Scottish Recipes

Rumbledethumps is a traditional dish from the Scottish Borders.

How can you not like a dish with a name like that?

Rumbledethumps is a quick and easy recipe often compared to “bubble and squeak”.

Supposedly the name of the dish comes from the sound of the wooden spoon thumping on the pan when mixing the potatoes and cabbage.

Serves 4

  • Cooked and mashed potato
  • Cooked and thinly sliced cabbage
  • 50g Butter
  • 125g Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 200°C

Cook equal amounts of potato and cabbage.

Combine potatoes and finely chopped cabbage  mix with a wooden spoon to get the thumping sound that names the dish, in a large saucepan in which the butter has been melted while all the ingredients are still hot, and season well.

Transfer everything into a roasting tin.

Scatter over the cheese and bake until the cheese melts and colours.
