Classic bubble and squeak
Christmas time isn’t complete without this classic leftover dish.

1 tbsp duck fat, goose fat or butter

4 rashers of streaky bacon, chopped

1 onion, finely sliced

1 garlic clove, chopped

15-20 cooked brussels sprouts, sliced, or leftover boiled cabbage, shredded

400g cold leftover mashed potatoes, or cold crushed boiled potatoes, cooked carrots, roughly sliced

Melt the fat in a non-stick pan, allow it to get quite hot, then add the bacon. As it begins to brown, add the onion and garlic, stirring.  

Add the sliced sprouts or cabbage and let it colour slightly.

Add the potato and the carrots and mix everything together pushing it down so that the mixture covers the base of the pan – allow the mixture to catch slightly on the base of the pan before turning it over and doing the same again.

Serve hot.
