SRC - Kale Bubble and Squeak

Time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal.  This month I was assigned the blog Jane's adventures in dinner.  I loved looking through this blog, so many amazing recipes and lovely pictures and I was thrilled to find so many English recipes.  I was tempted by the English breakfast baskets as it looked like such a fun twist on a classic English breakfast.  However, as soon as I found the kale bubble and squeak  I knew I had to make itGrowing up in England, bubble and squeak to me means boxing day dinner made with all the Christmas dinner vegetable leftovers and served with the leftover turkey, Branston pickle and pickled onions, and as much as I love bubble and squeak it isn't something I ever think to make any other time of the year.   I really liked the addition of the kale and bacon and it was so nice to have bubble and squeak more than once a year!

Oh yes, I had never heard of putting an egg on bubble and squeak, but I love eggs and was game to try it.  Wow!  We both loved it!   We will definitely be doing that again.  Warm, runny yolk over the bubble and squeak was perfect.




4 cups cooked potatoes (I used red creamers)
2 cups cooked kale
2 tbsp fresh parsley 
2 tbsp fresh sage
2 tbsp fresh chives
1 garlic clove, minced
2 slices of bacon, diced
salt and pepper
poached eggs

Roughly mash the potatoes and set aside.

Fry the bacon,  add the potatoes to the pan along with the herbs, kale and garlic.   Fry until browned on the bottom and flip over in sections, fry until browned on other side and top with poached eggs.

I love the addition of the kale in this version, and you can never go wrong with a runny egg.
