Bubble and Squeak

Recipe by  

You might shock the Michelin Star chefs, but you can actually use almost any leftovers to make bubble and squeak. Hence there is no definitive list of ingredients for this recipe! Essentially, it's best if you can include some left over cooked potatoes and meat (lamb or beef by preference).

How to Cook Bubble and Squeak

  1. Chop the cooked meat into small pieces and place it in a large mixing bowl with the mashed potatoes. Roughly chop all the other vegetables you are using into small pieces and add these to the bowl. Add salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste, then mix well so that the meat, potatoes and vegetables are evenly dispersed. Using your hands, form the mixture into flat 'cakes' about 1" (2.5cm) thick and about 4" (10cm) round.
  2. Melt a little duck fat, goose fat or beef dripping to a frying pan over a medium heat (you can use oil if you wish, but it lacks the flavour of any of the fats). Add the bubble and squeak 'cakes' and cook for about 5-6 minutes. Check the underside which should have formed a thin, golden-brown 'skin' and, if ready, turn over and cook the other side in similar fashion. (You may need to add a little more fat to the pan if the bubble and squeak is sticking). After a further 5-6 minutes, serve the bubble and squeak hot with lashings of ketchup.

A fried egg (or two) perched on top of the bubble and squeak makes a perfect meal and uses up all those left-overs.

Reviews of Bubble and Squeak

Rating 5 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again March 30 2015
This was a giggle. We had a family group come and stay with us and, even though I'm not British, I was feeding them a full English Breakfast every day as a treat. One day, I had some left-over vegetables from the evening before so I turned them into this bubble and squeak (without the meat). Next morning, our lot were raving over it (covered in ketchup, of course!)

After that, I was actually having to buy and cook vegetables just so I could make them bubble and squeak next morning. Hard work, but lots of fun and everyone went home happy.
