1/3 Photos of Colcannon
This is my ultimate comfort food! Colcannon is a traditional Irish potato dish which normally contains potato and spring onions. This is my decadent and calorific version, perfect for a cold day, or if you are feeling under the weather. This serves about 6 as a side dish, but I have served larger portions with veg on the side too.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Fry the garlic, onion and bacon together until the onion is cooked, but not browned. Set to one side.
- 2Boil the cabbage in boiling salted water until tender. Drain and set to one side.
- 3Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain and mash to remove all lumps. Add butter to taste. Add the hot milk- the milk being hot makes the mash lovely and fluffy.
- 4Combine the mash, cabbage and onion/bacon mix in a large pot. Check for seasoning- it may not need much salt due to the bacon.
- 5Place the entire mixture into an oiled oven dish and top with some grated cheese.
- 6Pop in an oven which has been pre-heated to 180°C.
- 7Everything is cooked and hot, so just leave in the oven until the cheese is melted to your taste- for me about 10 minutes.
- 8Serve as a side, or eat the whole thing yourself!
