6 large potatoes
1/4 head of cabbage
1/2 cup cooked ham or bacon, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
Boil and mash the potatoes.
Fry the chopped onions until brown and add to the mashed potatoes.
Roughly chop the cabbage and boil in salted water until just cooked.
Drain & add to the mashed potatoes together with the chopped cooked ham or bacon.
Season with white pepper (black will work too) and salt to taste.
Allow to cool slightly.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet.
Shape the bubble and squeak mixture into large balls,
place in the hot oil,
& flatten down with a spatula to make pancake like shapes.
Cook until golden brown, turn, and repeat for the other side.
Traditionally, this dish was served sprinkled with vinegar, though we prefer to omit the vinegar. Good with roasts and poultry.
