Classic British Bubble And Squeak


While not common in the U.S., if you’ve ever been to an English pub, you’ve probably heard of Bubble and Squeak. Traditionally made from the leftovers of a Sunday roast dinner, this traditional British dish is a combination of mashed potatoes and chopped veggies such as cabbage, broccoli and Brussel sprouts that are mixed together and pan-fried in a little oil. If you’re wondering (as we were) about how the recipe got its name, just listen to the sound the veggies make when you toss them into a hot skillet – little bubbles and squeaks!

Dating back hundreds of years, this hearty yet frugal recipe is a great way to use up any leftover veggies you have in the fridge; we typically make this after we’ve stretched out our groceries as long as we possibly can, then we do a fridge clean-out and throw everything we can into this dish. It’s easy to customize and you wouldn’t believe how yummy it is!
