Serves: 4
Prep time: 10 plus chilling
Cook time: 15
Ready in: Over 60 Minutes
Suitable for vegetarians
Syns per serving: FREE


  • low-calorie cooking spray
  • 1/2 leek, thinly sliced
  • 350g leftover boiled floury potatoes chopped into small chunks
  • 175g leftover cooked Brussels sprouts, shredded
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 4 eggs


  1. Spray a small non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a low heat. Add the leek, 1 tsp water, and some seasoning, then cover and cook for 3-4 minutes or until just soft.
  2. Put the boiled potatoes into a large bowl and crush them with the back of a fork. Mix in the sprouts and leek and season to taste.
  3. Shape the mixture into 4 cakes, each about 2.5cm thick, by pressing the mixture into an 8-9cm plain pastry cutter. Place them on a plate, cover, and chill for 1 hour.
  4. Half-fill a large deep frying pan with water and bring to a gentle simmer. The water is ready for the eggs when you can see just a few bubbles rising from the base. Add the vinegar and a good pinch of salt.
  5. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the bauble and squeak cakes and fry for about 5 minutes on each side or until crisp and golden.
  6. Meanwhile, break the eggs one at a time into a ramekin or teacup and slide them into the bubbling water. Leave them to poach for 3 minutes, then lift them out with a slotted spoon and drain briefly on kitchen paper.
  7. Put the cakes on to warmed plates and top with the eggs. Sprinkle the eggs with a little seasoning and serve hot with your favourite vegetables or salad.

Slimming Tip 2 – Fill up on Super Slimming Foods 
Now no food has the power to actually slim you down, but the foods with the least calories for the most amount of filling power will cut your calorie intake without you even realising.
These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.
