  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 140g white cabbages, finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 300g whole new potatoes
  • 1 tbsp snipped chives
  • 2 medium eggs, at room temperature
  • 75g smoked salmon


  1. Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water until tender, then drain.

  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan or wok. Sweat the cabbage and the spring onions in the pan for a couple of mins. Meanwhile, chop and squash the potatoes roughly, then add to the pan along with the chives. Cook for 4-5 mins, flip it over (don’t worry if it breaks) and cook for a further 4-5 mins.

  3. Meanwhile, bring a small pan of water to a rolling boil, then reduce the heat so it is just simmering. Crack the eggs into the pan and simmer for about 3 mins until the whites are cooked and the yolk is just beginning to set. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

  4. To serve, divide the bubble & squeak between 2 plates, place the smoked salmon and poached eggs on top and grind over a little black pepper, to taste.
