Quick and Simple Healthy Bubble & Squeak


Bubble and squeak is one of God’s finest creations, and one of the essential parts of a proper fry up.

For reference, these are;

  • Egg
  • Bacon
  • Sausage
  • Black pudding
  • Beans
  • Hash brown
  • Grilled tomato
  • Mushrooms
  • Bubble and squeak
  • Brown Sauce

Anything further is optional. And I would insist on proper bubble and squeak, as in fried, and with spuds for breakfast.

This option is more for a nice evening meal, as an interesting side. I tend to get healthier as the day goes on!

It’s bloody simple and tasty as hell.


  • 500g Sweet Potato
  • 150g Kale or trimmed Cavolo Nero
  • A wodge of butter or butter type product.
  • 1 tbsp. cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp. coriander seeds
  • Chilli flakes, to taste


A first for me… use a microwave. Blast the sweet potatoes till they’re soft all the way through. You could steam them. But really… why bother? It’ll take about 8 minutes.

While these are nuked, bake the cumin and coriander seeds for 4 or 5 minutes, till they smell nice.

Once everything is done, put the flesh of the potatoes, kale, baked seeds and butter in a large baking dish and smoosh it all together. Add salt to taste, then bake at about 180c for 20 minutes.


Simple and tasty, a solid weeknight snack or side.
