Using up leftover cooked vegetables - Bubble and Squeak cakes

Bubble and Squeak cakes have become a Monday night tradition in The Mad House.  So much so that we have to prepare and cook extra vegetables on a Sunday.

Traditionally bubble and squeak is shallow fried leftover vegetables and the main ingredients are mash potato and cabbage.  However, we use any and all of the leftover vegetables   Mash does need to be there to make the vegetables stick together.  We even add any leftover roast parsnips.

So basically you mash together any leftovers.  You can fry them in a frying pan, but my boys love them shaped into patties which I shallow fry and then finish off in the oven.  This way you can freeze any remaining ones and cook directly from frozen.

Do you have a favorite way of using loeft over cooked vegtables?
