Colcannon Twice Baked Potatoes Recipe: A Tasty Twist on Traditional by Donna John
Colcannon is a traditional Irish recipe made with mashed potatoes and cabbage or kale. This is a fun twist on colcannon that is absolutely delicious. The whole meal, I would shut my eyes after each bite and say mmm. Honestly. This is my new favorite potato recipe.
Serve this twice-baked potato recipe with chicken, pork or beef. I served it with crispy chicken breasts and a garden salad drizzled with chive vinaigrette. You could also use smaller potatoes and serve this easy recipe as an appetizer.
Cuisine: Irish / American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes plus time to cook potatoes
Total Time: 30 minutes plus time to cook potatoes
- 2 large russet potatoes, baked (I cooked mine in the microwave)
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 2 cups finely shredded cabbage
- 4 tablespoons butter (divided)
- 2 ounces (1/4 cup) cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese)
- 1/4 cup half and half (you could use heavy cream or whole milk)
Here's how to make it:
- Cut the cooked, cooled potatoes in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out as much of the potato flesh as you can still leaving the skin intact. Put the potato flesh into a bowl and the skins into an oiled casserole dish.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a skillet. Add the onion and cabbage. Cook, stirring often, until softened and beginning to brown, about 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
- Add the remaining butter, cream cheese, shredded cheese and half and half to the potato flesh. Mix well.
- Add the cabbage and onions.
- Stir the ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.
- Spoon the mixture back into the potato skins. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 20 minutes. Garnish with fresh chives, if desired.
