Got some leftover mashed potato from the night before?  Don’t throw it out!  Turn it into Bubble and Squeak a hearty and delicious breakfast!

This used to be traditional Sunday breakfast fare in my house growing up – it gets its name from the noise it makes when it’s cooking in the pan!



  1. Microwave or fry the cabbage until just soft.

  2. Squeeze out any extra liquid and leave it to cool.

  3. Finely chop the cabbage and place it in a bowl with the mashed potato and any other leftover veggies.

  4. Add the egg, cheese and mustard and mix until just combined (don't overwork the mixture).

  5. Form six patties with your hands, and dust with flour.

  6. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes to firm up before frying.

  7. In a frypan heat the butter until bubbling.

  8. Cook the patties for 3 - 5 minutes on each side, using an egg flip to turn them over. Try and get a nice crust formed on either side of the pattie.

  9. Serve the bubble and squeak hot!  I like them with a poached egg and hollandaise sauce (see picture) just for something fancy!
