How do YOU make Bubble and Squeak?

January 21st, 2008 at 10:25 pm

Someone in a Yahoo Group I'm in mentioned that she made Bubble and Squeak recently. I haven't made it in quite awhile but that got me thinking about the dish. I love that stuff and will more than likely make it for dinner one night this week.

So, in light of that, how do YOU make it? The recipe I use is good but I'm always interested in how others prepare dishes.

Share your B & S recipe, please!

    My family's old Pennsylvania Dutch Recipe:

    Lots of bacon GREASE!!! Sliced and peeled potatoes, chopped onion, and fresh garlic in the grease until potatoes are almost done. Pile on shredded cabbage on top, let it wilt, toss in leftover ham at some point and let it get heated in. Add garlic salt, season-all, lemon pepper & salt to taste. I always serve this with pears to kind of cut the grease factor.

    Ahhh, I might try yours which is a little different than mine. I just love the stuff and haven't had it in quite awhile. I can come up with a very close approximation of bacon grease by cooking turkey ham and turkey bacon in olive oil. And serving it with pears is a great idea. Thanks!

    I only heard about it when my husband moved in--he's British. He also lets it brown, almost burn, a little bit in places as he's cooking and stirring it in a big pot. Then you have these nice brown bits mixed in while you're eating it.

    He usually serves it with vegetarian toad-in-a-hole. This is vegetarian sausages laid in biscuit dough (EDIT: more like cornbread batter) and baked. Yumm! Dijon mustard is really good on the side, and HP brown sauce (an English condiment).

    Oh, Toad in a Hole, another favorite of mine! I haven't tried it with vegetarian sausages but I'm sure it's excellent! Yum, I might need to make that soon, too. lol

    Bubble N squeak is the name given to about 3 different variety of dishes..one with potatoes and meat, one with pasta and red sauce, and one with I think beans....

  8. DeniseNTexas Says:

    I've never heard of it being made with pasta & red sauce or beans. The only way I've had it is with vegetables and meat. I love it that way, though.

  9. ceejay74 Says:

    I didn't realize it could be different things...My husband's is cabbage and mashed potatoes.

    Wow, is this even English that I am reading? I had to look it up, but apparently I am... literally! Big Grin Learn something new everyday.

    lol BA, isn't it nice to learn something new? Smile
    Ceejay, any I've eaten or read about had potatoes and cabbage and spices, though the forms those take vary. As long as it's got cabbage and the browned bits, and potatoes and meat (no pork!) I'll eat it. And if it doesn't bubble and squeak, that's okay. lol
