Colcannon Traditional Irish Dish
March 16, 2017
2 1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 slices bacon
1/2 small head cabbage, chopped
1 lg onion, chopped
1/ cup milk
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup butter, melted
Place potatoes in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender.
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium heat until evenly brown. Drain, reserving drippings, crumble and set aside. In the reserved drippings, sauté the cabbage and onion until soft and translucent. Putting a cover on the pan helps the vegetables cook faster.
Drain the potatoes, mash with milk and season with salt and pepper. Fold in the bacon, cabbage and onions, then transfer the mixture to a large serving bowl. Make a well in center and pour in the melted butter. Serve immediately.
