Mexican baked eggs are the perfect morning-after treat. Don’t get me wrong, they can take some time to make. But, if you are organized. You can begin the process the day before work and finish them off oh you’re ready to eat.
You are sure to impress your friends with your cooking skills. And this is a healthy alternative to eating bread or pasta to soak up that excess alcohol.
Of course, I advise you to avoid the alcohol completely but there is always the odd special occasion where you have something to celebrate. If you like to enjoy the occasional tipple check out my Top 10 Tips for drinking alcohol in a safe way.
Did you know that…
Eggs can be quite inflammatory to the human body. The softer you have them the better they are for you. However, I wouldn’t eat an egg at all if I had to eat at soft because the taste and texture is just weird to me. I trust you to make this judgment call, so go ahead and enjoy how you see fit.
