Favorite Meal of the Day

Updated on June 25, 2011

Bubble and Squeak


It is a weekend or just a day off. You get up a little late and make a cup of coffee.

You relax, read a newspaper, watch a morning show, do some chores or just go on your PC for a while.

You come to a break in what you are doing. You feel hungry and look at the clock. It is between 10 and 11, too late for breakfast, too early for lunch.

Great: you will make Brunch, a combination of breakfast and lunch.

Hopefully you will have the makings for an English favorite, “Bubble and Squeak”. This is leftover potatoes and vegetables that are mixed together and fried. The name comes from the noise it makes whilst frying. You fry on both sides until they start to become brown and crispy.

To this you add sausage and/or bacon or maybe a steak instead. To the side you have fried mushrooms and a fried tomato. Just cut the tomato in half then fry it till the skin starts to peel off.

To top this off, you add a fried egg done your favorite style.

With this you have fried bread or toast.

If I do not have the makings for bubble and squeak, I do fries. Nothing fancy, I just wash a potato or two, jab them with a fork several times and put them in the micro wave. When they are cooked, I cut them in slices then fry the slices on both sides till they are crispy.

This is my favorite meal of the day. It is filling and will last you through till an evening dinner.

Another good thing with this meal is that although you would probably enjoy a fruit juice with this, it isn’t too early to have something a little stronger if it takes your mood.
