Colcannon, a couple of years ago, I didn’t know what this was. I like to think of Colcannon as Irish Mashed Potatoes. Colcannon is mashed potatoes with cooked cabbage inside of them. Thanks to a close friend of mine, and her insistence that I should try these, I did. You know what? They are delicious. This is an Irish comfort food, and thankfully potatoes and cabbages are available all year long. Colcannon makes a lovely spring vegetable, as the green of the cabbage peaks through the mashed potatoes. Some people like to add a little bit of bacon or even bacon drippings to these for an additional flavor. I personally am a purist on these, and I like them with just the potatoes and cabbage. However you enjoy your colcannon one thing is for certain, you will be making these potatoes again and again.
