Actually the perfect Hangover breakfast would be with Bradley Cooper. Since he’s not likely to show up, try this roasted red pepper strata. You make it the day before and let it sit in the fridge overnight to soak up all the goodness. All you have to do on New Year’s day is pop it in the oven. Serve with some chicken apple sausage that you grill up the day before and just microwave to warm. You can also toss some fresh berries with a little sugar and Grand Marnier to get some vitamin C into you for a quick New Year’s Eve recovery. Happy, Happy 2011 to everyone!
