Not your regular mashed potatoes. These are traditional Irish spuds!

We really enjoyed these potatoes, served them with ham for Easter. I'm always trying to find recipes that incorporate more veggies & this fit the bill. DH requested that these be made on a regular basis. I was able to cook the potatoes ahead of time & just quickly reheated them in the microwave before adding them to the kale mixture.
