Colcannon is often just mashed potatoes with kale but this version is beefed up with bacon and onion. Delicious, especially in the winter months.
Made it healthier. I loved the look of the recipe but needed to use up some vegetables I had in the fridge. used all of the ingredients listed and to the cabbage I added 1 large grated carrot and 2 tsp crushed garlic. I used bacon, but I took all of the fat off and just used a splash of olive oil to cook the cabbage and onion and carrot. To the potato, I added some cauliflower and steamed it with the potato and mashed it together. - 04 Aug 2009
Oh wow - so delicious! I have never had colcannon before but needed to use up some potatoes, so decided to give this a go. I used red cabbage and red onion because that's all I had, but it works beautifully! - 04 Oct 2011
The whole family loved this recipe, from the 3yr old to the 14yr old, even Hubby. A great winter dish. - 04 Aug 2009
