When you think of proper English fare, bubble and squeak tops the list of traditional dinners in most households. Yesterday, how to cook the best roast potatoes was the word on everyone’s lips – but on Boxing Day the tables turn.
Throwing away food is a rare occurrence in a British household so being able to use up all the ingredients from dinner the day before in a new dish is preferable to home-grown chefs.
This bubble and squeak recipe will fill up the hungry tummies of every diner, without them realising it’s yesterday’s dinner re-hashed.
Tesco Real Food put together the recipe which is quick and easy. If that doesn’t take your fancy, why not try out Jamie Oliver’s turkey risotto recipe?
Left over turkey
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
100g (3 1/2oz) spinach
1 x 425g pack root veg mash
1/2 tsp smoked paprika, plus extra for serving
20g (3/4oz) butter
Heat the oil in a large frying pan set over a low-medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes, or until softened. Meanwhile, put the spinach in a colander and pour over a kettleful of freshly boiled water to wilt. Cool under the cold tap, then squeeze dry and roughly chop.
In a bowl, combine the onion and garlic, root veg mash, paprika, spinach and a little seasoning. Mix well.
In the same frying pan, melt the butter over a medium heat. Add the mash mixture in two halves, shaping into flattened patties with a spatula. Throw in chunks of cooked turkey. Cook for 6-8 minutes on each side, until golden and crisp.
Meanwhile, bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, then crack in the eggs at separate sides of the pan and cook for 4 minutes*.
Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. To serve, top each bubble and squeak with a poached egg and sprinkle with a little extra paprika.
