Bubble And Squeak Recipe

This bubble and squeak recipe is a delicious side dish with a fun name and background!

I love the name of this dish. Bubble and Squeak. Sounds almost more like a cleaning product than a meal, but I love the name just the same.

It doesn’t look like much either, even by reading the recipe. But this dish packs a really flavorful punch! In fact, this was my first time making it, and I was absolutely amazed at how flavorful this dish was.

From what I understand, the name comes from the sound the vegetables make in the pan while they are cooking. I must have a different kind of pan, because I didn’t hear any bubbles or squeaks. But no matter.

This dish is quite versatile as well. One of those that turns out just a little different for everyone who makes it. Why? Because you can pretty much change it to your liking, and still end up with a great dish.

This would have been just as good with some lean ground turkey meat or beef mixed in. For vegetarians, a little tofu or TVP would have worked equally well.

I can’t say enough about this recipe. It will definitely be a staple in my home from now on.

  • When the onions are finished cooking, add your cabbage and potato and cook covered until the cabbage and potato are cooked through and soft. Cook for 2-3 minutes longer, uncovered, to get a bit of browning. Add salt and pepper to taste. (I also sprinkled mine with sesame seeds)

    I can’t wait to try this – just got cabbage in my CSA and was trying to find something to do with it – this sounds perfect!

      Pastryjess – Thanks! Let me know how you like it!

  2. This is a great cabbage recipe, but I also add, green pepper, kielbasa sliced on the bias and lots of garlic. One pot meal.
