Bubble and Squeak

bubble and squeak

Ahhh good ol’ Bubble and Squeak, a traditional English dish made using the veg (usually cabbage) and potato leftovers of a Sunday roast. The beauty of this dish is there is no recipe as it was always made from leftovers!

You can use any vegetables you like, we use the veg after making a stock picking out peppercorns, bay leaves and twiggy thyme before use.

How we make Bubble and Squeak:

  • Mash potatoes with a little butter and season, add any cooked vegetables you like and mix together.
  • Using your hands shape the mixture into patties and pop into the fridge to chill for an hour, they hold their shape better this way.
  • Shallow fry in olive oil allowing the potato to catch on the bottom of the pan each side.
  • Serve as they are, top with a poached egg or use as a side with cold meats.
