Bubble 'n' Squeak

Rated as 4.46 out of 5 Stars

"Cabbage, bacon, ham, onion and leftover potatoes make up this tasty, easy dish. This is a great way to get the kids to eat cabbage. Using leftovers makes this main dish especially quick to make. I recommend using a good nonstick pan. Serve with ketchup, if desired."

Well it looks like I'm going to be the black sheep here. My hubby thought it was pretty good, but also didn't ask for a repeat performance. The kids and I didn't really care for it. Maybe just t...
