Irish Eggs Benedict Bubble and Squeak Recipe
Irish Eggs Benedict Bubble and Squeak have a funny name but this potato pancake is filled with cabbage and bacon then topped with a poached egg, hollandaise sauce, and peas.
Good to Know
The dish is called bubble and squeak because the cabbage makes bubbling and squeaking sounds during the cooking process.

Bubble and Squeak
- In a cast iron skillet, brown the bacon and pour off grease except a spoonful or two. Remove the bacon and save.
- Add the cabbage and water, cover, and cook on low for 15-20 minutes (or until the cabbage begins to be tender).
- Add the boiled potatoes and bacon and cook a little longer, allowing flavors to blend.
- Salt to taste, and add extra water if you need to cook it longer.
- Crack each egg into a ramekin or bowl.
- Bring a pan of unsalted water at least 2-3 in deep with 1 t vinegar to a simmer over medium heat.
- Create a little vortex in the water and slip 1 egg into the pan. The yolk should follow the white.
- Cook for 2 minutes then turn off the heat and leave the pan for 8-10 minutes.
- Lift the egg out with a slotted spoon and drain it on kitchen paper and keep warm.
- Repeat for remaining eggs
Gordon Ramsey Basic Hollandaise
- Boil vinegar, peppercorns, and tarragon, together and reduce by half. Strain and reserve.
- Boil a large pan of water, then reduce to a simmer.
- Using a large balloon whisk, beat together the yolks and 2 tsp of the reduced wine vinegar in a heatproof bowl that fits snugly over the pan.
- Beat vigorously until the mixture forms a foam, make sure the yolks don't get too hot. You may need to remove the bowl from the heat from time to time while you whisk, scraping around the sides with a plastic spatula. You want a golden, airy foam.
- remove from heat and whisk in warmed butter, a little at a time, then return the bowl over gentle heat to cook a little more. Repeat until all the butter is incorporated and you have a thick texture like mayonnaise.
- Finally, whisk in lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste plus a little warm water from the pan if the mixture is too thick.
- Use a biscuit cutter to cut a circle of Bubble and Squeak and place on a plate.
- Top with a poached egg.
- Sprinkle peas around the potato cake.
- Top with Hollandaise sauce.
- Serve immediately.
