Bubble and Squeak
Left-over mashed potatoes
Left-over cooked cabbage (green or red)
Pinch of salt
Ground black pepper
2 tbsp butter
Why bother making junk food?
.    Mix the potato and cabbage together in a large mixing bowl
(You may substitute almost any vegetable for the cabbage, but cabbage is traditional)
.    Melt the butter in a heavy fry pan and add the potato mixture, pressing it down firmly
with a spatula. Or you can make individual ''cakes'' for each person's plate.
.    Cook until nicely browned underneath, flip over and brown the other side
.(Use vegetables such as peas, beans, carrots, turnips, asparagus, parsnips, leeks, etc.)
Baked Stuffed Potatoes
4 large baking potatoes (one for each person)
1/2 cup grated cheese (Cheddar)
1 tsp onion
for each onion - finely chopped
2 tbsp butter
splash of milk
pepper to taste
I also make mine without cheese.
Lots of butter and a mound of sour
cream does it for me. Chives,
onions, bacon is nice, too!
Now lets eat!
.    Wash the potatoes well and then dry. With a fork, prick holes in the potato skin and
then rub the skins with a bit of salt to make them nice and crispy in the oven
.    Bake on the top rack of a 400 degree oven for about one hour
.    Remove from oven (they are HOT) and cut in half lengthwise
.    Scoop out the potatoes with a spoon into a bowl, leaving the skin intact like a boat.
.    Mash the potato lightly and add most of the cheese. Reserve some for the topping.
Mix in the onion, butter, a splash of milk and salt and pepper. Mix well!
.    Spoon the mixture back into the skins and top off with the reserved cheese.
.   Place under the broiler until cheese is melted and bubbling and turning golden.

An excellent dish that can use up left-over potatoes and ''greens''.
Delicious when served with grilled sausage and bacon at breakfast.

Over-easy eggs and fried green tomatoes, too.
It used to be said that the British
only had three vegetables...and
two of them were cabbage!
Me mum was British and her cooking
was always second to none!
