As promised, here is our lunch today, which consisted of cold meat (turkey, chicken, gammon), pigs in blankets (cocktail sausages wrapped in bacon), stuffing balls, and the Brit’s infamous bubble and squeak.
I did mine as a huge pancake today as it was easier than faffing about with little rounds that are a pain to turn over with utensils that basically are useless. The good thing with this is I could flip it.
Our bubble and squeak contained chopped boiled and roast potatoes, sprouts (yes, we are very fragrant and having a competition), green beans, carrots, broccoli and cauliflower.
I made up a small amount of instant mash (quick, easy and always a good standby in the cupboard), then added the leftovers and mixed them altogether.
I sprayed a little oil in the frying pan, and tipped the mix in, patting it down to the edges, cooking on a highish heat (my hob rings go up to 6 on the dial and this was 5).
I sprayed the top with a little oil and flipped it after about 8 minutes. It was doing well!
I turned the heat down to 3 after five minutes, and flipped it another couple of times to make sure it was hot all the way through.
I turned it onto a plate to cut it up as getting it out of the pan always results in a mess because of the wooden spatulas I have that simply are not up to the job. We had half to start with, and this was what was left on the plate.
So, here are our dinners:
Ah, but I forgot the most important thing on mine
