This is nursery food at its very best! Loved by generations of childrens and adults alike. It is really important you use savoy or green cabbage for this otherwise the texture and taste just aren't right. Ideally the mash should be a day old but fresh mash will also work well


  1. Melt butter and fry onions until soft but not brown.
  2. Add the cabbage and potatoes and mix well.
  3. Pat the mix down into a cake. Cook for 10 minutes over a medium heat. Then turn and cook again for 10 minutes.
  4. Ideal served with poached eggs, gammon or bacon.
