Potatoes and Cabbage have been sustenance foods in Ireland for ages. This classic Irish dish combines the mashed potatoes and cabbage. Add some chopped boiled beef and you have a dish known as Bubble & Squeak.

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups finely shredded green cabbage
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 6 cooked potatoes, mashed or 4 cups prepared instant mashed potatoes (prepared according to directions on package)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine

Place cabbage, onion, and water in a saucepan or Dutch oven and quickly bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 8 minutes until tender. Do not overcook.
