Michael Caines' Bubble and Squeak

Michael Caines' Bubble and Squeak

Who doesn’t love good old bubble and squeak?

With an excess of Christmas spuds and vegetables it makes sense to do it at this time of year. You’ll need about twice the quantity of potatoes to veg to make a good bubble and squeak that holds together, so cook another potato or two if need be. We love this delicious recipe from our friend Michael Caines.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
Serves: 4

50gr unsalted butter

200gr roast potatoes cut into a large dice

250gr Left over vegetables chopped into an even dice

1 tspn Oregano chopped fine

1 tspn Winter savoury chopped fine (optional)

300gr cold potato puree

100gr White turkey meat chopped into a small dice

100gr Brown turkey meat chopped into a small dice

Plain four


Sweat the onions in the 50gr of butter with a pinch of salt

Then add the herbs and sweat a further 2 minutes

Now add the vegetables and cook for a further 2 minutes.

Remove and transfer into a bowl, leave to cool, then add the chopped potatoes and potato puree.

Season with salt and pepper and mix together well.

Shape into a ball and then pat down to a cake. Place onto a tray lined with parchment and leave to set in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Remove and place into the flour and then pat off the excess flour.

Fry in a frying pan with a little vegetable oil. Colour one side, flip and place into an oven at 180°c for five minutes

Poach eggs whilst they are cooking.

Serve with the poached eggs laid carefully on top.
