Chef John's Colcannon Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

These were a huge hit at my St. Patrick's Day Pot Luck Party! Something different, fun and festive green! Kids love mashed potatoes and since the kale is put in the blender, there is nothing for the little one's to stick their nose up at. Just tell them it's food coloring! I did a triple batch to accommodate 12 people and it was just enough.

This was wicked good! We did it with Kale as called for and it was really delicious. Had it with pork chops in pork gravy and warm brown bread. It'll be on our Easter menu with Ham.

I tried this as it was healthier Colcannon recipe than I usually make. It also looked pretty with the green kale. However, despite sauteeing the kale and leeks I thought the kale was tough. I prefer Dianne's Colannon found on this site.I did make this recipe twice as I did a test run before St. Patrick's Day.

I gave this four stars because I changed a few things but the results were great. First, I did not blend the greens. Instead, I chopped the kale and leek to pretty small pieces before boiling. I drained the greens and squeezed out all the excess water using paper towels. I also sauteed the green onions plus two cloves of garlic in one tablespoon of butter. Then I just mashed everything up with the cream. I thought the results were great and everyone at my St. Patrick's day party liked it.

While many of us have enjoyed Chef John's recipes, I must admit that this recipe will not be repeated in my kitchen. Pureeing the kale, leek and scallions left me totally unimpressed with the overall texture and presentation of the dish. Two tbsps of butter at every step was absolute overkill of a good thing as was the scallion and butter topping. I followed the recipe as written - no tweeking. Reviews, of course, are influenced by one's personal taste, so remember that this is "just my humble opinion".
