Tomato bubble & squeak cakes

Tomato bubble & squeak cakes


  1. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, leftover vegetables, garlic, chilli, watercress, eggs and flour. Season with pepper and loosely mix in the tomato chutney and parsley.
  2. Dust your hands with flour and then shape the mixture into palm-sized cakes, dusting your hands further, if needed. If you have time, place the cakes on greaseproof paper and chill for 10 mins.
  3. In a large saucepan, heat enough oil to shallow fry the cakes. When the oil is sizzling, add the cakes and fry for 1-2 mins, until golden, then turn over and cook the other side for the same amount of time. You may have to do this in batches, depending on the size of your pan.
  4. Drain on kitchen paper. Serve with griddled bacon and mushrooms and extra chutney.
