  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (Gas mark 6/400°F).
  2. Roughly chop and boil the potatoes until cooked through, around 10-15 minutes.

  4. Add plenty of salt & pepper to taste  (you can leave out the salt if serving to little ones under 12 months).
  5. Mash the vegetables and potatoes together.
  6. Grate the cheddar cheese and add to the mixture, stirring until well combined.
  7. Melt the butter, then liberally brush the melted butter around the holes of a 12 whole muffin tin to grease.

  9. Spoon the bubble and squeak mixture into the muffin tin and pat down with the back of a fork.
  10. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until golden brown and crispy.

Recipe Notes

Notes: *If you have any leftover potatoes, do use them and if you don't have quite enough, boil a few extra to make the total potato amount up to 600g.  **Traditional bubble and squeak uses Brussels sprouts or cabbage for the vegetable element but any leftover vegetables will work - just make sure you chop them into bite-sized chunks. I used sprouts, carrots and leeks in mine.
