Bubble & Squeak With Hollandaise On Fried Bread

This is the gourmet version of bubble and squeak – very rich, but irresistible. You can buy hollandaise sauce in a jar if you're short on time – it's obviously not the same as the real thing, but it will get the job done.

2 streaky bacon rashers
Dripping, oil, or butter, for frying
140g of boiled & mashed potato (leftover is fine)
1 handful of cooked cabbage, or any leftover green vegetables, roughly chopped
2 thick slices of white bread
2-3 tbsp of store-bought hollandaise sauce
A little milk, if needed
Salt & freshly ground black pepper
Step 1

Fry the bacon in a little fat until it is crisp all over. Lift out the rashers, allow to cool, then chop them up.

Step 2

Mix the potato, green vegetables and bacon bits together. Taste the mixture and add salt and pepper as necessary. Shape into 2 patties each about 2.5cm thick.

Step 3

Fry the slices of bread on both sides in the bacon pan, adding a little more fat if needed, then put them on separate warm plates. In the same pan, fry the potato patties gently to brown both sides and heat through. Put them on top of the bread.

Step 4

Spoon over the hollandaise sauce. (You may need to thin it with a little milk to get it to a just-pouring consistency.) Grind a little pepper on top.
