I have a recipe for Bubble and Squeak from 1865 and it calls for catsup, I am just not sure if it is calling for tomato or mushroom. Does anyone have any ideas?

I checked Mrs. Beeton's to compare, but her "Bubble and Squeak" recipe doesn't call for any sort of catsup/ketchup.  Nor does Hill's Breakfast Book, or Sanderson's The Complete Cook.  In all cases, they agree that beef + cabbage is the essence of the dish (typically with onion).  Cre-fydd's recipe includes mashed potatoes and greens. 

Closest I've found is Dodd's Housewife's Manual which mentions ragout of mushroom, oysters, or onion as a nice addition to Bubble-and-Squeak.  On the basis of that, I'd say to try mushroom catsup.

The other possibility is walnut catsup.  Having not read the reciept, Maybe its which ever catsup you have on hand.

Just a thought.
