Traditional Scottish rumbledethumps cabbage cheddar cheese and potato recipe nicknamed the Scots version of bubble and squeak
This is delicious on its own or as a tattie accompaniment. It is nicknamed the Scots version of bubble and squeak. Traditional Scottish Rumbledethumps can be eaten on its own or with a meat dish. The name comes from the noise made in the kitchen as the tatties and cabbage are rumbled and thumped in the preparation. Sue Lawrence in her book Scots Cooking: The Best Traditional and Contemporary Scottish Recipes says that it is a Borders dish. Her Rumbledethumps recipe differs slightly from the one below in that she also uses turnip and chopped chives and prefers to use Savoy cabbage.

The North-East of Scotland skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out towards Aberdeen, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of Scottish horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

Salt and Pepper

2. Brown in the oven if required. (You can sprinkle with Scottish Cheddar Cheese for a lovely topping.)
Modern Rumbledethumps recipes from Scotland see the addition of 2 tablespoons of cream to give a much creamier mashed potato mix. Others suggest placing the potato, cabbage and spring onion mixture into an ovenproof dish after being boiled and mashed together. This dish is then topped with grated mature Scottish cheddar cheese and placed in a pre heated oven at 190C for 25 minutes.
