Baked Bubble & Squeak

4 people

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

2 tbsp butter

750g leftover mashed potato

4 poached eggs

6 crispy bacon rashers


Salt & Pepper

  1. Heat 1/2 tbsp of butter and a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Once the butter has melted and the pan is hot, add the kale and cook for 1-2 minutes until the kale has wilted.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the wilted kale with the mashed potatoes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Re-heat the large pan over medium-high heat with remaining 1/2 tbsp butter and a little more oil. Once butter has melted and is bubbling, spoon the mash mixture into the pan, spreading out in an even layer. Tip: If you don't have a very large pan, you can use two smaller ones instead.
  4. Fry the mash until the edges start to brown, for about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Melt the remining 1 tbsp butter in a small bowl in the microwave.
  6. If your pan is oven-proof, simply rough up the surface of the mash then brush it with the melted butter. Otherwise, spoon the mixture into a large baking dish, spreading it out in an even layer. Then using a fork, rough up the top of the mash and top with the melted butter.
  7. Place it under the grill until golden brown, for about 5 minutes.
  8. Remove the dish from the oven and sprinkle roughly broken pieces of bacon on top.
  9. Serve bubble and squeak with a poached egg, seasoned with a bit of salt or pepper.
