"This is a great side dish for corned beef on St. Patrick's Day. It is very smooth and rich! The recipe came from my mother-in-law, who is first-generation Irish." — katt

Very tasty! I used red potatoes and left the skins on instead of peeling them. I did need to cook the cabbage and onions longer than stated to soften them. I added a bit more salt and pepper, as well. This was a very satisfying side dish for our St. Patrick's Day dinner.
Made tonight to go with corned beef. Very good. i did not have cream cheese so used a mix of sour cream and plain yogurt...healthier and still delicious. You do need to add a healthy amount of salt for flavor but turned out great.
These were so good. Only thing is I blended 1/2 of the cabbage/onion mixture so my husband and 3 year old would not get scared from the cabbage.
A real crowd pleaser! Don't tell them it has cabbage in it, and they'll never know. I used leeks instead of onions and like the extra color for St. Patrick's Day. I will be serving this instead of mashed potatoes from now on since it is much healthier.
It was good. I too didn't have cream cheese so I used a generous amount of sour cream and that worked out well.
