Chef James’ leftovers bubble & squeak

WHAT YOU NEED… (for one portion!)

  • 1/2 shallot
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 10g chives
  • 1/2 stock cube (chicken)
  • Leftover root veg: Roast potatoes, parsnips and carrots
  • Leftover sprouts
  • 2 eggs
  • Sliced turkey
  • Braised cabbage
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Cashew cream
  • 20g parmesan cheez (or nutritional yeast)
  • 1 tbsp cranberry sauce


  1. Boil your kettle. Meanwhile, thinly slice your shallot, garlic and chives. Dissolve your stock cube in 100ml of boiling water.
  2. Make the bubble and squeak – roughly chop the potatoes, carrots, parsnips and sprouts. Place them into a pan with 1 egg, a pinch of salt and pepper then mash. Once heated through, remove from the pan and shape your bubble & squeak into a ball.
  3. Next heat a frying pan with 1 tsp of oil. Take your bubble & squeak and pat it down in the pan (keep it an inch or so thick). Cook on both sides for 5 mins, then take out to one side and keep warm.
  4. In the same pan, add the sliced turkey and cabbage to warm though for 5 mins.
  5. Make the cheese and chive sauce – In a medium sized pan with 1 tsp of oil, add the garlic, shallots and cook for 2 mins. Add the stock and cook for 1 min, then add the maple, mustard, cashew cream and parmesan cheez, cooking for 4 mins on a gentle simmer. Finally add 3/4 of the chives.
  6. Meanwhile, in a pan of simmering water, crack the egg to poach for 5 mins. Take out and drain on a cloth to get rid of any excess water. (Need a hand poaching your eggs? Watch out chef’s tips video here)
  7. To plate, add the bubble & squeak to the centre of the plate, place the turkey on top, followed by the red cabbage and poached egg. Add a spoonful of cranberry sauce and spoon over the cheese and chive sauce. Sprinkle over the remaining chives.
