Well in our house that’s a recipe for bubble n’ squeak with cold meat sliced on top…..except the other night I was inspired to do something a little different.
The and bubble n’ squeak (listen to it while it’s cooking in the pan and you’ll hear where the name comes from) I made as normal – the vegetables mashed up and fried in a non-stick saute pan with the aid of some olive oil and a little knob of butter.
Only this time I fashioned the mashup into a potato-like pancake and cooked it until it started to crisp around the edges. Next I added some freshly steamed spinach (with a little added hot red pepper flakes) to the perimeter of the pan.
The thinly sliced leftover prime rib went in with the spinach and, for full hearty effect, I added two fried eggs on top of the pancake.
A fancy fry up to be honest, but fun and fulfilling at the same time.
