The name of this dish is due to the sounds that are emitted during cooking, the cabbage bubbles as it is boiled and then squeaks in the frying pan. NOTE: This classic British dish originally contained beef along with the leftover cooked potatoes and cabbage, though today people don't generally bother with the meat.

Good hearty and warm dish for cosy winter (or spring) evening!!! I made it with ground beef. Tasty! Thank you!

This was really nice! I added extra salt because of another review and some pepper as well. I also used butter when I mashed the potatos - not sure if this was part of the recipe or not? It is a great staple for dinners...
