BUBBLE AND SQUEAK 1
(Makes: 4 Servings)
1/2 cup leftover mashed potatoes per person
1/2 cup leftover cooked cabbage per person
salt and pepper
Chop cabbage and mix well with mashed potatoes.
Season with salt and pepper, and nutmeg, (optional).
Heat bacon fat (for taste) or cooking oil (for a healthier version!) in a frying pan.
Add the cabbage and potato mixture to the hot pan, and fry for several minutes until brown on the bottom.
Invert the bubble and squeak onto a plate, and warm some more fat/oil in the pan.
Slide the bubble and squeak back into the pan to brown and crisp the other side.
The name "Bubble and Squeak" comes from the sounds the ingredients make while cooking.
Some versions of this recipe add a meat ingredient, such as corned beef, to make a one-pan meal.
