Butterbean bubble and squeak patties

Bubble and squeak is traditionally made from leftover potato and cabbage, so you don't need to be too precise about quantities, use whatever you've got and however much you want to eat! If you don't have leftovers, cook the potato and cabbage and allow them to cool before making the patties.

Butterbeans do not feature in the traditional recipe for bubble and squeak but I have added them here to make a more complete meal nutrition-wise - and because mashed butterbeans go nicely with mashed potato!

Tinned butterbeans
Mashed potato, cold
Chopped cabbage, cold
Breadcrumbs for coating
salt and pepper to taste (optional)

Mash the butterbeans in a bowl, add the potato and cabbage and mash together well. Add salt and pepper if wished. Take lumps of mixture and form them into burger shapes, coat with breadcrumbs and fry in a small amount of oil for a few minutes until the patties are heated through and the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
