  1. In a large saucepan, boil cabbage until tender; remove and chop or blend well. Set aside and keep warm. Boil potatoes until tender. Remove from heat and drain.
  2. Chop leeks, green parts as well as white, and simmer them in just enough milk to cover, until they are soft.
  3. Season and mash potatoes well. Stir in cooked leeks and milk. Blend in the kale or cabbage and heat until the whole is a pale green fluff. Make a well in the center and pour in the melted butter. Mix well.

I prefer to shred and saute the cabbage. I use green onions instead of leeks. We often have this for St Patrick's Day. For New Year's day we have this with ham steaks as ham and cabbage are s...

Terrific stuff. Prefer to steam potatoes instead of boiling. Just eyeballed ingredients but probably used only 1/4 cup butter. Garnished with a bit of crumbled bacon and fresh chives. Next ...

Excellent Colcannon recipe! The best I have found. Highly reccommended.

I used salt pork to simmer the cabbage, and fried up some bacon, may not be the healthiest...but TOTAL comfort food!!!!

I prefer to saute the cabbage in butter to boiling it.
