"I make this every St. Patrick's Day. My family loves it and I don't know why I don't make it more often. Don't forget to hide a dollar coin or two for the lucky children who find them."

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Season the potatoes with salt, and mash with 6 tablespoons of butter, sour cream, egg, and milk.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart casserole.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon butter in a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the cabbage, leeks, and onion until the cabbage is tender and the onion is translucent, about 10 minutes. Crush 2 bouillon cubes into the cabbage mixture, and stir to blend and dissolve the cubes. Stir the cabbage mixture into the potato mixture until thoroughly mixed, and spoon into the prepared casserole.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes; top with Cheddar cheese, and return to oven until the cheese melts, about 10 minutes.

Perhaps you meant 3 pounds versus 3 potatoes? This was delicious...I added 10 oz of chopped ham to make it a one course meal. Would make again...

I was a little confused about the recipe calling for 3 potatoes. Maybe it turned out so dry because I used a couple more. 3 wouldn't have fed 8 people. At the end of the day, except for the ol' ...

VERY GOOD! I did add a little extra salt and pepper, but that was my own preference. I would definately make this more often than just on St. Patrick's Day, and I intend to! Also, I did assemble...

Great recipe! I used 2 bags of shredded hashbrowns instead of mashed potatoes. Chopped medium head of cabbage with 4 leeks, sauteed in olive oil with salt till tender. Combined with uncooked ...

Thank you so much for posting a recipe that actually sounds like Colcannon. I have always prepared or purchased in an Irish pub Colcannon that is made with Irish bacon, two kinds of cabbage and ...

Turned out very good, with a nice flavor. I used 5 large potatoes (Costco size), and also put 5 crushed garlic cloves in with the potatoes. Next time I think I will add some bacon.

Yummy! Made this last night to go with the corned beef for our "early" St. Patrick's day supper. Used kale instead of cabbage (my preference), used 10 very small white rose potatoes (all I had...

I doubled this and took it to a St Patty's Day Potluck, and it was a huge hit! 4 people asked for the recipe. I left out the leeks, but other than that followed it exactly. I made it up the ni...
