Bubble and Squeak was made popular during WWII when food was rationed. My Nan and Mum often made it, usually on a Monday morning with Sundays Roast Dinner leftovers. The name Bubble and Squeak comes from the sounds that makes as it fries.
A Splash of Olive Oil
1 Medium Onion, sliced
1 cup Leftover Cooked Turkey, chopped roughly
2 Baked Potatoes, thickly sliced (traditionally it’s mashed potatoes)
8 Leftover Cooked Brussel Sprouts or 1 cup cooked Cabbage (any green, leftover cooked veg. will do)
1/4 cup Leftover Turkey Gravy
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Heat oil in a large fry pan. Toss in onion and cook until soft. Add potatoes and brown. Add turkey, veg, gravy and heat through. Season with salt and pepper to taste, how much will depend the spiciness of the gravy.
Serves 2. Add a couple of fried eggs and you’ve got a tasty breakfast. Although not pretty, it tastes divine, especially on a chilly morning.
Luxed Up; Add in 1 cup of leftover stuffing when adding the turkey. You may need to increase the gravy portion, as the stuffing will sop some up.
