I found this wonderful recipe on one of my favorite recipe pages...Texas Recipes on Facebook. This is so very yummy and would be great for a St. Pat's Day lunch or dinner.

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

2-2 1/2 lb
russet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
5-6 Tbsp
butter, unsalted with a bit more for serving
3 c
chopped kale, cabbage, chard, or other leafy green, lightly packed into measuring cup
3
green onions, including green tops, minced
1 c
milk or cream
salt to taste

How to Make Colcannon

Step-by-Step

  • 1Put the potatoes in a medium pot and cover with cold water by at least an inch. Add 2 tablespoons of salt, and bring to a boil. Boil until the potatoes are fork tender (15 to 20 minutes). Drain in a colander.
  • 2Return the pot to the stove and set over medium-high heat. Melt the butter in the pot and once it's hot, add the greens. Cook the greens for 3-4 minutes, or until they are wilted and have given off some of their water. Add the green onions and cook 1 minute more.
  • 3Pour in the milk or cream, mix well, and add the potatoes. Reduce the heat to medium. Use a fork or potato masher and mash the potatoes, mixing them up with the greens. Add salt to taste and serve hot, with a knob of butter in the center.

Wow... did summer fly by or what? In my mind, Memorial Day was last weekend. Summer's unofficially coming to an end, but I'm not going to let the weekend go...
