Welcome to my Air Fryer bubble and squeak recipe.
I don’t know about you but Boxing Day (a bank holiday observed in England the day after Christmas) has always been the day when I have eaten bubble and squeak.
Bubble and squeak is traditionally a meal made with mash, cabbage and eggs and is either made into a pancake or baked in the oven. But for many it is used to mix together all the food that is leftover from Christmas so that you have no food waste and can have some comfort food.
Quite often ours will include some cabbage, mash, sprouts, vegetable bake, stuffing and even the odd parsnip that was left over from the roast potatoes tray. We then end up feeling just as stuffed on Boxing Day that we did on Christmas Day.
In many ways (thanks to the egg) it is like a vegetable omelette that has become a traditional thing for many Brits.
We also celebrate Thanksgiving (thanks to our American family for introducing us to another day to eat WAY too much food) and often have bubble and squeak the day after Thanksgiving.
But each time I eat it (because it is not very often) it becomes a delicious festive meal.
