This is so simple it probably doesn’t deserve a post on a blog anywhere! Sometimes though, the simplest ideas are the tastiest.
When did you last have good old bubble and squeak? It’s not just for Christmas!
Not only can you pack it full of nutritious veg, but you can add a little grating of tasty cheese, or a sprinkling of herbs. Kids will love the different textures, the creamy insides and the best bit…the crunchy jacket it all comes wrapped in.
I won’t bore you with a recipe, but I love to make this with the leftovers from a roast dinner. Chop up a few spoonfuls of mixed veg, carrots, broccoli, sweetcorn…whatever is going…then add a few potatoes and mash it all together until it starts to combine and hold together. I added a little grating of cheese, I get nervous to give the little guy too much cheese so this is a great way to make a little go a long way.
Then simply press and shape tightly into kiddie size patties and fry gently in a little olive oil until crispy on the outside.
And a little addictive!!
I made six, but only three escaped my mouth and made it to the little guy patiently waiting for his lunch!!
