      I liked it a lot. I loved the texture of the cabbage and the taste of the onion in the potatoes.

      I LOVED LOVED LOVED it!! This was delicious and I made it just as the recipe stated. I did leave my cabbage in larger pieces because I really liked the texture. My husband, 9 year old, and 1 1/2 year old all devoured it. Which is saying something because I can never get them to agree on anything. I loved the tasted that the green onions gave the Colcannon without over powering it. Made this for Saint Patrick's Day and it was the perfect side dish. Heck I could have eaten just this!!

      This was delicious. A wonderful way to add some nutrition to mashed potatoes, because even though I added extra cabbage, you can barely detect it (in a good way). Thank you.
