Bubble and Squeak Recipe

Tonight I made what I am choosing to call Bubble and Squeak

1 tbs butter
2 onions (quartered and sliced thin)
4 potatoes (quartered and sliced thin)
1/4 of a large head of Cabbage (sliced thin)
1 pkg kielbasa sliced thin (1/4in slices)
salt & pepper to taste (don't over salt, the kielbasa is salty)

Saute the onions in the butter. Add the potato, cabbage and kielbasa. Season with pepper. Add enough water to keep things from sticking to the bottom. simmer on low until everything is cooked.
(I give it at least an hour. But it should take less.)

I am familiar with the New England Boiled Dinner which is pretty much corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and any other root vegetables you have handy. And Corned Beef Hash which is pretty much fried left over New England Boiled Dinner.

But since "Bubble and Squeak" was a "foreign" dish it didn't occur to me that it was just left over "English Roast Dinner". My recipe is more of a pre-emptive boiled hash.

It tastes good! :-)


That would be a popular din din here LOL :)

Sounds GOOD


I, for some reason

Really like that good Comfort food of a cabbage and Potatoe type stew....

It is always the epitome of what living is...

Re: Sounds GOOD

Strangely enough I don't remember my parents cooking any cabbage stews. I remember fried cabbage, and steamed cabbage. But now stews with cabbage. After I left my parents house I started making corned beef and cabbage once a year, but (as my father would say) that isn't my parents fault.

I was sitting here trying to think of what my comfort foods are and most of them are foods my father cooked. Which is strange since he rarely cooked, my mother was the one who put food on the table every night. Dad just stepped in every once in a while.

Dad would make Coq au Vin, Hungarian goulash, Moo Goo Gai Pan (which I hated, probably because of the ginger), beef and barley stew (which smelled really bad but tasted great), broiled steaks, pizza, gingerbread cake, and cinnamon rolls.

My dad used to make a stew he called 'Chicken Potpie' (Bott Boi) he always made a big deal about the pronunciation of the word Potpie. It isn't what people think of as pot pie. His mom was Pennsylvania Dutch and that was probably one of her recipes. It is basically chicken stew with noodles made of pie crust dough.
