fat-free sour cream
1 large head
cabbage, finely shredded
green onions, diced
salt and ground black pepper to taste
I did a search using the word "Irish," looking for a side to go along with reuben sandwiches for St. Patty's Day. We were most pleased! I'm certain this will be an annual dish, and I may even cook it during the year, occasionally. After tasting, I chose to add onion powder, lemon pepper, celery salt, seasoning salt, and garlic salt. I also increased the # of garlic cloves, but that's just a personal preference. Thanks for a great addition to our holiday!
I love potatoes and cabbage but this did nothing for me.
I served this potato dish for St. Patrick's Day. Some people had corned beef and others had mushroom chicken. These potatoes were loved by all their perfect. My dad was kind of shocked to see the cabbage and potatoes together instead of separate but he said he preferred the potatoes and cabbage together now. It's a keeper.
Ok I didn't have any cabbage but had some leftover brussels sprouts I had roasted with lemon, garlic and dill. Boiled and mashed my red skin potatoes as usual with sour cream, butter and rice milk. Then I heated and mixed in my leftover brussels sprouts. Wow!! I can't stop eating it even though I'm full! I love Colcannon with regular cabbage and with brussels sprouts it's totally awesome. Then again anything mixed into mashed taters is pretty awesome! Give the sprouts a try, you won't be sorry!
So easy, So delicious
I served this for a 20 person luncheon with a brisket of beef.
Many guests wanted the recipe
This was really good, although I think it could stand to be a little creamier. Definitely season it generously with salt and pepper. I don't eat a lot of meat, so I actually had this for dinner tonight - it doesn't have to be just a side!
I made this for Thanksgiving as an alternative to traditional mashed potatoes. It was a huge hit! Thanks!
I usually use kale when I make colcannon...this is a very good recipe. Thanks for sharing it!
