My ancestors came from England on my paternal grandfather's side.
That's the only reason I can give for my obsession of British blog's and lifestyle.
Bubble and Squeak has been cooked on two blogs recently, Mamas Mercantile and Going Gently, so finally I went to Wikipedia to understand it. Turns out it's their version of hash, but always with cabbage thrown in it!
According to Wikipedia, it's called Bubble and Squeak because that's the sound cabbage makes when it cooks.
I hope someone British leaves a comment and let's us know if that's true or not. Frankly, I usually add cabbage to my hash and I've not heard any sounds at all.
Of course I had a slight inkling it was a dish made somehow with cabbage and potatoes as we use to adore watching Two Fat Ladies Can Cook, and they always seemed to be mulling over making Bubble and Squeak.
You can still watch Two Fat Ladies Can Cook episodes on youtube if you have a good sense of humor.
Thanks for dropping by!
