Colcannon

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by HEP MEP

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 factors...so 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.
