The kids will love their vegetables in these tasty patties served with a side of melted cheese toast.
3 medium washed potatoes, peeled and chopped
150g sweet potato, peeled and chopped
1 small carrot, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup frozen peas
1 tablespoon dried breadcrumbs
salt and cracked black pepper
4 slices wholemeal bread
low-fat cheese, grated
Place the potatoes, sweet potato, carrots and peas in a steamer and steam until tender. Remove and place in a large heatproof bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes then mash roughly. Stir through breadcrumbs.
When cool enough to touch, take 1/3 cup of the mixture and shape into rough rounds. Heat a little oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook each cake for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
As the bubble and squeak cakes are cooking, top the bread with grated cheese and toast in an oven grill until melted and golden. Serve with a couple of the bubble and squeak cakes.
Try cutting the bread into fun shapes using a pastry cutter before toasting. Try other vegetables like pumpkin, zucchini or broccoli flowerets
