      Love this stuff!! If you have never tried colcannon because it sounds like an odd combination, go ahead and try it. You will be very glad you did. This is a great Irish dish to have on St. Patrick's Day.

      I could eat mashed potatoes this way all the time! I love it! I didn't use quite as much salt as called for, and I sprinkled some caraway seeds on top. Tasty comfort food. I'll make this often. Thanx Tarlain!

      We LOVED these potatoes! I boiled the potatoes just till they were about done, drained most of the water and then added the cabbage and onion and basically let it all steam until tender, then mashed it all together. So, so good! We're looking forward to having these again very soon. Thanks for posting!
