Bubble and Squeak

Bubble and Squeak created by Julie Bs Hive

Don't throw that last bit of mashed potato away - try Bubble and Squeak instead. The name comes from the noise it makes in the pan when frying. From The Popular Potato this dish is a favorite British breakfast treat.

    I have heard of this dish, but have never tried it before. This was very good with loads of flavor. I mixed the steamed cabbage, and sauteed onions with the mashed potatoes and then put the mixture into the frying pan. I also doubled the bacon and added some salt, pepper and garlic powder. Great addition to breakfast and very filling. Made for August, 2009 Aussie/NZ Swap.

    I loved this. Ate it as a side rather than for brekkie though. Fantastic way to use some leftovers. Economical and tasty also. For my tastes, however, I did add about four more slices of bacon, and I just mixed it into the potato.

    I chose this recipe for Spring Pac 2007 and really enjoyed it! I was a little hesitant considering the name. It kind of reminded me of a doggie toy..but besides that. I thought the flavor was good and even sort of reminded me of Corn beef and cabbage. I did add salt and pepper to taste..but other than that followed the recipe exactly as written.
