DIvide the potato mixture into 8 portions and flatten each portion to form an even patty. Set aside.
Pour some oil to coat the bottom of a non-stick pan. Heat over medium high heat, and fry each Bubble and Squeak patty in the hot oil, until browned on both sides.
The bubble and squeak patties are soft (esp if you use an egg), and will be delicate. Use a wide spatula to help flip them over without breaking them.
Remove the browned bubble and squeak and place it on a wire rack in a warm oven to drain, and to keep it warm.
Serve these with bacon, breakfast sausages or smoked salmon for breakfast or brunch (these potato cakes can be used as a substitute for English muffins).
