Boxing Day Bubble'n'Squeak
A hearty, tasty traditional British dish for leftovers. This Canadian Boxing Day variation is just as tasty and uses up the leftovers from our Canadian/American Christmas dinner. My husband and his family from the UK love this New World twist on their comfort food dish.
You can spoon the entire mixture into the skillet and cook until nice and golden brown. This is when this dish will really bubble and squeak for you!
This dish is often part of a full English breakfast, and will serve up to 8 with the accompanying breakfast choices. We make it the brekkie at this home.
We serve this dish with a pickle plate including beet pickle, sweet gherkin, pickle onion, and picallili or green tomato relish. The choice of sauce is always hotly debated at our house: some like red sauce (catsup) and others brown sauce (HP type sauce). Excellent, simple family brunch recipe that really creates tradition. Children love the name and listening to it cook.
This dish is customarily made with leftover cooked vegetables. Cooking instructions are provided in case you do not have them on hand.
