Bubbles and Squeak

Several years ago, I became interested in English dishes, for whatever reason! Curiosity, I suppose.

My good friend from the west end of England gave me this recipe and I make it occasionally. As mentioned below in the comments, the name of the dish comes from the noise it makes when it's cooking! Fun!

It's great as it is, however if you'd like a little more "punch", try adding a little seasoned salt or salt free seasoning.
