What is Colcannon?

Colcannon is a traditional Irish mashed potato recipe served with kale or cabbage. For kids who love potatoes but might not eat kale by the spoonful, this is a great way to get them to eat veggies. Cabbage is also a great addition and you wish you could even have both.

Next time you see kale at the grocery store, why not pick it up and try colcannon potatoes? Patrick’s Day or anytime you want to prepare a delicious side dish for your family, this recipe will be the perfect accompaniment to your Irish meals.

There are several ways to add scallions and kale to mashed potatoes. You can cook the shallots and kale in the same butter and milk you warmed for the potatoes, or you can place them in boiling water for about 1 minute. We like the butter and milk method so that all the nutrients stay in the mix, whereas if you blanch it in water some of the nutrients will be lost once you drain.

Fill the bowl with colcannon.

Potatoes are so versatile, we always have them in the house. You can add them to so many recipes, or let them shine on their own.
