Bubble And Squeak
A classic dish of leftover cooked potatoes, cabbage and beef.
The name imitates the sounds of cooking, the vegetables and meat first bubbling away as they boiled and later squeaking in the frying pan.
Simple and old fashioned it may be, but it’s still an appetising way to deal with the remains of a joint.

450 g (1 lb) potatoes, cooked and mashed
225 g (8 oz) cooked cabbage, finely chopped
