"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!!"

"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!"

"The chef who cooks at the steakhouse in our town likes cabbage so last St. Patrick's Day I made this Colcannon. He prides himself on his cooking being the best but he ate and ate and told his friend that he could founder himself on that dish. Coming from him, that is very high praise! It is so easy to make and goes well with any kind of meat. Great dish!"
