John Whaite’s Perfect Hangover Cure

April 10, 2014, Article by Tom in Food, Recipes

Beat that hangover with this delicious recipe from Great British Bake Off winner John Whaite…

Stumbling in from a night out, or awakening the morning after feeling slightly worse for wear, it’s guaranteed that I will need something remedial and rapid. This is the perfect solution.

The innovation of using crisps for speed comes from Omar Allibhoy, and it works wonderfully.

How to make your Super Soaker Spanish Omelette


3 eggs
75g tangy cheese nachos
50g chorizo sausage, chopped into small cubes
2 spring onions, finely chopped
½ tsp salt
½ tsp cracked black pepper
30g manchego cheese, grated
30g green olives, pitted, roughly chopped

Essential Equipment

Small frying pan


  1. Put the frying pan over a medium-high heat and leave to heat up.
  2. Beat the eggs in a small mixing bowl, crush in the nachos and allow to soak for a few minutes.
  3. Meanwhile place the chorizo into the hot pan and allow to heat up, and release its spiced orange juices. When heated through, add the chorizo to the eggs and nachos, along with the spring onions, salt, pepper, cheese and olives. Give it a little stir, then pour back into the pan and heat on one side for about 2 minutes, then flip – carefully – and fry on the other side for 2 minutes more. Serve, as I do when slightly blotto, from the pan.
