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.

Super delicious and so smooth and creamy and love the addition of the cabbage and onion and to me the bacon is a must (Ichopped mine up and then cooked - find that is easier than crumbling). I scaled it back to 3 serves and used 1 1/4lb of Carisma potatoes (low GI potatoes) and the rest of the ingredients as per recipe for that quantity and still ended up with a serve left over (which the DM has claimed for breakfast and requested potatoe pancakes.
