Bubble and squeak

IMG_1372 bubble and squeak

The thing about bubble and squeak is that even the worst cook can’t get it wrong.  That’s because, there’s no way to get it ‘right’.  It’s just luck!  Use whatever leftovers you have from a roast dinner.  Stick an egg on top and serve with some gravy if you have it left over.  Delicious!

Using leftovers:

  • A large knob of butter and 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • All your leftovers from a roast dinner, particularly potatoes.
  • 1 egg per person
  • Gravy


Heat the oil and butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the onions until they start to go translucent.  Mash up all the leftovers from your roast dinner.  Add them to the pan and push down so they form a solid layer.

Cook for about 5 minutes until it’s starting to go crispy on the bottom.  Crack an egg on top for each person eating and put the pan under a hot grill to cook the eggs for a couple of minutes.

Serve cut in wedges with gravy on the side.
