Bubble & Squeak Recipe

Bubble & Squeak Recipe

As a nod to our very own Kieron Hales, Cornman Farms’ Managing Partner and Chef who hails from England, we are sharing a classic British dish that is typically served the day after a Sunday Roast (a ritual weekly meal for most families in England). Incorporating the previous night’s leftovers, this recipe is quick, simple and guess what else, it bubbles and squeaks as it cooks!

Ingredients:
Keep in mind, most of these ingredients can be replaced with whatever you cooked for dinner the night before, such as Roast Chicken for the Roast Beef.

  • 25g (1 oz) Bacon Fat
  • 5 or 6 cold roast potatoes, cut into small chunks
  • 100g (4ozs) Cooked carrots, (about 4 carrots) cut into small pieces if large
  • 25g (1 oz.) Cooked Onions
  • 25g (1 oz.) Cooked Diced Sausage
  • 50g (2 oz.) Bacon pre cooked and cut into small pieces
  • 25g (1 oz.) Sliced Shallots
  • 25g (1 oz.) Corn
  • 25g (1 oz.) Peas
  • 100g (4 oz.) Cold cooked sliced roast beef, about cut into small pieces
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Method:

  1. First step, up to 1 day before, have a wonderful Roast beef dinner preferably on a Sunday so you can start your week correctly with a full blown breakfast.
  2. Heat the bacon fat in a heavy cast iron pan till lightly smoking
  3. Add the potatoes and carrots, fry over medium heat until they just start to brown
  4. Add the Bacon and Sausage, saute for 3 minutes
  5. Add peas, corn and beef and saute for 3 minutes more
  6. Pressing down in the hash with a spatula, allow up to 5 minutes to become sizzling hot and golden brown
  7. Transfer to a pan

Meanwhile, we need a perfect fried egg which will take us 6 minutes, let’s get started…

Perfect Egg Takes Time | Low heat = Perfect Egg

  • 1 non stick pan
  • 25g (2 oz.) Butter Salted
  • Tea Cup
  • 1 Farm Fresh egg preferably from that morning or the Sunday before at room temperature
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Method:

  1. Take a nonstick pan and place on a very low heat
  2. Add the knob of butter into the pan. You should not hear it sizzle, if you do the pan is too hot.
  3. Rub the butter in the pan, producing an even layer using kitchen towel
  4. Crack egg into a tea cup
  5. Gently pour into the pan and then do nothing for 4-5 minutes
  6. Remove from the pan and you have a beautiful perfect egg
  7. Add to the top of the Bubble and Squeak hash and enjoy!
