Bubble 'n Squeak

Why "bubble 'n squeak," you ask? This traditional British dish features cabbage, ham and/or bacon and potatoes, and the cabbage squeaks as it bubbles! It's also the perfect way to use up a cabbage, left-over potatoes and ham! Simply delicious! 

Bubble 'n Squeak


  • 1/2 medium head cabbage, sliced
  • 3 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cubed cooked ham
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 cups potatoes - baked, cooled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • Directions
  1. In a medium saucepan, cook cabbage in a small amount of water for about 5 minutes, or until tender. Drain, and set aside.
  2. In a well-seasoned cast iron skillet, cook bacon and onion until onion is soft and bacon is cooked. Add ham, and cook until heated through. Add butter, then mix in the cooked cabbage and potatoes. Season with paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook until browned on bottom, turn, and brown again.
