A great way to use up leftover veg from Sunday’s roast. I had quite a lot of steamed cabbage and carrots left from Sunday so I retrieved these from the fridge tonight in order to make up some bubble and squeak ‘cakes’.
I prefer to cook these in the oven rather than fry them. If you have left over potatoes then you can use those, obviously, but I didn’t so the first thing to do was get some spuds going.
I didn’t boil these completely, I didn’t want to make mash, I thought I would just soften them slightly, drain them and allow them to cool and then grate them so the bubble and squeak cakes had a texture more like a rosti.
Leftover veg, chopped and with a good handful of grated cheddar cheese added:
Then add the grated potato:
Mix well (I used my hands) and then I put the a generous handful of the mixture in to each section of a greased muffin tray:
Put a little more cheese on the top of each ‘cake’ and then bake in the oven for about 30 mins at 180.
Before and after:
And on the plate:
We had these with some chipolata sausages – yum.
