    This is a variation of a much loved Scottish border dish. It is delicious! We love it. It can be prepared in advance and popped into the oven at your convenience. Goes Great with Roast Beef!!

      This is yummy! And the leftovers will translate into a great hash for breakfast! I made it more or less as directed (I always eyeball measurements) and decidedly I would add garlic in the future (as we are conditioned to eat garlic in everything in this household). Also, as a tip, do not underestimate the importance of the drying of the boiled veggies... I think I rushed through this step and ours turned out a little soggy. Despite that, I was delighted with this as a side with some Sriracha for kick.

      I know I am late in posting this review, as the first time I made this was two Christmas's ago. EXCELENT, did not change a thing. It has become a faithful side in a few homes I know of. Thanx for posting.

      A better version of irish colcannon. It was my first time cooking turnips and savoy cabbage and we loved the taste. Will make it again, but lighter version, using olive oil spread instead of butter and reduced fat cheese so I feel less guilty eating it.
