativity into stunts that make people feel emotionally manipulated. Shows like Punk'd already do that FAR too well. IE is better than that you're all about making people's otherwise ordinary lives a little brighter. Keep doing what we all know you're good at, and leave the tasteless pranks to Kutcher.

      I have spent many a "next day" with a greasing breakfast going down my well-used gullet. Your Ulster Fry looks delicious. Although I love my my Mom with all my heart, she often followed her families way of Irish cooking ...boil the food until there is no more taste, mass or any other tangible characteristic that you would recognize as food.

      I'm thankful that I took after my dear ol' Dad. He was an excellent cook.

      Great hub my friend

      Yeah a lot of my friends prefer Jameson too actually ha! I'm also a fan of Bruichladdich and Glenfiddich when I can afford a sip haha! My old buddy has a family reunion in Indiana where they all drink Jack and eat donuts.

      Thanks Ben.

      Good choice of Whiskey, funny you prefer an Irish whiskey as my favourite would be Jack Daniels.

      I would recommend Jamesons and Black bush as they are both quality whiskeys too.

      This sounds great, I take a multivitamin to help my hangovers. Soda bread is new to me, as is having beans for breakfast though I've heard it's popular in Europe. Up and liked on facebook.

      Can't wait to give this a try, now where's that bottle of Tullamore single malt...

      Hi TToombs08.

      It is all down to your own preference but I have known to stick the odd pancake on too.

      Thanks for your comment.
