What is Bubble and Squeak?
A terribly traditional English dish, Bubble and Squeak is typically made from leftover vegetables from a roast dinner. The dish is so named because the cabbage makes bubbling and squeaking sounds during the cooking process. This dish is typically served with left-over meat, pickles, brown sauce or even with a full English breakfast.

DIFFICULTY: SUPER EASY
So… Let’s get started!
What You Will Need
- 1 tbsp of duck fat, goose fat or butter
- 4 rashers of bacon.
- 1 finely sliced onion
- 1 garlic clove
- 20 brussels sprouts or leftover cabbage
- 400g (or more) of leftover mashed potato
- Leftover pork
- Gravy (optional)
How To Make Your Meal
1. First, melt your fat in a non-stick pan. Make sure it gets very hot and then add your bacon, cook until it begins to go crispy. Once this has happened add your onion and garlic. Next, add the sliced sprouts or cabbage (or both!) and let it colour slightly, this should take about 5 minutes.
2. After this, add your potato and your leftover pork. Mix everything together in the pan so the mixture covers the bottom of your pan. The mixture should begin to look cake like and thick, this is normal don’t panic! Let the mixture fully brown and then remove from the heat.
3.Now it’s time to serve. If you’ve managed to get your hands on some gravy, even if it is left over from last night, warm it up, and generously pour over the dish. Serve with a glass of pinot noir.
