"Colcannon the first time around (usually) doesn't have meat in it. Subsequent days after it was made, corned beef or bacon might be added to revive it from the fridge. This is another first night option of how to make it."

potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
finely chopped cabbage
leeks (white and pale green parts only), sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
salt and pepper to taste
This is yummy and creamy. I devised a healthier version: Use chicken broth and 1 TB of butter instead of the milk and 1/4 cup butter. If you don't have the carayway and anise, some dashes of nutmeg adds a nice touch. Potatoes actually are better after cooled in the fridge (the starch compounds change). And throwing diced ham, or other salty meat if you happen upon some make this a hit with the kiddos.
Comfort food at it's best! Love the taste of the seeds! I'll be making this again!
