Hi, I'm WANGECI .Welcome to my online home where I show you how to cook tasty food and make amazing things for your home

hangover blaster sandwhich

 

I discovered this recipe during my student days as I walked around my home area looking for something to eat. I was too hangovered to go look for a proper fast food and WAY too lazy to cook, so I entered a fish and chips shop and looked for the unhealthiest looking food. I ended up with this steak sandwich, over the years I started making my own the morning after a big night when I’m too lazy to go to go look for food. People always love it. I think the unhealthiness (bad English I know) of it all makes the hangover seem like its going away. My friend Mona thinks that fruit should never be cooked but I  love the  contrast of the sweetness of the pineapple and the hotness of the cayenne pepper. Enjoy.


HANGOVER BLASTER STEAK SANDWICH

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  1. 2 pieces of fillet steak (about 150gms each)
  2. Bunch of coriander/ dhania
  3. ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  4. 1 teaspoon of ground garlic
  5. Salt and pepper to taste
  6. 4 slices of bread
  7. Butter or margarine
  8. 2 slices of pineapple
  9. 4 rashers of bacon
  10. 2 slices of cheese
  11. Mushrooms
  12. Onions
  13. 2 eggs
  14. 3 tablespoons of oil.

Instructions

Mix the oil, garlic, cayenne pepper, half of the dhania, salt and pepper in a bowl. Put the meat in and mix well

Butter the bread on both sides and toast it in a pan. Once one side is browned turn it and place the slice of cheese on the browned so that it can melt. Once all the bread is browned place aside on a plate.

Place the steak on the pan and cook to you liking, about 2 mins on each side of medium done. As this is cooking, place the onions on one side of the same pan, and the mushrooms on another when they start to soften add the rest of the dhania and add a little salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste.

Once the steak is cooked to you liking remove from the pan and place on the already toasted bread on the side that has the cheese. Place the bacon on the pan.

By now the onions and mushrooms are ready so take them out and place on top of the steak. Put the slices of pineapple on the pan and grill till it turns slightly brownish. Remove the bacon place on top of the onions and mushroom then top with the pineapple then the bread.

Pour a LARGE glass of cold juice and enjoy.

Most of these ingredients depend on your taste. If you like onions puts as much as you like if not leave it out, same as all the other ingredients. I did not make mine with the egg as I am not a fun. But it’s great with the egg as well.

* If you do not have fillet steak you can use a normal cut of meat but pound it down with a meat hummer, pestle or rolling pin.

First time I tried this recipe a few years ago I was very skeptical about having a 4 minute microwave pudding. I had never heard of a microwave cake let alone made one but I was pleasantly surprised. This pudding is very rich mainly because of the use if dark cooking chocolate. I LOVE IT, hope you do.

Add the eggs one at a time mixing well after each.

Mix the flour and cocoa into a different bowl and sift flour mixture over butter mixture.

baked-egg-with-spinach

I have never been a big fun of greens let alone spinach. But of late I am discovering new and tasty ways of preparing it that has made it my “new found” green. This meal is pretty healthy (minus the bacon). One serving is about 176 calories, so it’s great for those who are calorie counting. Add a slice of toasted brown bread a little butter and end up with about 300 calories. Anyway as fate would have it on the day I was to try out the recipe I had just gotten some bacon and thought what the hell, so I put some in. It turned out great. This can make a great starter, nice brunch or light meal. I am sorry for the horrible picture quality 🙁 . Enjoy

Baked eggs with spinach, tomatoes and bacon

Yield: 4

Ingredients

  1. 3 bunches of spinach
  2. 1 teaspoons of minced/ crushed garlic
  3. 4 tomatoes
  4. 1 tsp chilli flakes
  5. 8 rashers of bacon
  6. 4 eggs
  7. dhania

Instructions

Heat oven to 200°C.

2. Wash spinach and trim off stalks

3. Put spinach in a pan and cover until it just begins to wilt. Add the garlic and mix well.

4. Divide spinach between four ramekins.

5. Cut up the tomatoes, dhania and bacon

6. Mix the tomatoes, bacon, dhania and chilli flakes, season with salt and pepper.

7. Add this mixture to the ramekins with the spinach.

8. Make a small well in the middle of each dish and crack in an egg.

9. Bake for 12-15 minutes depending on how you like your eggs. I kept mine for about 20 minutes.

NB: if you do not have ramekins you can use an oven proof dish. Follow the same procedure but place the eggs on separate ends of the dish.

-You can also get ramekins at Mr. Price Home. I got mine at less than Ksh 300 each
