Fork Eggy Bubble and Squeak Cakes

Cooking time: 10

Preparation: 15 minutes

Cooking: 10 minutes

Serves: 4


This is a great way of using up left over veg – any will do.


  • 5 large Bird Bros eggs
  • 450g mashed potato
  • 225g cooked vegetables such as carrots, cabbage, leeks etc
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 60g plain flour
  • 90ml vegetable oil for frying


  1. Place four of the eggs in a medium pan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 7mins. Drain the eggs, then rinse in cold water. Tap the shells all over and peel away. Roughly chop the eggs.

  2. Place the potato and vegetables in a large bowl with the chopped eggs and seasoning. Beat the remaining egg, add to the potatoes and mix well. Divide and shape the mixture into 8 small or 4 large cakes, dusting them lightly with flour as you go.

  3. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan, add the cakes and cook for 8-10mins turning over half way through until they are golden brown on both sides. Lift from the pan with a spatula, draining on kitchen paper then serve hot.
