I seem to have an awful lot of left overs. So I thought I'd make B&S for the first time tchshock Do you suggest I bake or fry ?
Would you put left over stuffing in ?

Fry, we like our stuffing cold like the meat stuffs.

I just fry all the left over veg chopped up and serve with cold meat, fish etc and loads of prickly stuff and coleslaw, if there is any, or salad.

If I didn't feel so I'll I'd be drooling now!

I saw a Christmas pot luck pie on TV the other day.
All sorts of leftovers went into the deep dish, lashings of gravy, and then the topping. Missed the end of it so don't know if it was a potato topping or a pastry topping - Either could work.
I shall bear it in mind. Today is my hosting day and tomorrow will be leftovers day smile

Bubble & squeak topped with crispy duck and a fried egg, yummy.

I've just cooked potatoes to mash then will add to chopped vegs and fry later (got to have crispy brown bits) we'll have it with cold turkey and gammon with pickles or sauces. Have to get a bit hungrier yet, been raiding the chocolates and mince pies grin

Make some mash and bung in everything that is left over, bake in the oven with lots of butter on top. We only fry it the next day if there is some left.

Yum, tonight having bubble and squeak, with parsnips carrots potatoes sprouts and a little cauli cheese, and some chopped stuffing balls. All fried up, hardly any oil used. I'm veggie so just some pickles and may be an egg. Delish.

coolgran we have just eaten "st Stephens" pie as it is known in our house, ALL of the leftovers, gravy that has been cooled and a scrunched filo top brushed with melted butter, covered with foil and baked at 170 for for 45 mins then a further 5 without the foil. It is yum and so easy, we much prefer it to yesterdays dinner.roastchicken P.S add little dots of cranberry sauce before putting on the pastry

The trouble with all these delicious-sounding recipes for B&S is that most of my family members would be poking around trying to remove the bits they don't like! grin

Would that be the bubble or the squeak Ana?

Lona Mon 26-Dec-16 21:54:50

Coolgran I saw that too, and it was topped with scrunched up filo pastry sheets like grannypiper describes ^ ^ It did look tasty.
