"It's cold outside. You're feeling blue. You need rumbledethumps, it's so comforting! If you're feeling really down, top with a fried egg. Adapted from Good Cooking by Jill Dupleix. Enjoy!"

"This was so good! I made it up the night before and then put it in to bake the next morning. I served with fried eggs and it was delicious."
"It was one of those cold dreary days and decided to try this - a true comfort food. I followed the directions except used mozzerella cheese as that's all I had, put a soft egg on top and it was so good, wondering how some added ham and garlic would taste with it."
"Really yummy comfort food. I was short on potatoes, and added some dehydrated sliced potatoes and it still came out great. Instead of topping with fried eggs, I just poured the mixture into a 9x13 pan and made little wells for 4 eggs. Then I placed it in the oven just until the eggs were done, topped with a little cheese and returned to the oven for another minute. Next time I will just fry the egg, as I like a runny yoke. Also, my family likes a lot more cabbage - I'll probably up this quite a bit next time - and there will be a next time.
Really tasty and I just love to say the name 'Rumbledethumps...Rumbledethumps!' Isn't it fun?
Edit - I used just a head of green cabbage. I didn't have Savoy."
"Delicious....altho I'll admit I made it very cheesy. I used one whole head of savoy cabbage for three large potatoes; pretty cabbage which was great for me, but thought husband would need the cheese. :o) ZWT6"
"Sharon, this is a very good recipe. But I am not rating it, because it just was not to our taste. Not your fault or the recipe's fault. I thought we would really like it. Perhaps it was something I did. . . . Janet"
"You had me at freshly grated Parmesan. :) This was so good and filling. The combination of potatoes, cabbage and green onion was perfect. The cheddar and parmesan cheeses were a wonderful addition, and topping it off with a fried egg was a lovely bonus. I used whole milk and opted to bake it. Thanks for another great recipe, Sharon. Made for October 2009 Bevy Tag."
"Outstanding! Have made these before, following a recipe without the cheese - not nearly so good. Next time, will add a little garlic too. Thanks for sharing. Editted to add: great with kale instead of cabbage, too."
"What a comfort to me tired, tired bones, it were, Sharon, me darlin'. Seriously, really an usually dinner for me, but I surely enjoyed it. Of course!! I topped with a fried egg, who wouldn't? :) Made for the Scottish leg of the GB Forum's Tour of the Isles."
"My son-in-law cooked this last night with the fried egg on top, and chicken-garlic sausages on the side. What a satisfying meal. He sent the leftover portion home with me to bring for lunch today, and I am looking forward to lunchtime."
"Lovely! I didn't have any green onions but I had some leeks so I added some to the cabbage. Thanks!"
"Outstanding! I think I underdid it with the potatoes, so I'll add more next time. But this was such a good accompaniment with a recipe for vegetarian haggis I found here. No eggs this time. But maybe next time."
"Excellent! I've never had rumbledethumps before, but I won't need to find any other recipes after this. I used dry grated parmesan-romano cheese (the powdered kind that comes in a plastic container- the horror!) and it was still great. Thanks for giving me my new diet staple!"
"Aussie Swap#17: Yum Yum - definitely the best comfort food!!"
"Very good ! I made it with the egg on top and I think that the egg mades a wonderful contrast of flavours. I didn't cook my cabbage for the 10 minutes instructed because we like our veggies crunchy.. more 5-6 minutes and I used a tad less parmesan cheese, we are trying to eat a bit healthier. For the rest all the ingredients stayed the same and this was tasty. Please see my rating system: 4 lovely stars for a tasty potato dish ideal for cooler eveninings. Thanks!"
"Real comfort food!!! A better known version of this would be Bubble&Squeak, but this is a healthier version and we very much enjoyed it!! Easy to prepare, I chose to bake it in the oven, and on the side made chicken schnitzels for DH and DD, although I was perfectly happy to make a meal with just this! :) Thanks for a lovely recipe, Sharon, I'll be making it again!"
