plan of action

review recipes to be cooked

prepare and cook the potatoes and cabbage

make the flapjacks – bake in the oven

prepare and cook the cauliflower

make the bubble and squeak

make the cheese sauce – serve with the cauliflower

ensure that you collect your equipment before you start to cook

weigh and measure your ingredients accurately

keep your work surfaces clean and tidy – wash up as you go



  • healthier eating
  • the bubble and squeak rounds could be oven baked instead of fried, spray them with a little oil to help them crisp-up
  • use skimmed milk and reduced fat cheese in the cheese sauce for the cauliflower cheese
  • try using a little less sugar (or a substitute) and a little more dried fruit in the flapjacks



cut the cauliflower yourself, rather than buying it pre-prepared

use left-over mash, cabbage, brussels and other vegetables for great bubble and squeak

freeze extra portions of cauliflower cheese and bubble and squeak for another meal

buy a large sack of potatoes, and store in a dark cool cupboard

buy economy or own-brand oats



food safety and hygiene

always check date marks, e.g. use-by on the cheese

wash fresh fruit and vegetables before use

keep pan handles away for the edge of the hob

be specially careful when frying

use oven gloves

check that any left-overs for the bubble and squeak are only 1-day old



cooking for the future

  • cauliflower cheese
  • make up the sauce and pour over fish, pasta or other vegetables
  • exchange the cauliflower for a range of cooked vegetables for a terrific veggie bake
  • stir the sauce into cooked pasta, canned tuna, sweetcorn and spring onion for a quick ‘tuna pasta bake’


cooking for the future

  • bubble and squeak
  • use left over potatoes and cabbage/brussels
  • omit stages 5 and 6 and cook in a frying pan
  • add fresh herbs, chopped onion or cooked leeks for a special treat
  • fruity flapjacks
  • vary the type of dried fruit, e.g. sultanas, figs, mixed fruit
  • add 1x5ml spoon cinnamon or mixed spice to the oat mixture
