I said it. I meant it.
I was lucky enough to have had a delicious batch of biscuits & gravy whipped up for me after a night of drinking over the weekend when I was hit with an indisputable fact that is biscuits & gravy is hands down the best meal to have when you wake up hungover.
This, of course, was met with a variety of different opinions that were, of course, all wrong.
I think I'd rather just keep drinking straight SKOL than eat a Taco Bell burrito the morning after. It would have the same effect of, pardon the graphic image, explosive diarrhea or making me yak.
There were a lot of people who mentioned a variety of different McDonald's meals whether it be their burrito or the classic sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit. Those are fine if you have to go to work the next day or in high school after leaving an open house and you're still kinda drunk.
But if we're talking straight up the best meal you could have in a perfect scenario to make everything better the morning after a long night, it's easily biscuits & gravy.
The sweet and savory combo plus the substance of soaking up all the liquid poison inside you is undefeated. There are a few caveats, though.
1. There has to be substantially more gravy than biscuits. If you're lacking gravy then you're stuck trying to choke down a dry biscuit which can almost be worse than eating Taco Bell. Load that shit up with as much gravy as you can.
2. Arguably even more important for me - the gravy has to be runny. It needs to be damn near a liquid - not a cream. A lot of thick and creamy gravy is better than not having enough gravy, but preferably that shit needs to be dripping off the biscuits enough to wear you cut off a slice of the biscuit and can rub it in extra gravy.
Any time I have myself a night, all I want the next morning is a bed, some coffee, and always, biscuits & gravy.
