Using leftovers in the kitchen is a great way of recycling ingredients and saving waste.  In winter, nothing beats a soup or curry to use up odds and ends, but in summer, think stir fry, frittata, home made pizzas or this lovely recipe for Bubble and Squeak from Mandy Sinclair.



3 eggs

2 tbsp oyster sauce

1 cup chopped ham

1 cup chopped cooked chicken 

3 chopped cooked potatoes

1 cup chopped cooked sweet potato

1 cup frozen pea and corn mix

2 tbsp vegetable oil

sweet chilli sauce, salad, to serve


Mix together eggs and oyster sauce. Add ham, chicken, potato, sweet potato and pea and corn mix. Season well and mix to combine.

Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium. Cook 1/3 cup of mixture, in batches, for 2-3 mins each side, until golden and firm. Serve with salad and sweet chilli sauce.


Use egg rings to cook batter to give perfect round patties.
