Bubble 'N' Squeak


We had some left over Chicken, vegetables and mash Potatoes. To me that spells Bubble N Squeak. But that’s a bit boring really isn’t it?

So we blitzed a quarter of a Giant Yorkshire Pudding to make Gluten Free “Bread Crumbs”, Used a glass the press the Bubble N Squeak into disks and crumbed them!

Served with home made Marie Rose sauce as a bit of a dressing, jacket spuds and a bit of veg we had a very substantial meal for about £1 each!

Kebda Roast Chicken Recipe


We had some of Susan Rimington's Kebda sauce left over from yesterdays virtual trip to The Yemen in the fridge. (  ) With the addition of a couple of Carrots and Onions we've just had a pretty spectacular roast Chicken casserole.

We had ours with Mustard mashed spud and Red & Green Cabbage. It’s a Bubble and Squeak gig with the left over Chicken, mash and veg tomorrow, nothing goes to waste here!

Cold Turkey Drummer Salad recipe

We've had quite a few fairly complicated dishes recently. Generally within our £4 budget. But sometimes we just fancy something simple. It was my turn to cook the other evening and we had a leftover Turkey Drummer, so I threw this together. It's not "Big & Clever" but it did the trick on a warm evening.


  • A Turkey Drummer cut into chunks with the ligament quills removed
  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • Salad of your choice
  • Grated Cheese
  • Mayonnaise
  • ¼ of a cooled giant Yorkshire Pudding (Gluten free in our case) broken up


(1) Made your salad with the Salad, Turkey, halved boiled Eggs and Mayonnaise.

(2) Dress with the Yorkshire Pudding and Grated Cheese.


Yemeni Kebda Recipe

We’ve been playing at Around The World for £4 Or Less again. We’re having a bit of trouble with a nation beginning with “X” So we moved on to The Republic of Yemen for “Y”

This dish is traditionally served for Breakfast with poached or scrambled Egg, we’re guessing they’re not big on lunch in The Yemen – this was a very well flavoured and filling meal!


1 Sheep Liver, chopped
1 Red & 1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Onion, chopped
1 Tomato, chopped
1/2 cup Tomato Puree
¼ tin of  chopped Tomatoes
2-3 Red Chillies
1 tsp. Hawaij Spice mix (See below)
3 Cloves of Garlic, minced
2 tbsp. Oil
1/4 tsp. Salt
An Egg each

Ingredients for the Hawaij Spice mix:-

2 tbsp Cumin Seeds
1 tbsp Caraway Seeds
1 tbsp Coriander Seeds
1 1/2 tbsp Ground Turmeric
1 1/2 tbsp Black Peppercorns
2 tbsp Cardamom  Pods

Method for the spice mix:-

(1) Lightly toast the Cumin, Caraway and Coriander seeds over medium heat for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
(2) Grind all the ingredients once cooled in a coffee grinder or food processor.


(1) Fry the Onions in Oil over medium-high heat. When the Onions start to brown, add the Garlic and Chilli. Cook for about 30 seconds until the Garlic is fragrant.
(2) Add in the chopped Liver and brown this on all sides.
(3) Add the tomato Puree, chopped Tomatoes, Hawaij, and salt. Mix together and cook until the Liver is nearly cooked through, about 15-20 mins.
(4) At the end, add in the Bell peppers and cook for a few minutes more, until the Peppers are  cooked through.
(5) Fry an Egg and serve over your Kebda

You might want to serve with a little toasted bread, but we really didn’t think it needed it.

Dodgy Spring Rolls recipe

We bought these Rice Wafers from the local Chinese Supermarket. They’ve sat in the draw for months. The main problem is that we thought we could use them as replacements for Wanton Wraps which are Wheat based (Not good for Sue) and the basis of your more traditional Spring Roll. WRONG!

As soon as you soak them in warm water they curl up and weld together in an very annoying clump! So as an experiment I whisked a couple of eggs, dunked the Rice paper disks in tepid water and then egg washed them. Yay it worked!!!! They don’t stick together but the parcels remain intact when you fry them.

I stuffed ours with some shredded left over cooked Chicken, Soy Sauce (Too much actually) grated Carrot, Lettuce etc. They were quite convincing to be fair. Served with the left over Welsh Potato Cake and a thrown together Coleslaw it was a bit of a mongrel dinner, but quite good.
