Drank too much tequila — or vodka or rum or all three? We feel your pain … and your hunger.

Whether you’re feeling a little buzzy right now or dealing with the effects of last night’s bender, you’re probably craving some deliciously bad-for-you food. Not to mention that the fastest way to feel better (aside from drinking about a gallon of water) is to get some food in your stomach. Time to inhale one of these five greasy concoctions.

Mac ‘n’ Cheese Pie with Bacon Lattice Top

Cheesy pasta might not be the first thing you reach for after you’ve been drinking, but add bacon to the mix, and it’s a done deal. If your fine motor skills aren’t currently up to the task of weaving a bacon lattice top, just add in some crumbled bacon or, in a pinch, packaged bacon bits.

The Doughnut Cheesesteak Burger

We shared this calorie-filled creation from Philadelphia’s PYT restaurant earlier this summer. To create your own, simply stack a burger patty, chopped steak and Cheez Whiz (or provolone) between a split glazed doughnut. Goodbye, hangover!

French Fry Pizza

This might be the greatest food mash-up of all time. The key to this genius pie is the cheese: A liberal helping of shredded mozzarella helps hold the fries together in a “crust.” No more deciding between french fries and pizza when you’re craving something bad for you!

Hangover Breakfast Sandwich

What’s a better way to do steak and eggs? Put it on a pretzel bun, of course. This hangover sandwich gets a little bit of spice from a cilantro chimichurri sauce, but you could always sub in sriracha or your favorite hot sauce.

Pizza Cupcakes

These were one of our favorite pizza hacks — can you blame us? Before you go out for the night, bake a batch of “cupcakes” and pop them in the freezer. When you get home, just pop a couple (or a couple dozen) in the microwave or toaster oven. Mmmm….pizza.

I’d try all the recipes even if I didn’t drink the night before.

If I ate crap like this, I wouldn’t be able to fit through a door. Not to mention, the last thing you want on your stomach after a bender is something greasy–ugh!

Flo on

Crappy food, who eats that.??

Followed by a visit to the ER…. Yuk

Eating this would only be excusable if you were still drunk. I get craving salt the next day but you don’t have to eat everything on the heart attack list to feel better.

Menudo, Breakfast of Champions.

GROSS. They all look unhealthy and disgusting, and besides…. I don’t go out “drinking”. Who would want to eat anything after being drunk? PASS.

Amylita on

Who could make all of that with a hangover?! Lattice bacon, really, that takes a clear thinking mind.

The Leveler itself is slow, however, and not particularly durable. I hope this article will give you a little heads up knowledge on what is out there and not completely scare you into a world where the internet is bad. Have you ever imagined if you had a mountain of dollars to burn like American celebrities.
