Colcannon (Irish Potatoes and Cabbage)

Colcannon is a traditional Irish comfort food that I’ve been meaning to try for a long time. I’m so glad I finally did – it’s delicious!

Boil until tender (about 15 minutes):

8 Russet potatoes, peeled and cubed (about 2 1/2 lbs.)

While the potatoes are boiling, saute until tender:

1 chopped onion

6 c. shredded cabbage (I used the food processor for a very fine shred.)

Drain and mash the potatoes with the following:

1 c. sour cream

salt to taste (I used about 1 t.)

1 t. garlic powder

1/2 t. pepper

Stir the cabbage and onion mixture into the potatoes and serve with your favorite sides. Shown here with pork roast and gravy.
