    HEP MEP's Note:

    Got this out of a Jane Brody cookbook. I guess I like it because it has cheese! And I definitely use more than the recipe calls for. I wasn't sure about the prep time - think that would depend on various I upped it a little.

      I made this for St. Patrick's day. It was very good & I will be making it again, however I think I will add a bit more seasoning as it was just a bit bland for my taste. A little more salt & pepper & it should be good to go. I also liked the suggestion of sour cream.

      I loe colcannon and love this recipe with the cheese added. The cheese (I used sharp cheddar) gives this a nice golden color and slightly cheesey flavor. To make this a bit quicker, I peeled and cut up my potatoes prior to boiling them. I'll make this again. Thanx, MEP. We miss you.

      Very good and very comforting - I'd definitely make this again. I know it wouldn't necessarily be tradidional, but the addition of green onion would work here.
