Bubbles & Squeaks Hummus Burger

Bubbles & Squeaks is a traditional English dish similar to a hash made with leftovers in a hot skillet. We love to make it after Thanksgiving by heating up our large griddle and frying leftover piles of green beans, pieces of squash and sweet potato and spoonfuls of mashed potatoes into warm, crispy little patties. This was such a tasty way to eat leftovers I decided to try it with some of the other staples we have in the fridge. Since we already eat a lot of my homemade hummus and the consistency is similar to mashed potatoes, preparing it Bubbles & Squeaks style was a delicious idea. It’s great when I’m short on time and we are both staring into the fridge 5 minutes past supper time.

Love hummus and loved this idea of pan-frying hummus. Very tasty and super easy. My “plops” did not keep to a patty, so instead I filled the pan and moved the hummus around to crisp, similar to making scrambled eggs. Served on buns with fresh spinach and tomato and a drizzle of olive oil – yummy! I will definitely make again. Thanks Jen!
