    Jan H.'s Note:

    This colcannon recipe came from a Prince Edward Island, Canada, cookbook, if I remember correctly. I do not know the title to it or if it is still in print. There are many different recipes for colcannon, but this one is my favorite, the only one I make now.

      Made this recipe for dinner yesterday. it was great! My children loved it. I tweeked it a bit by adding a package of bacon (cooked and chopped) a la a recipe seen on the Food Network...a good addition and made it more of a meal than a side-dish! Thanks for the recipe! Will make it again, the children are insisting.

      You can put a big pile of mashed potatoes on your plate, and feel less guilty because it is partly vegetables. Creamy plus crunchy, how can you resist. OK, I did use more salt and pepper than the recipe suggested.

      Great recipe. I actually prefer regular onion to scallions so I was glad to see that's what was being used in this recipe. Thank you.
