Bubble and squeak needn’t be just for using up wintry leftovers. In fact, I’m much more likely to cook the green veg and potatoes from scratch at any time of the year. The dish is so good with grilled meats; it also makes a delicious breakfast, brunch or lightish lunch.

Peas and beans - broad, runner and bobby beans - are chopped up with leftover or freshly cooked new potatoes, along with some spring or summer greens, spring onions and green herbs, then pan-fried as patties.
