Cheap Irish Colcannon Recipe
This is a college try on a traditional favorite. Sometimes you're too poor to get all the ingredients for colcannon. It's a good quick filler for lunches in college.
Authentic colcannon is easy when you boil the potatoes and cabbage all in one pot, then simply drain and mash with butter and cream.
I love the combination of potatoes, cabbage, onion, and bacon all through the cooler months of fall and winter. I attend an annual St. Paddy's Day party and this is the dish I'm always asked to bring...and I'm happy to say that the bowl comes home empty every time!
Whip up a bowl with one of our eight colcannon recipes and you're sure to have the luck of the Irish with you.
This beef stew, richly flavored with dark beer, slowly cooks down until tender with carrots and onions. It's served on buttery cabbage mashed potatoes.
This is a very good recipe, although I did change the instant masted potatoes to "real" red skinned mashed potatoes. I've made colcannon using carrots and cabbage, but REALLY liked the taste of the broccoli and cabbage in this one. I served this with "Feta-Stuffed Hamburgers" from this site. Thanks WM Chef for sharing your version of Colcannon
Looks similar to colcannon, but champ is native to the North of Ireland. It's made by blending scallions or green onions with creamy mashed potatoes. Great on its own, served steaming hot with extra butter which will melt through it. But it's also the perfect side dish for good quality sausages.
The wonderful flavors of kale and leeks spice up your average buttery mashed potatoes for a St. Patrick's Day classic.
Here's a great way to use up leftover corned beef from St. Patrick's day or to stretch a little corned beef to feed a crowd. Mashed red potatoes, shredded cabbage, and plenty of butter make it taste oh-so-good.
This is a recipe from County Mayo. It is traditional Halloween fare but good anytime! Kale can be substituted for cabbage.
