This is from today's Serious Eats Newsletter. I am in LOVE. I want to eat this 3 meals a day for the next week. Really.

Can you believe this kind of lusciousness greets me in my Inbox? I am one lucky girl...
Bubble and Squeak
- serves 4 -
Adapted from April Bloomfield of The Spotted Pig.
1 pound green or Savoy cabbage, thinly sliced/shredded
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
6 tablespoons butter
1 to 1 1/2 pounds leftover mashed potatoes, or 1 pound potatoes, boiled and mashed
Salt and pepper, to taste
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. In large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat and add the onions with a good pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, until soft, then add the cabbage. Cook for an additional 15 minutes until the cabbage is tender.
2. In a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes with the cabbage mixture, stirring thoroughly to combine. Adjust the seasoning, then mold into 4 patties.
3. Heat the remaining butter in the same skillet and fry the patties until brown. Transfer to an oven-proof dish and heat through in the oven as the patties come off the skillet. Multiple skillets can be used to expedite things.
4. When all the patties are in the oven, fry 4 eggs in butter. Serve with freshly cracked black pepper.

Bubble and Squeak is the best food. Ever.

You can use any leftover veg with mashed potatoes and it's a great way to use leftovers.

Not FAIR, Not FAIR! I just this very evening decided I was cutting back on my eating and then you post this. You will be the reason I can't fit into my jeans. I blame YOU. Ok not really, it's all my fault I have no will power.
