Bloody Marys — along with other hangover-friendly items, like greasy bacon and crispy homefries — make regular appearances on most brunch menus. So why not take the essential flavors of a Bloody Mary and incorporate them into a meatball? If that’s not killing two birds, I don’t know what is.

The meatball mixture has horseradish, tomato paste, Worcestershire, Tabasco, and celery salt — all the makings of a good Bloody Mary. You first sear them in a skillet, then finish cooking them in the oven. While the meatballs are baking, heat some tomato sauce in the skillet; then add the baked meatballs to the sauce to simmer for a few minutes.

Serve these with some eggs and crusty bread (and if you’re really feeling crazy, a Bloody Mary) and you’ve got the ultimate brunch spread.
