For tea tonight - should have been served with lamb, but have ended up cooking a piece of ham and serving that with the Bubble N Squeak as the cats launched an online attack on the remnants of the lamb from yesterday when OH turned hi back for a split second! The Ham was on the cards to be cooked in any event for OHs pack up but just means the ham will be served warm for a change. I am not wasting all those lovely vegetables.
I think it was on Saturday on James' Martins Home Comforts cooking programme that there was a segment by the Food Historian Ivan Day about Bubble N Squeak and its origins which was very interesting as the meal originally consisted of left over cabbage and finely cut left over meat brought together in a pan and turned into a large cake! Not a potato in sight!
Mine has mashed potato, Brussel sprouts, some peas, some carrots, cauliflower all mixed up in it and then using my Tupperware beefburger formers made into Bubble N Squeak cakes which are then gently fried until golden brown and served with meat of your choice or in their own right. After all they are very tasty and a star in their own right and its making use of something that would otherwise go to waste. Fits my ethos of waste not want not very nicely. I sometimes make a batch specifically for the freezer so OH can indulge in a snack when he gets peckish.
Anyway places to go people to see catch you later
