Turn zero into hero with the help of our amazing bubble and squeak hack.

Fast and flavoursome, cosy and comforting, transform your leftover veg with this scrumptious take on a British classic – perfect for breakfast, lunch, supper or snacks.

We show you how in less than 20 seconds, in this snack-sized video.


What you need

Simply take the leftovers you want to give a delicious makeover (discarded Sunday dinners are perfect) and get set for a heart-warmingly simple bubble and squeak recipe.

With this top tip, you can turn uninspiring vegetables into a quick and tasty, any-time-of-day sensation.

We recommend:

Grab the pan, your leftover veg (brussels sprouts, carrots or cabbage are always a good bet) and don’t forget a smattering of creamy, mouth-wateringly moreish butter. Add some on top of the veg to begin with as it fries, then a little bit extra to top it all off at the end.

It’s perfect for starting off a day in bright, uplifting fashion – or rustling up a quick weeknight dinner without the stress – and with none of the mess.

Our amazing hack is as simple as throwing it all in a pan, then lather with melting butter for a perfect topping.


The extras

Pair your bubble and squeak with two fried eggs for an extra flavour boost, or some chopped tomato and onion for a little zing.


Tasty results

Lightly fried, your leftover veg and spuds will be turned into a delicious bit of food heaven. Crispy on the outside and soft and hearty in the middle, with a buttery touch for that perfect end to every bite.
