Mish Delish Good Food Blog

I’m a professional food stylist and currently prepping my own series of cookbooks and a cooking show. In my food catering business, Mishka La Mushka, I catered private and corporate functions and events big and small, designed food in hat boxes for the Spring Racing Carnival and created too many themed kids birthday parties to mention. But now I love food styling and sharing my fun food ideas with mums wanting to create restaurant-quality meals at home, for kids and family. So let’s get cooking!

After making a vegetable soup with a smoked ham bone from my favourite butcher, I was left with all this delicious slow cooked meat. Rather than putting in into the soup which already had loads of flavour, I turned the ham into a very rustic simple meal. You’ve got to love it when you create 2 meals with the one ingredient. Thrifty indeed.

Bubble n’ Squeak
Serves 2
You’ll need:
2 potato’s, peeled & chopped
1 tbs butter
1 baby purple cabbage or 1/4 cabbage, finely sliced
1 cup brussel sprouts, trimmed & halved
1 tbs seeded mustard
1 cup chopped ham
1/2 cup frozen peas
Olive oil
Salt & pepper

Bring the potatoes to the boil in cold water and simmer for 15 minutes, drain and mash up roughly with the butter and season with salt & pepper.

While the potatoes are cooking, saute the cabbage and the brussel sprouts in a little olive oil when starting to soften add the mustard and continue to saute until the veges start to caramelise.

Steam the peas for a few minutes and then add them to the fry pan along with the chopped ham and cook for a few more minutes. Finally add the potato and press the mixture into the base of the pan – like a fritatta (sorry I don’t have a photo of this) and drizzle with a little olive oil.

Place the fry pan under a hot grill to slightly brown and crunch up the top.

Flip the Bubble & Squeak onto a plate, cut into slices and serve.
