Made this to go with dinner and loved it. I've had fried potatoes before but never quite like this with the added cabbage. It was wonderful and a nice way of getting extra veggies for the family. DH specially liked it. I loved the way of serving too. Can't help but wonder how the name comes about - I do love the English way of naming things. Made for ZWT6 and the Mischief Makers.

We have our big meal for breakfast and I made this to go with our breakfast. I didn't have any cabbage but did have some leftover brussles sprouts. I sliced them thinly and added them in place of the regular cabbage. Also had some leftover baked potatoes. I left the skins on and cut them up and used those. I left out the parsley and added dashes of onion powder and garlic powder and a little salt and pepper. YUM. I love this stuff. It goes so well with the potatoes. Thanks for posting this recipe.
