Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Shape the bubble and squeak mixture into large balls, place in the hot oil, flatten down with a spatula to make pancake-like shapes. Cook until golden brown, turn, repeat for the other side. Serve immediately with minced chives.

This classic dish originally contained beef along with the left over cooked potatoes and cabbage. The name is apparently due to the sounds that are emitted during the cooking, the vegetables bubble as they are boiled then squeak in the frying pan.

In a shallow bowl, combine eggs, milk, and cinnamon. Carefully dip sandwiches into egg mixture, coating both sides.

In a large skillet or on a griddle, melt butter over medium heat. Cook sandwiches in hot butter about 2 minutes on each side or until golden.
