About the Dish:
Colcannon is a traditional Irish dish made with mashed potatoes and cabbage or kale. It is a comforting and hearty side dish that is often served with bacon or ham. The creamy mashed potatoes are mixed with sautéed cabbage or kale, resulting in a dish that is both flavorful and nutritious. Colcannon is a favorite during St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, but it can be enjoyed year-round.
|Cabbage or Kale||1 small head|

- Step 1: Peel and cut the potatoes into chunks. Boil the potatoes in a large pot of salted water until they are fork-tender, about 15-20 minutes.
- Step 2: While the potatoes are cooking, finely shred the cabbage or kale. In a separate pan, melt the butter over medium heat and add the cabbage or kale. Sauté until it is wilted and tender, about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Step 3: Drain the cooked potatoes and return them to the pot. Add the sautéed cabbage or kale, butter, and milk. Mash everything together until smooth and creamy. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed.
- Step 4: Serve the colcannon hot as a side dish with bacon or ham, if desired.
