Bubble & Squeak a traditional recipe for using up leftover potatoes and vegetables.  This traditional English dish is usually served on a Monday using the leftover vegetables from Sunday lunch.  Delicious on it’s own but great served with a poached or fried egg.


There are no set ingredients or measurement but you will need enough mashed potato to hold the rest of the ingredients together.

1 onion or spring onions choppedBubble & Squeak

Butter or bacon fat for frying

Mashed potatoes

Leftover cooked vegetables such as cabbage, brussel sprouts, carrots, swede, parsnips, peas

Clove of garlic minced

Salt and pepper to taste


Combine the mashed potatoes, vegetables and minced garlic together well

In a large frying pan fry the onion in the butter or bacon fat until golden brown

Add this to the bowl of vegetables and mix together well adding salt and pepper to taste

Add more butter or bacon fat to the frying pan heat gently

When it is hot add the vegetable mixture and press down into the pan

Leave to fry over a moderate heat until a thin crust has formed. Turn over and cook the underside, then serve with poached or fried eggs or sausages and brown sauce.
