You know the sound of bubbling and squeaking? Well, this cabbage and potatoes cooking in a skillet makes THAT noise. Hence the name.
“Bubble and squeak is a traditional British breakfast made from boiled potatoes and cabbage. In modern times it is a dish made with the shallow-fried leftover vegetables from a roast dinner. … The dish is so named because the cabbage makes bubbling andsqueaking sounds during the cooking process.”
Somewhat the same, but this is my personal version because, well, it just tastes great!
It’s also great as a side if you just cook the vegetables in some oil or in bacon grease if you want to add bacon to it at the end-cook the bacon first, chop it up and fry the cabbage/potatoes/onion in the bacon grease.
Bubble & Squeak
- 4 T. oil
- 1/2 cup flour
- 4 pork chops
- 1 small head green cabbage, or 1/2 large, core removed and sliced or chopped
- 4 medium russet potatoes, peeled & cubed
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 t. salt
- 1/2 t. pepper
In a large cast iron or nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium high heat while preparing pork chops. Salt and pepper and dredge in flour; shake off excess.
Cook two at a time in oil, 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cook thoroughly through. Drain on paper towels.
In the leftover oil, add the potatoes and onion and salt and pepper to taste. Cook on medium high heat 3 minutes, turn and cook on other side.
Add the cabbage to the top of the potato mixture in pan, another layer of salt and pepper, then top with butter and cover with foil or lid. Cook 5 minutes on medium heat, stir and cook an additional 5 minutes.
