Absolutely perfect and delicious, just like what I ate while living in England!

Although i am sure this recipe is delicious, bubble and squeak is primarily a left overs recipe and i have never had it made with cream. Also, it is most often made with cabbage rather than brussel sprouts, but any greens would be nice. The most important thing is to fry it long enough so that the edges go brown and crispy ! Yum ! Glad to see soem people appreciate English cookery !
