Rumbledethumps is a traditional dish from the Scottish Borders. The main ingredients are potato, cabbage and onion. Similar to Irish colcannon, and English bubble and squeak, it is either served as an accompaniment to a main dish or as a main dish itself.

This version comes from our friends at Sarpo and is very simple and easy to adapt. According to them you can never make enough! Cooked leftovers from a roast meal can be used and cheese placed on top if desired. Sarpo Axona was used in this quick easy dish.  Meals are so satisfying when you have grown the ingredients!

Mashed potatoes – lots of cream and butter to help it stick
Cooked Cabbage, Sprouts, broccoli, or any green.

Fry a chopped onion, mix with mash and cooked brassica and fry at medium heat until brown then flip with aid of plate. Quantities don’t matter much. More mash than cabbage. Sprouts, broccoli, cabbage or any green.
