👩🍳 How To Air Fry Bubble and Squeak
Start by putting all your leftover roast potatoes and vegetables in a bowl.
Mash the vegetables up using a potato masher until they’re well combined but still have some texture. If you’re using herbs, mix them in now for that extra burst of flavour.
Once mashed, shape the mixture into patties. This part can be especially fun if you’re cooking with kids – they love getting their hands messy!
You can lightly oil the base of your air fryer, or place the patties on parchment paper in the air fryer basket to prevent sticking.
Gently brush them with a little olive oil to get that perfect golden crispness.
Then, cook them at 200°C/390°F for about 15 minutes, turning halfway through. The air fryer is ideal for this recipe, as it cooks the patties evenly and gives them a delightful crispy texture without the need for deep frying.
🍽 What To Serve With Bubble and Squeak
Bubble and Squeak patties are incredibly versatile. Serve them as a delicious breakfast with a side of eggs, as a hearty lunch with a fresh salad, or even as a side for your dinner. They’re particularly great with a dollop of chutney or a spoonful of sour cream.
