COUNTY MAYO COLCANNON

By Chris T. chrisb64


A wonderful recipe that we love so much that we make it throughout the year not just as a treat on St. Patrick's day. This is great with corned beef of course but is very good with roast pork or chicken or with a nice irish stew over it.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large saucepan, boil cabbage(or kale) until tender; remove and chop or blend well. Set aside and keep warm.**I prefer to chop my cabbage FIRST(before boiling or sauteing) AND I prefer to saute the cabbage in butter or bacon grease instead of boiling**
2
Boil peeled and cut up potatoes until tender. Remove from heat and drain.
3
Chop leeks, green parts and white parts as well, and simmer them in just enough half and half(or milk) to cover, until they are soft.
4
Season and mash potatoes well. Stir in cooked leeks and half and half(or milk). Blend in the kale or cabbage and heat until thoroughly heated. Make a well in the center and pour in the melted butter. Mix well and serve.
