"Traditional Irish potato dish, very easy to make. Bear in mind that the UK and Ireland weren't exactly known for their cuisine, but for authenticity, this is what you want. For unauthentic but enhanced flavor, you can add bacon bits, or Cheddar cheese, or both."

  1. Place the potatoes, cabbage, and green onions into a large sauce pan, fill with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Drain the vegetables and place into a large bowl. Mash the potatoes and vegetables with the butter using a fork until the mixture is chunky, pouring in half-and-half gradually as you mash. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.

Made this recipe for a St. Patrick's Day party and the family loved it! The only change I made was adding one clove of garlic to the mash. :-) Good the next day too.

Kind of bland but then Colcannon is that way. It's meant as a neutral side to a meat entree. That said, I don't like cheese or bacon mixed into the dish.

I increased the milk/butter just a touch and I threw in a half pound of crumbled crisp bacon. Comfort food at it's best. I made Guinness Corned Beef to go with it. Excellent meal.

Good recipe, we save half the raw onions and add them after cooking the way my Nana did to give it a little more bite, and my kids like it with beef gravy on the side. My mum used to call this ...

Wow. Good colcannon! The half-half makes it ultra creamy! I made a few adjustments for my subsequent meals. Chicken broth and 1 TB of butter instead of cream and 1/4 cup butter. I am tryi...

Yum! The addition of cabbage to regular mashed potatoes made for an extra hearty, buttery flavor. I made some minor subs based on what I had on hand - shallots instead of green onions, and 1% mi...

I doubled this recipe and I still had to keep my family from eating the whole thing and not leaving any for the next day's lunch. This is the real stuff, very rich and tasty. I used a hand mixer...
