My Irish Grandmother cooked bacon and fried the cabbage and onion in the bacon fat. Then mixed it in the mashed potatoes. So very delicious. I still make this today. So quick and easy!
I used whole milk and regular butter. We loved it!
I love colcannon! I must admit that I did not try this as written. Reading the recipe and some of the reviews, I worried that it would be too "soupy", so I instead of boiling the cabbage, I sauteed it in a large skillet with a bit of olive oil and butter. I also seasoned the cabbage with Montreal seasoning as it cooked. The cabbage cooks way down, so don't worry that it will be too much. After mashing the potatoes with 3/4 cup of whole milk (instead of 1 cup fat-free milk), salt and pepper, I stirred in the cooked cabbage. Yummy!
Made this for St. Patrick's day meal and the family absolutely loved it. Combining the potatoes and cabbage is so much better than preparing them individually. It's a keeper!!
I made this recipe last St. Patrick's Day and will have it on the menu again this year! It was very tasty. I used regular butter and whole milk. A definite St. Patty's Day keeper!
This is so good! I use the leftovers from my traditional St. Pattie's day dinner and add some corned beef cut into bite sized pieces to this Colconnon recipe. Wonderful meal even if I say so myself! LOL!
Easy to make & very good. Going to add just a little less pepper next time.
Very good recipe. Great way to use up cabbage. Creamy and chunky. Will be making again.
I would definitely make this again! It was delicious! Super easy!
I would peel the potatoes next time and maybe add a little less butter. Everything else is excellent!
