This is an Irish dish I made last night. My Hubby loved it!

Easy to follow, this is a simple Colcannon recipe. This colcannon is made with creamy mashed potatoes with chunks of cabbage and bacon then it's topped with melted butter. Who knew little bits of bacon to this classic dish would have such an impact. Cooking the cabbage and onions in the bacon grease adds tons of flavor. This is a fantastic side dish for any time of the year but would be delicious on St. Patrick's Day with corned beef and cabbage or on Halloween.

Note: When sauteeing the onion and cabbage, we opted to use bacon grease. It really adds great flavor. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
