Bubble n Squeak Waffles

If you've got some left over veg from your Sunday roast or extra veg you need to use up then you need to try these fun savoury waffles, the family will love them, in fact I deliberately make extra mash just so I can have these with my sausage and egg for brunch.

If you don't have a waffle grid you can always cook them on a griddle pan more like a pancake.

Serves 2

Prep time 10 mins

Cooking time 30 mins


For the Waffles

4-5 potatoes worth of leftover mash

1 large egg, beaten

Handful of cooked shredded cabbage

3 spring onions finely sliced

2tbsp plain flour

2tbsp butter

Salt and pepper to taste


Start by using 1tbsp of the butter and gently sauté your spring onions, once soft allow to cool.

Turn your waffle grid on and heat the oven to 160c.

In a large bowl add your leftover mash and cabbage, your cooled spring onions the beaten egg and then add the flour little by little, stirring after every addition of flour to until you get a thick porridge like consistency ... sounds weird but trust me it work, if you are unsure check out my instagram story highlights, there is a snippet of what consistency I look for.

Finally add a generous amount of salt and pepper.

Once your waffle machine is heated, grease the grids well with the remaining butter, add a big dollop of the bubble and squeak mixture, this will depend on what machine you have.

Pop the lid down and DO NOT open until all of the steam has stopped coming out, other wise you won't get a crispy exterior, this should take 10-15 mins depending on what machine you have.

Once the steam has stopped, open the waffle maker and carefully remove the waffles, place them on a baking tray and pop them in the preheated oven while you make the rest of the batch, this will also help to make them extra crispy on the outside.

Serve with a beautifully fried egg and some lovely herby sausages, what a winner.


The combinations are endless, you can add all sorts of leftover veg, brussels, carrots, sweetcorn, anything, add some cheese and beans for a lovely treat.
