It didn't bubble, and it didn't squeak

And it was just about the most awful-looking thing I've ever cooked. Bubble and Squeak is a traditional British dish that you can make to use up leftovers. Its principle ingredients are potatoes and cabbage, and this is what it's supposed to look like:

I think my downfall was using purple (red) cabbage. Which is quite lovely when eaten raw in a cole slaw or salad. But cooking, not so much.

Not even a "golden" filter helped:

Oddly enough, it was delicious. But I'm never cooking red cabbage again.


  1. What leftover vegetables did you use? I agree about red cabbage...not the best to look at after cooking.

    1. I used were potato, cabbage, onion, and a bit of cooked kohlrabi. I had leftover Italian sausage, so tossed that in for extra flavour.
