Hair-of-the dog brunch recipes?

I'm wondering if anyone has any great hair-of-the dog recipes? We're thinking of eventually making a CHOW tip video with ideas from Chowhound, and we've already come across a great example: bourbon maple syrup for French toast, as suggested here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/3404...

Any other favorite recipes with alcohol that people make for brunches? I'm more interested in creative food preparations (not just the obvious breakfast beverages

)

I'm thinking there might be some good ideas for boozy fruit compotes or salads?

    1. I thought by the title you meant recipes for curing a hangover....guess that's not exactly right?

          Doesn't hair of the dog mean using alcohol to cure a hangover?

              So I think the title makes sense!

                Not only does it sense, but it is apropo.

        2. Ever make egg benedict by poaching the eggs in vodka?
          Bring the traditional water/vinegar/salt bath to a gentle boil (not a strong rolling boil) and then add your quarter cup of vodka. Gently add in your eggs. Infuses but not too strong.

          1. Scotch Whiskey Muffins
            Harvey Wallbanger Cake
            Ale Bread

            1. Years ago a poster named Candy posted about a country ham, butter and bourbon concoction that she made. I think you spread it on toast(?) Biscuits(?) I can't remember. I never tried it but it sounded awesome. I wonder if she is still around here to chime in..

              1. Chinese congee made with Moutai.

                1. shrimp and grits. flambe the shrimp in bourbon.
                  waffles with strawberries macerated in sugar and bourbon or maybe brandy. and perhaps a bourbon whipped cream on top.
                  crepes covered in some kind of sauce made from chocolate and coffee liquer?

                  1. Carrot soup with a healthy splash of vermouth or cream of crab soup where you add the sherry at the table.

                    1. Welsh rarebit made with beer, served with bread. Gooey, cheesey, greasy, carby and beer-y. And serve with a bloody Mary - you know, for the vitamins.

                      1. French toast made with croissant, eggs, cream and Grand Marnier.

                        1. Grilled pineapples in Sambuca

                          1. French toast with grand marnier in the egg mixture. If you can get some orange rind, that would add to it, also.
                            Multiple berries macerated with chambord. Top with whipped cream laced with frangelico.
                            Eggs poached in bloody marys (no ice). I would serve on whole grain toast topped with hollandaise and accompanied with marinated cukes.
