1. The British are so good at hangover cures we invented a whole meal around them: the fry-up.

Greasy, salty, and extremely large. Most things are better after a fry-up.

2. But let's not forget the humble bubble and squeak.

What's not to love about fried mashed potato in the morning? This perfect ingredient should 100% feature in more breakfasts.

3. And for when you're in a hurry, a bacon sandwich can sort most things out.

It has to be on very soft white bread.

4. Ham, egg, and chips is a great all-day hangover cure.

Salty and so comforting.

5. Beans on toast will banish most symptoms and can also be made when you're not ready to handle a frying pan yet.

6. When things get serious a Lucozade can get you to a state where you're a functioning human again.

And as a bonus it reminds you of getting to stay home from school.

7. The best hungover lunch has to be the beer-and-a-burger deal from Wetherspoon's.

It can also come with a Coke if you're not ready to handle a hair of the dog yet.

8. Or a simple burger from a burger van is sure to make that lingering headache fade away.

A thin meat patty, plasticky cheese, and loads of fried onions, all in the softest bap.

9. A sausage sarnie is a luxurious breakfast treat when you've gone too hard the night before.

The sausages have to have been cut lengthways or it's just a shit hotdog.

10. A fish finger sandwich is pretty much the nicest lunch you can have, and also you probably have the ingredients already in your freezer.

Not leaving the house is a huge bonus when it comes to hangover food.

Many a sausage roll has been grabbed at a train station and saved what could have been a very painful long journey.

13. A carton of Ribena straight out of the fridge is the most refreshing drink.
