Bubble And Squeak!

Bubble and squeak is a traditional English breakfast that's made from leftovers from a traditional English Sunday dinner, like onions, mashed potatoes, cabbage, brussel sprouts and so on.  It's all mixed together and fried in butter until brown, then served with an egg on top!  Sounds weird, but believe me it's fantastic!

As you must know by now, I'm into using leftovers, not just to save money but to respect my food, like the plants and animals that have died for me so I can exist!

Just take a heavy skillet and heat it up over medium heat, adjust the heat as necessary, you want to make sure everything is warmed though and not just browned, so low to medium heat is good.  Add some butter, when the butter is foaming, add the veggies, patting them down so they fill the pan and to remove any air pockets.  Make sure to season well with sea salt, pepper and add a little heat like Cayenne or chili flakes.

Cook for about 15-20 minutes then flip or turn.  Start cooking your eggs in a separate pan with some butter over low to medium heat.  The trick to cooking eggs, and everything else for that matter, is to make sure the pan is hot and not just warm.

I always want you to serve food onto warm plates,  it's OK if you don't but never serve eggs onto cold plates, they will be like congealed rubber!

Bon Appetit!  Chef Hobbes
