Directions

  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...

Made it without eggs so substituted flour to bind. Hd it with salmon. Worked well as a side dish. It's not a star dish that you buld a meal around in my mind but a good dish for complementing meat dishes. Would make a great dish to take to a potluck dinner or to sneal greens into kids :).

Made this for St. Paddys and everyone loved it. So filling and rich, but so, so delicious! I must confess, however, that I did start by frying up about a half pound of bacon, and then sauted the cabbage, leeks and onions in the bacon grease, and added the bacon back in the dish before baking. Boy, that was decadent and fattening, but divine! The whole family loved this and have been asking me to make it again.

My potatoes were kind of small (organic reds) so I used a few more. I didn't have bouillion cubes but I did have chicken Better than bouillion so I used a couple teaspoons of that. Because I always make colcannon with bacon, I did add a half pound of cooked, crumbled turkey bacon. This was super yummy--we all enjoyed it quite a bit. A new unique way to eat colcannon!

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 this the night before and just baked it off the next day...it worked out perfectly! Thanks for sharing. :)

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 hash browns and other ingredients (except bouillon because I had none ) added some garlic powder and paprika. I put cheese inside the mixture, added some extra on top at the end of baking. Went well with pork chops.

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 BAKED. That's the only way I have ever had it. I don't know what to call the other socalled Colcannon recipes I saw on this website.

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.
