    Love the recipe, however the kale and sour-cream are not traditional (If that is what you are looking for). However, they are great tweaks for a great flavor!

    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.

    A great addition to my St. Patty's Day meal!

    These tasted pretty good, but were very dry, so we added more milk to taste. My husband also picked up Napa Cabbage instead of Kale, so the taste was a little more bland than I expected. Next time I think we will try a different Colcannon recipe, one that uses leeks instead of onion, and may add either goat's milk or goat cheese, which we find adds a really pleasant tang to mashed potato dishes, believe it or not!

    I made this recipe for a St. Patty's Day Party I had with my cooking group. These were tasty and we all really enjoyed them! I kept them in the crock pot to keep them hot, and they worked well, but with the cover on they got a little mushy from the moisture that built up. They were still great though! Kale is so good for you, and with this addition you feel like your eating healthy and enjoying this traditional Irish dish at the same time. Will be making this annually for my parties from now on! Thanks for sharing with us Princess!
