Irish colcannon is a traditional dish of Ireland made with mashed potatoes, cabbage or kale with milk, butter, salt and pepper. If you like cabbage and potatoes, you will love this Irish colcannon. Make it for St. Patrick’s Day to celebrate. Colcannon goes well with ham and would even be good for Easter or just anytime you want something a little different to serve your family and guests.

Combine cubed potatoes, chopped cabbage and green onions in a large pot on top of the stove. Cover with water, bring to a low boil and cook 15 to 20 minutes until potatoes are done.
Remove from stove and drain. Add the butter, salt, pepper and milk. Mash until like mashed potatoes. I just use a hand potato masher. Spoon into a casserole dish and serve. Can sprinkle on some green onion tops.
