Method

  1. Melt the fat in a non-stick pan, allow it to get nice and hot, then add the bacon. As it begins to brown, add the onion and garlic. Next, add the sliced sprouts or cabbage and let it colour slightly. All this will take 5-6 mins.

  2. Next, add the potato. Work everything together in the pan and push it down so that the mixture covers the base of the pan – allow the mixture to catch slightly on the base of the pan before turning it over and doing the same again. It’s the bits of potato that catch in the pan that define the term ‘bubble and squeak’, so be brave and let the mixture colour. Cut into wedges and serve.

This was delicious and filling. Mine didn't hang together that well. I think I probably needed more potato - I didn't measure it. Was still really tasty. I used brocolli and leek instead of cabbage. I used garlic too!

You can put what you like in along with the traditional main ingredients. I love garlic & have included it in my Bubble & squeak on occasions. So Paul I support you 100%.

Ah, I love this! This is our boxing day treat. I agree with Scrummy though; not sure about the garlic! We always put in left over turkey ripped into pieces in ours, oh and sausage stuffing (thats if i've not already scoffed it all before boxing day!) Don't think I could servive eating a meal without meat, so like the idea of bacon, but again I agree with Scrummy; it has to be your Christmas meal left overs, or its just not the same! Mmmm... can't wait!
