Curried Bubble & Squeak Hash

Bubble And Squeak Hash (8)

While I would not want to invite any speculation that I deliberately infected my loved ones, their stomach viruses did in fact work out somewhat in my favour.  The three components of Christmas dinner that I find entirely disgusting were all eliminated as a result of their illness – the Christmas goose was cancelled at the last minute (though I suspect it was too late to save the poor beasts life), which meant there were also no goose fat roasties, and, actually completely unrelated to the stomach bugs, my mother forgot to soak the mushy peas so they too were off the menu.  Dinner consisted of an emergency turkey joint defrosted in the nick of time and all my vegetable dishes.  Yum yum!

Christmas Day (6)

As everyone was still a bit unwell, there were plenty of leftovers.  This Boxing Day dish made good use of one of my Christmas presents (Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s veggie cookbook) and the leftover Christmas dinner.  I’d never had bubble and squeak before, being so firmly opposed to sprouts and cabbage, but I’ll definitely be having it again – this was sublime!

Happily, we still have a kitchen full of leftover treats, snacks and cheese, so the Christmas feasting can continue comfortably into the new year.  Hurrah!

3.  Add the potato and cook for a few minutes – don’t be afraid to scrape the bottom of the pan to get the crusty bits involved.
