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
