"I remember watching a cooking show and hearing of this awesome Irish meal, and so I changed it to fit my own needs and likes/dislikes. I love it and my boyfriend gets very excited when we get to make this dish! It's not only easy, but it's great as a leftover too! Garlic-flavored chicken broth works very well in this recipe." — Jewelsie

russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
mayonnaise, or more if needed
1 (14.5 ounce) can
chicken broth, or as needed
salt and black pepper to taste
cubed fully cooked ham
This was very yummy! I halved the recipe since it was just for me and my husband, sauteed a small minced onion with the cabbage, and tossed in two crushed chicken bouillon cubes while the cabbage cooked down. It added great flavor. After I tossed everything together, I mixed in a beaten egg, put it all in a casserole pan, and baked it for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees, putting cheese all over the top for the last 10 minutes. Yum! Can't wait to make it again. Oh yeah, I used light mayo instead of regular, and boiled the potatoes with 3 crushed garlic cloves which I forgot to take our when I whipped up the taters. They came out delicous!
This was fast, easy & very good! I wanted a traditional Irish meal for St. Patrick's Day & I found it with this!
I used a slightly different approach to this recipe using all the same ingredients. I had a good sized bowl of leftover mashed potatoes and a wedge of cabbage leftover from making coleslaw. I added a half of an diced onion with 1 Tablespoon of butter to a skillet & sauteed the onion for a couple of minutes - added the cubed ham and the cabbage with 1/4 cup of water. Covered and let the cabbage steam. Meanwhile I heated the mashed potatoes in the microwave - stirred them and added a Tablespoon of mayonnaise. When the cabbage was almost done - take the lid off and let the juices reduce. Stir in the potatoes. Done - all in less than 15 minutes. One skillet to clean up and a filling meal to boot. Thanks! This is comfort food.
I made the version suggested by Sarah. It came together easily as a casserole, quicker since I left the potatos whole and unpeeled. It had a lot of flavor. Next time I might try making impressions with the back of a spoon, and placing several sunny side up eggs to bake on top before adding the cheese.
What a unique recipe! I will be making this again!
