Corned Beef and Cabbage.
Being of Irish surname name, I have had many (many) conversations over the course of my life about St. Patrick’s Day traditions. Specifically, several people have shared (repeatedly) how corned beef and cabbage isn’t actually an Irish ‘thing’. Well, all of those people were right.
Insofar as it was not called corned beef and cabbage but rather … “Bubble and Squeak”.
To all you naysayers, read closely how the author describes this ‘old’ recipe… Soyer’s book originated specifically from working through the Irish potato famine.
Bubble and Squeak. That’s fantastic.
Has anyone ever heard of it referred to this way? Any idea of where the name would have come from?
