Thursday Recipe - Bubble & Squeak and Spotted Dick

I'm not British, never even been close to the UK, but when I heard about this dish, I couldn't help figuring out how to cook it. My kids request this one. It's a fast and easy dinner if you add a fruit salad and bread. Spotted Dick is a raisin bread pudding. Nice dessert. Here, I'll give you all the recipes.

Bubble & Squeak

12 oz. link sausage or 12 oz. Kielbasa sausage, sliced
1/2 c. sliced onion
4 c. shredded cabbage
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper

Fry sausage until cooked through. Add onions, sauté until soft. Add cabbage, cover and cook until crisp-tender. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Serve nice and hot.

Winter Fruit Salad

1 can mandarin oranges
1 can chunk pineapple
2 kiwi fruit

Drain oranges and pineapple. Peel kiwi and dice. Toss all together.

Spotted Dick

6 slices soft bread
1/3 c. raisins
1/3 c. brown sugar
3 eggs
1 c. milk
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg

Tear bread into bite size pieces. Toss with raisins. Place in a greased 2 quart casserole. Beat sugar, eggs, milk, and spices until blended. Pour over bread. Bake at 350° for 35 - 45 minutes, until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let sit for 30 minutes before serving.


  1. Bubble and Squeak with red peppers was my favorite Christmas dinner ever. And with the red and green, it was also very festive, while being light on the tongue.


Keep it clean, keep it nice.
