    There's not an Irish bone in my body, but I love colcannon. I'm, also, not a kale kind of gal so I prefer colcannon with cabbage. Your kids will surprisingly love this.

      Eats like the richest of mashed potatoes, but includes lots of vegetables and, of course, bacon. This was a giant project (along with Brown Sugar and Mustard Glazed Corned Beef) and it produced a delicious plate of comfort food with a definite Scots-Irish accent. We all loved it! Made for ZWT8.

      Yep! This is a winner. I loveddddddd the cabbage sauteed in the bacon fat. That, combined with mashed potatoes and bacon. Heaven on a plate. I didn't put much of the cabbage into the mashed potatoes because my kids dislike that particular ingredient (they don't know that they're missing!). So I had leftover braised cabbage for the next day. Yum! Made for ZWT8 Great Britain

      What a great combination of the two things I love - cabbage and mashed potatoes! This is a great comfort food and I now realize why it is such a popular dish! DH loved it; although, I had to fight him off the bacon before I could crumble it up. Will definitely make this dish again! Made for ZWT-8-Great Britain/Ireland.
