Traditional Bubble & Squeak augmented with fried or grilled Bacon & a small fried egg per person. You will note that you will cook your 'squeak' in two batches because few people have pans to cater for the whole mixture at once. This is a fantastic meal to put together from left-over Roast Dinner ingredients - add parsnips, carrots, brussel sprouts etc to make up the quantities as desired.

Recipe Ingredients for Bacon & Squeak with Fried Egg

900 grams Potato, Mashed
700 grams Cabbage, Savoy
4 serving Tesco Smoked Back Bacon x2 slices
1 oz Butter
4 tsp Becel with Bertoli Olive Oil Margarine
2 fl oz Milk
120 grams Egg, Whole

Recipe Directions for Bacon & Squeak with Fried Egg

  1. Boil potatoes and steam the shredded cabbage over the top for a few minutes while they cook - 4-5 minutes will be enough for the cabbage, 20-25 for the potatoes to become mashable.

  2. Chop the bacon into handy size squares (scissors work well) and dry stir-fry in the pan you will use for your 'squeak later (or grill the rashers and then cut - whichever you prefer).

  3. Now set the cabbage aside while you drain and mash potatoes with the butter and milk (black pepper can be a nice addition here).

  4. Mix in the drained cabbage and your cooked bacon with the potatoes. Get your frying pan good and hot and then pop in 1/2 of your margarine - as soon as it is melted put in half your potato mixture, patting it down as a thick layer across the pan (about an inch thick). While this is browning, fry two of your eggs. Turn the Squeak mixture regularly until it has achieved a nice golden brown tone and serve with a fried egg to your two favourite diners. Repeat the process with the remaining mixture to complete the recipe. This can be 'jazzed up' with the addition of a can of baked beans to share should you wish.
