Bubble & Squeak


Late night supper having worked till after 9pm – serves 2

about 6 cavalo nero leaves
3-4 potatoes
1 onion – chopped
a few knobs of butter
glug of olive oil
2 eggs

Peel and cube the potatoes. Boild in salted water until tender, driain then mash with a little butter and some salt.

Remove the woody stems from the cavalo nero, then finely chop and boil for 5 minutes or so until tender. Drain and add to the mashed potato.

Fry the onion in a little butter and olive oil. When starting to brown, remove from heat and add to the mashed potato and cavalo nero.

Add a little grated nutmeg, mix well.

Heat a little more olive oil in a large frying pan. Shape the mash mixture into patties and fry for about 5 minutes on each side until well browned.

Place on plates, then gently fry the eggs in the same pan.

Place an egg on top of the bubble and squeak patty and server with a generous spoonful of beetroot relish.

    Oh, how I love bubble and squeak. In my family they are always made with leftover roasted potatoes, mashed up so that you get the crispy bits.
