Bubble and Squeak

People joke a lot about British food, but there are a few dishes that I love, one being bubble and squeak. This was traditionally made to use up leftovers from the Sunday roast, so potatoes, cabbage and carrots are all you need. I had leftover cabbage, so added some boiled, mashed potatoes, some grated carrots and a couple of fried eggs to make a delicious and warming lunch. Rough recipe below:

1 cup of cooked, chopped cabbage

1 cup of mashed potatoes
1 grated carrot
2 eggs

Mix cabbage, potatoes and carrots together and add salt and pepper to taste. Heat some butter or oil in a non-stick pan, then press the vegetable mixture into the pan to form a thick pancake. Let it fry over medium heat until brown underneath, then flip sections of the pancake to cook the other side. Keep turning parts of the pancake until you see a lot of nice browned bits and remove it all to a plate. Fry two eggs in some oil or butter and top the vegetables with them. Dig in!
