BUBBLE AND SQUEAK


This is my favourite breakfast at the moment,
but it can also become a main meal for the evening!



This is a traditional English Breakfast meal using "left-overs"
from the previous days' meal. Sometimes known as "Hash-browns"
or "Colconnan" in Ireland, this snack is very popular during the Autumn
when there is a plentiful supply of Runner Beans or during Winter with Cabbage or Sprouts!

This year I have grown Runner Beans
where I normally plant Sweet Peas and I've had a really good crop.
[You can see my GARDEN on this page.]
I could eat freshly picked young runner beans until they come out of my ears!!!



"And what's the recipe today, David........."


INGREDIENTS FOR
"BUBBLE and SQUEAK"


You will need.........

Some cooked potatoes.
Some cooked runner beans, cabbage or sprouts.
Slices of back bacon. [or Gammon, Ham, or Corned Beef.]
Grated, or finely chopped onion.
Lump of butter.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Mixed herbs, to taste.
(I also add a pinch of dried chillis and a half a teaspoon of English Mustard.)
Fried egg.

The amounts needed will vary according to taste
and how many you are cooking for. Experiment!!!



"And this is what you do........."



Cut the bacon into little squares.
Grate or finely chop the onion.
Fry in the butter, in a shallow pan, or a wok.
Meanwhile, mix the cooked potatoes and runner beans in a bowl
and chop them with a sharp knife.
Add all the seasonings to taste. Mix well.
Add this to the frying pan [or wok] and stir-fry on a hot flame,
blending in with the bacon and onions.
Cook or stir-fry until brown crispy bits appear.
Serve with the fried egg on top!!
(or you can mix in a raw egg to help it all stick together, and stir-fry.)

"Mmmmmmmmm!" Nice!!


(The traditional Irish "Colcannon", using cooked sprouts, would also use Spring Onions instead of the ordinary onions and would also include Irish Butter and a little Milk or Cream.)


Swill down with a nice mug of [Earl Grey] tea!
