Bubble and Squeak

It's just around St. Patrick's day, and cabbage consumption is on the rise. Seeing it around the grocery store made me think of Bubble and Squeak - a cabbage potato recipe with a fantastic name. Actually the name is motivated by the sound the dish makes as it cooks.

It's perfect for the end of Winter. My mom made it for my brother and me all the time as a quick meal. So I made it again tonight. It's surprisingly tasty, for such a simple recipe.
Bubble and Squeak!
+ Potatoes, a few medium ones
+ Cabbage, a large head, or two small ones, chopped up
+ Salt
+ Olive Oil
Boil cabbage and potatoes for twenty minutes. Drain, and throw it all on a hot pan with olive oil. Sprinkle a decent amount of salt and let it brown a little, stirring occasionally. You can choose to add sausage or other meat of some sort, but it's pretty good by itself! Pairs well with cold weather and potato famines.
