This recipe comes straight from the BBC, except I veganized it and added a little something. Bubble and squeak doesn’t need to come in cake form, but when given the choice, I can’t see myself ever not wanting to make it this way. I mean, look at the adorable little cakes, full of squeaky goodness!

- 1Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil. Peel and chop potatoes into bite sized pieces. Smaller red potatoes need only be quartered. Add potatoes and boil for 12-15 minutes or until tender.
- 2Meanwhile, chop the ends off the brussels sprouts and remove any bad looking leaves. When there is five minutes left of the potatoes, add the sprouts and cook for four minutes. After four minutes, remove them with a slotted spoon to a bowl filled with ice water to stop the cooking.
- 3Drain the potatoes and return back to the hot (empty) pot you boiled them inches Turn the heat down to low and let the potatoes dry for 1-2 minutes.
- 4While the potatoes are drying out, drain the sprouts and pat them dry. Shred them finely with a chef’s knife.
- 5Add the Earth Balance to the potatoes and mash well. Mix in the sprouts and 1/4 tsp Old Bay seasoning (or salt) and taste for flavor, adding more seasoning if desired. Set aside until cool enough to handle.
- 6Mix the 1/2 cup flour with 1/2 tsp Old Bay (or salt). Heat a large, cast-iron skillet over medium heat with 1/4″ oil in the bottom.
- 7Break up the potato mixture into 8 rough patties.
- 8Gently form each one into a smooth, hockey puck like shape. Dip the cake in the seasoned flour mixture. Be gentle, and do this for each patty.
- 9Fry 3-4 patties at a time for 2-3 minutes a side, until golden brown. You may need to re-dip them in flour right before putting them in the oil, so keep it handy. Use two spatulas (or a spatula and a flat wooden spoon) to turn the cakes; you don’t want to splash hot oil all over yourself.
- 10Place fried cakes on a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- 11Preheat oven to 375º F.
- 12Once all the cakes are fried, you can place the whole sheet of them in the oven for 15 minutes to re-heat and re-crisp them in time for your meal. You can also refrigerate them for up to three days (reheating in the same manner), or freeze them for a month.
