Bubble and Squeak (aka Potato Cakes) is a British classic, and an easy and flexible recipe. You can make it from scratch OR use up leftover veggies. Flavorful, colorful, fluffy, creamy and so so good. Perfect for breakfast or brunch!
Apart from being really fun to say, Bubble and Squeak is such an easy and flexible recipe. It’s my number 1 choice when I have to use up leftover vegetables from a roast or from any meal. Bubble and squeak is a classic British dish, which typically features leftover veggies after a holiday, such as Christmas. The one “rule” is that you must have potatoes and cabbage (or Brussels sprout), but beyond that, you can add anything else you like – carrots, peas, herbs, cheese, corn, or even broccoli!
