This is a classic Irish dish, I love mashed potatoes and cabbage, I don't know why I didn't think about mixing them, leave it up to the Irish to make something like this. There are a few colcannon recipes here on Zaar, but this one is a little different, I like the fact that the cabbage is sauteed in bacon grease before adding to the potatoes.
