Diane’s Colcannon

Cabbage and bacon are folded into these mashed potatoes, complete with a well of melted butter!

When I saw this recipe for a spin on the classic Irish colcannon, I knew I had to put it on our St. Patrick’s Day menu.

I mean, come on… a WELL of melted butter?!

This recipe was pretty simple to make. I left the skins on the potatoes because it was easier and I enjoy the flavor/texture.

We had a ton of leftovers from this recipe, so we brought them to my in-laws’ house a few days later as a side dish for the meatloaf that my Father-in-law made with my toddler. It was a big hit!

I served the colcannon with Single-Skillet Bacon-Rosemary Chicken Thighs with Roasted Tomatoes (recipe coming soon!) and Irish Soda Bread for dessert. It was a delicious meal!
