This weekend, Serious Eats posted my “Hangover Helper” article about “The Hangover” at Meander’s Kitchen in White Center. An excerpt:
The Hangover ($9.50) is just what the carb doctor ordered: “a double order of crispy browns topped with homemade sausage gravy.” Additional protein comes from two eggs, which I ordered over easy so that the yolks could run down the potatoes. Finishing the plate is a biscuit, a natural match with the gravy. If that’s not enough carb action for you, do as I did and get a side of snowy beignets that come with house-made marionberry jam.
The potatoes are crisped until crunchy, holding up well even while swimming in the sauce. Really, though, this dish is all about that gravy. There are plenty of crumbles of sausage to satisfy, and the perfectly peppery flavor will perk you up for breakfast—served until the 3 p.m. closing time for those having slow mornings. Note, though, that the menus are slightly different weekdays and weekends; some of the weekday classics are missing on the weekends, but you can get waffles with fried chicken on Saturdays and Sundays…
