Oven Bubble and Squeak

Oven Bubble and Squeak


What is Oven Bubble and Squeak? Why, nothing more than leftover cabbage and potatoes fried up into a crispy, frugal weeknight supper. This great casserole recipe saves a bit of time (and calories) by oven-baking instead of frying on the stove top.


Cooking Time35 min

Cooking MethodCasserole


  • 1 small head of cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 russet potatoes, peeled, cooked, and mashed, or 2 to 3 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Lightly grease 9 by 13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray or butter.
  3. Cut the cabbage in quarters from top to bottom, and cut the stem at an angle to remove the hard inner core. Finely slice each quarter into thin ribbons.
  4. Bring about an inch of water to a boil in a deep pot, and add the cabbage. Cover the pot tightly and cook the cabbage for 7 minutes, or until very tender. Drain and set aside to cool.
  5. Heat the butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat.
  6. When the butter foams and then subsides, add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes.
  7. In a large bowl, mix the cooked onion, mashed potatoes, and cabbage with the salt and pepper.
  8. Press the mixture into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle the top with a little extra salt and pepper. Bake for 35 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Serve hot.

I took this recipe and adapted it. I used my leftover sauerkraut recipe that I used with Kielbasy and added mashed potatoes and some additional bacon bits. Excellent! It already had carmelized onions and a dash of onion soup mix. My mother used to add additional cooked cabbage, but I do not think it needs it. Give it a try.

This recipe has no "squeak"! It needs pork.

Bubble and Squeak is actually a traditional ENGLISH dish - I received this recipe in an email about vintage German dishes. However, no matter its origin, it is delicious!
