Boxing Day Bubble-and-Squeak

A classic Boxing day dinner jazzed up with cranberry gravy, juicy slices of Christmas turkey, sage and walnuts. Don’t dismiss this dish for its rather ugly look – it’s bursting with flavour.


for this dish, you need a potato base and then any leftover veg that takes your fancy. To recreate this exact recipe, here is what I used.

4 cold goose fat roasted potatoes (4 pieces, not 4 whole potatoes!)

cold honey roasted parsnips and carrots (about 1 whole parsnip and 1/2 large carrot)

5 brussel sprouts, cooked

5 sage leaves, finely chopped

5 walnuts, roughly chopped

turkey, cooked and thinly sliced

turkey gravy

cranberry and port sauce

rocket leaves

olive oil, for cooking

salt and pepper




(preheat oven to 180*c)

– thinly slice turkey, wrap in foil and place in oven to warm while you make the bubble and squeak

– dice all potatoes and veg

– heat olive oil in a non-stick frying pan and throw in all your potatoes and veg, along with the sage and walnuts

– stir now and then until the veg begins to brown, then crush with a potato masher

– press into the pan and leave for a few minutes, then turn over a few times and press into the pan again

– repeat the previous process until the bubble and squeak begins to crisp up and is heated through

– season with salt and pepper

– heat your gravy with a dollop of cranberry and port sauce to taste – the sauce adds sweetness to the gravy which works well with the bubble and squeak

– remove turkey from oven

– place a bed of rocket on your plate and top with your bubble and squeak (I used a large round cookie butter to make neat circles)

– place over a few slices of turkey and pour over gravy

– enjoy by the fire!
