Ingredients

    1lb (two large) boiled potatoes
    1/2lb cabbage cooked soft
    1/2 cup carrot cooked soft (opional)
    2tbs butter
    salt and pepper to taste
    Other herbs can be used if desired

Directions

**Prep time is based on potatoes and veggies already being cooked.** **serves 6 to 8**

(you can adjust the quantities in your recipe for bubble and squeak to suit your personal taste as desired, some people like half as much cabbage as potatoes, some like half and half. It can also be just all the left over vegitables that are normally put in pot roast.)

Now, mash potatoes and carrot together… Chop or break up the cabbage into bitesize pieces too and mix both these together, adding a little salt and pepper to taste. Other herbs can also be used if desired.

Then, add one tbs butter (can use oil too) to a frying pan or skillet and heat on a medium heat.

When the oil/butter is heated, add the cabbage and potatoes and form into a patty and let cook.

You might hear the distinctive squeak which gives bubble and squeak half of its name around this point. The ‘bubble’ part probably comes from the first stage of cooking the potatoes and cabbage which are typically boiled.

When the bottom of the patty turns a golden brown color you’ll need to flip it over adding the other tbs of butter to cook on the other side…and then, you’re done.

Bubble and Squeak is typically served with cold meats (more leftovers from Sunday Lunch) or evening meal but is also often served with breakfast with eggs, baked beans, fried tomatoes, sausages, bacon, and perhaps black pudding…a typical fry-up with the bubble and squeak replacing the potatoes or hash browns.
