​Crazy for Colcannon: How to Make This Traditional Irish Potato Recipe

Colcannon is a traditional Irish dish of mashed potatoes with kale or cabbage. Why not make it for your St. Patrick's Day dinner? 

You'll need:

  • 2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1 cup milk or cream
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups chopped cabbage or kale
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain.
  2. Add the milk or cream to the potatoes and mash. Set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in another pot. Add the cabbage or kale and green onions and cook, stirring, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the vegetables and the bacon, if using, to the mashed potatoes. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Serve with additional butter, if desired.
