I've found a few recipes that I am wanting to try out soon. Here is one of them:

Bubbles and Squeak
1 ounce butter, margarine or bacon fat
1 onion, finely chopped
1 lb potato, cooked and mashed
8 ounces cabbage, boiled
ground beef (optional) or lamb (optional)

Melt the butter in a large frying pan, add the onion and fry for a few minutes until softened, stirring frequently.
Add the potatoes and cabbage.
If you are including the beef, add this as well.
Fry over a medium heat for about 15 minutes until brown then serve.
Omit the beef and lamb and bacon fat for Vegetarian.

Here's another one:

Broccoli Salad

1 large head of broccoli, chopped
1/2 cup sunflower kernels
1 cup raisins
1 cup crumbled crisp bacon

1 cup mayo
2T vinegar
1/4 cup sugar

Mix together and combine with previous ingredients... chill...

    I have had Bubble and Squeak all my life. It is an old English standby. It is usually made from leftover veggies from a Sunday dinner. Back when Sunday dinners were special times. So leftover mashed potatoes and cabbage or peas or chopped up brussel sprouts. I have never seen it with meat in it but I guess it would be alright. We used to have cold sliced roast beef again left over from the Sunday roast. Enjoy.
