Who needs a main dish? I could eat this all by itself! I used the cabbage and the leeks. I didn't do the optional step of liquifying the cooked cabbage. I like the slight crunch in the mashed potatoes. I added just a little bit more salt. This is a real keeper! Thanx for sharing it.

I'd picked this out for St. Paddy's Day then at the last minute changed the menu so only got around to making it now. What a waste to have waited so long - the taste is so much more flavorful and hearty than regular potatoes and the mace gave it just the right touch. Really enjoyed this, made as directed only change was to cut the amount in half for the two of us and still have plenty left to make some potatoe cakes today that I'm sure will be just as good.

Love this! I can't wait to make this again. We did not use all of the cabbage or onions, but still yummy!

A friend brought this to a pot luck party a couple months ago, and I ended up eating about half of it, despite not especially liking cabbage or leeks. I've been trying to find a recipe for a while to make my family try it, but I forgot what it was called... finally found one!

This was really yummy! Thanks for the recipe! I did use the suggestion to use nutmeg (mainly because I didn't have mace) and I added 3 cloves of grated garlic. Even my 13 year old daughter loved it! Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful! I used the kale instead of the cabbage, and the milk instead of the cream. Everyone in my family loved this.

Tried this for a last minute St.Pat's meal. Everyone thought it was great, even a picky eater friend. No one realized that it had cabbage in it. Tried to liquify the cabbage, but it didn't work to well. Next time won't bother.

I really liked the flavor combination of the cabbage and potatoes, but the recipe needed more flavor. Next time I'll add more pepper and mace and a little more salt. Thanks Luvinlif2k

A wonderful side dish. I made this as written (using cabbage and leeks) for Zaar World Tour. I did not liquefy it. In the picture, it is hiding under the Beef in Stout - Northern Ireland.
