Winter - check.
Craving carbs - check.
Far too many green veggies lurking in the fridge - check.

Perfect for Bubble & Squeak!  This is an old fashioned British thing for reusing your leftovers, traditionally you would have had it on a monday (with the left overs from your sunday roast).  You need mashed potato and any leftover cold boiled greens (a day old is good!), think cabbage, brussels sprouts, broccoli...  If you are feeling adventurous (!) add carrots, onions, cheese, smoked tofu or whatever you have hidden in the fridge.

Roughly mash the ingredients together with a little margarine & then lightly fry the mixture, till it is warmed through and browning slightly.  When frying you may be lucky enough to hear the squeaking sound! 

I think it's lovely with veggie sausages & brown sauce  Grin

MissColee - Sorry!!!!  Brown sauce is kinda like a cross between barbeque sauce & vinegar (but tastes much better than that sounds!).  The biggest brand is HP sauce here is the wiki link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP_Sauce 

I've seen HP sauce in Canada, but not sure if you can get it in the States? Anybody know?  Huh

I tried to make this a few weeks ago and it completely failed. It didn't taste fried at all although I used quite a bit of oil. It was so disappointing. What did I do wrong- do you try not to stir it? Use a higher heat?

Thanks. (And I really want veggie sausages now!)

I have lots of white pillow feathers to get rid of. PM me if you are in Britain and would like some!

Hurm... I try not to stir it too much, enough so it's warmed through in the middle, and nice & golden & crisp on the outside - if that makes sense?

The veggie sausages in the pic are Linda McCartney's ... yum!

I love bubble and squeak! I do the same mash it all together, then fry, when its gets hot and almost ready is makes a squeaky noise....you could also zap it in the microwave for a few minutes before frying,
its nicer when it gets crispy on the outside, I like mine with gravy, I do like HP brown sauce too( I live in the uk)!
its also a great way to use up left overs and extra nice on a cold miserable day Grin

I am not a sheep, I dont follow....
AND please be aware, I am in England, so my spellings and sayings may seem a lil bit weird lol
