A recipe for Bubble and Squeak. A recipe for Bubble and Squeak with bangers. Bubble and Squeak with bangers recipe. Hi All! Teri is in London on vacation right now! You can see her travel adventures over on our instagram. We decided to make a dish called Bubble & Squeak with Bangers. Cute name, right? It’s a traditional English dish consisting of leftover winter vegetables (such as roasted potatoes, cabbage, brussels sprouts, carrots, etc) all mashed up, then pan fried like one big savory pancake (sort of)! We’ve made our own version of this cutely named dish and turned them into little mini vegetable cakes. We’re serving ours up with some bangers (duh) and a pretty awesome bourbon-mustard cream sauce.  Enjoy!

Bubble and Squeak with Bangers
Serves 6 to 8

bubble and squeak:
8 Brussels sprouts , stemmed and halved
1 carrot, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 parsnip, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 kohlrabi, chopped
1/2 turnip, chopped
1 tablespoon thyme
3 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 1/2 cups mashed potatoes, warmed
2 ounces goat cheese
salt and pepper to taste
8 small sausages (of your choice)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
mustard cream sauce:
2 tablespoons sweet cream butter, softened
3 tablespoons shallots, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons thyme minced
½ cup sweet bourbon
3 1/2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
1/2 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. For bubble and squeak: Place Brussels sprouts, carrot, parsnip, kohlrabi, turnip, and thyme onto a baking sheet and toss together with 1 1/2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast vegetables for 20 to 25 minutes or until browned and tender.
3. Transfer mixture to a food processor and pulse 6 to 8 times (you should have a coarse mealy texture). Place mashed potatoes, goat cheese and pureed vegetables into a mixing bowl and stir together until well mixed. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Place remaining oil in a heavy bottom skillet and place over medium-high heat. Form 1/3 cup patties with potato mixture and fry on each side for 2 to 3 minutes, flattening with the back of a spatula.
5. For bangers: Place sausages in a pot of water and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until cooked through. Pour oil into a heavy bottom skillet and sear sausages on each side, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
6. For mustard cream sauce: Place butter in a small skillet over medium heat and sauté shallots and garlic for about 3 minutes. Add thyme and continue to sauté for an additional minute. Deglaze pan with bourbon and simmer until almost all liquid has evaporated from pan. Add mustard and stir. Pour cream over mustard mixture and simmer until sauce has reduced by a third. Season with salt and pepper.
7. To serve: Place a couple vegetable cakes onto a plate, top with bangers and finish with a drizzle of sauce. Serve hot.

    Oh thank God! There is a line in the movie “Bringing down the House” where they reference Bubbles and Squeak. I thought it was just something they made up. Nice to know it’s real…lol. It looks really good too, so it may be something I will try.

    Bubble and squeak is usually made with the left-overs of a Sunday roast. I like it best with the remaining roast potatoes, parsnips and cabbage. It’s particularly good with a fried or poached egg on top (and brown sauce…I think you’d call it steak sauce). As always your pics look great – now craving B & S.

    LOVE bubble and squeak, and love your mini version. It’s one of those leftover dishes that is so easy to whip up, but you’ve taken it to the next level with lovely seasoning and those cute little sausages.

    I have to say, those are the cutest bangers I’ve ever seen! I’ve yet to make a dish because it looks “cute”–but will definitely try this one out!

    My heart sinks when I see ‘new’ recipes for things like Bubble and Squeak’.

    The whole point of B&S is to use up left over cooked potato and greens – anything else in it makes it quite a different creature.The B is the potato and the S is the greens, usually cabbage or sprouts.

    Carrots are anathema in it as they introduce a very sweet taste to the whole shebang.

    As for kohl rabi – it’s rarely used here in the UK – home of bubble and squeak.

      It’s just a variation, not that big of a deal or something to get upset over. Really. I know and understand all of those traditional things about the dish, but that’s the beauty of variations…you can make them how you please.

      Carrots and kohlrabi are pretty awesome…in any dish.

    You have made my tummy rumble!!! I love Bubble & Squeak (although minus sprouts for me!) and sausages…the perfect combo. The addition of a bourbon, mustard, cream sauce has sent me to heaven! I am heating my frying pan up asap to replicate :)

    This is my new favorite website! The pics make everything look so delicious!! I made this for dinner tonight and my mom and I loved it. The only thing I was a little confused about were the mashed potatoes in the recipe. I wasn’t sure if you wanted cooked potatoes that were mashed or prepared mashed potatoes (with milk & butter). Then again, I’m an amateur cook so maybe it’s my bad.
    Really great though and I can’t wait to try more of your recipes!

    I love this idea! Bravo network might was well be the only channel on our TV because that is what I watch. Love it all.
