Wake up at your Mates Motel
Mates Motel menu
The day after a session at your Mates Motel, you might wake up bleary-eyed and disorientated. So, it’s a good idea to hang out for the late checkout, rather than take off right away. One thing you’ll need to keep you going is food. What do you do when you’ve got hungry mates crashed at your place and nothing to eat but leftover party foods? You improvise.
Basically bacon and eggs with cheese on a pizza base. Left over cold cuts make a great replacement for bacon and any fancy soft cheeses will add extra flavour. Pop it on a pizza and shove it under the grill. Then let the headache drift away on the greasy seas of melted cheese.
Use two glazed donuts as your burger bun, then pile on the meat and cheese and you’ve got yourself an epic breakfast donut burger worthy of a king.
Take your taco to the next level. Use a leftover slice of pizza as a taco shell. Then fill it up with sour cream mince and cheese. Total power move.
Crack an egg in your mi goreng and mix in some leftover cold cuts from Christmas lunch to take it up a notch. Bam! You’re in flavour country.
Left over corn chips, sausages, dips and cheese can make some mean nachos for your mates.
Just get whatever fruit is laying around put it in a blender with some ice and whizz it up.
Classic sausage and sauce sarnie
Left over sausages and a splash of tomato sauce make great early morning fuel to keep your guests going.
Potato salad dippers
Grab some cold sausages from the barbie and dip them in potato salad for creamy meaty morning goodness.
Rethink drinking and walking
When you’ve been drinking you think you’re a really good dancer – but really you look like a newborn giraffe on an ice rink. So you think you can walk? Think again.
More than 30% of pedestrians killed on the road have .05 BAC.
So before you go staggering off into the night, plan another way home. And whatever you do, make sure it isn’t riding a bike!
