Leftover potato fried with cooked cabbage or brussels sprouts is the ultimate breakfast. Mixing the potato with water makes a wetter mixture, which, as it cooks, produces steam that creates a thick, golden crust. Don't be tempted to flip it until the crust is well formed - it takes a good 10 minutes over medium heat on each side. Serve with fried eggs, crispy bacon rashers and toast, if wished.
|3 cups||Mashed potato|
|1 cup||Cabbage, cooked and shredded; or use brussels sprouts|
|1 Tbsp||Olive oil|
- Mix mashed potato with cabbage or brussels sprouts, salt, pepper and water. Heat oil and butter in a heavy-based frying pan, add potato mixture and cook over medium heat without turning until well crusted and golden (about 10 minutes).
- Turn in large sections and cook the other side (another 10 minutes). Serve with eggs, bacon and toast, if using.
