Funny what you fondly remember (sadly mum’s never looked like this)
As kids it was mum’s dreaded Sunday roast
that won the title of ‘meal we hate the most’
with mash, carrots and cabbage undercooked
making it palatable was always overlooked
but every Monday we kids were in clover
because all the food that had been left over
was transformed at the start of every week
into delicious rissoles with bubble and squeak.
Rissole – kind of burger made from cooked left over meat joints. A real art as they could easily become dry. Always padded out to go further with bread soaked in milk, minced and mixed by hand and flavoured with Worcester or Brown sauce.
Bubble & Squeak – Simply left over mashed potato mixed with the left over vegetables, mixed and fried.
