Bubble and Squeak

By Ange's Table

Hello there.  How are you doing this morning?  

I hope you have something great planned for today.  

So I know today’s title sounds kinda strange.  Bubble and Squeak.  But, if you look and listen closely while making this, you will see the yucca (potato) bubble and hear the cabbage squeak.  Crazy, I know!

“Bubble and squeak is a traditional British breakfast dish made from potatoes and cabbage. … The dish is so named because the cabbage makes bubbling and squeaking sounds during the cooking process.” Thank you Wikipedia.

Growing up in an Italian household, cabbage wasn’t something my mom cooked.  We had purple cabbage in our salad all the time.  Or we had coleslaw from the store. This is the coleslaw we have now, and I have been told its better than the one from the store.  Thanks.

So in my early 30’s, when I started to develop all of my food allergies, I needed to find new vegetables to add into my diet.  Cabbage was one of those vegetables, that once I ate it cooked, I was so happy to have it in my life.  This is one of our favorite ways to make cabbage. This cabbage recipe can be made without the bacon as well.  The olive oil adds a buttery texture that is out of this world. I just love it.

I had also learned that swapping yucca for white potato in a recipe worked amazingly.  We love to make fries like this, or yucca and onions.  


Reading food blogs, or watching different cooking shows is something that I have been interested in since I was a young girl.  I remember being so excited the first day the Food Network was on the air.  So much better than channel 13 programming. 

So in all of my research on new foods to eat, I looked at all different cuisines.  And this traditional dish blew my mind.

Drizzle just a touch of oil in the pan and add in the yucca and cabbage, heat through.

Just give me a spoon!

Never be afraid of a new dish, or cuisine.  Especially if you are making it yourself.  This side goes perfectly with anything.  You use leftovers to make it, so heres to a new hash for Sunday morning brunch.  Or when you don’t have time to cook at the end of a busy day.  Serve along side a burger, and some carrot sticks, and dinner is ready!

This was such a comforting and satisfying meal at the end of a long, hard day.

Thanks @aidells these burgers were delicious!

Have you made Bubble and Squeak before?  It’s so good with a bit of sausage added in, then 2 over medium eggs on top.  My mouth is watering.
