If you love mashed potato then you must make this Colcannon Irish Mssh!

Colcannon is a traditional Irish dish that’s as hearty as it is delicious. Picture creamy mashed potatoes mixed with tender cooked cabbage or you could use kale, sometimes with the addition of spring onion or leeks for extra flavour. I also like to add bacon but that’s optional!

It’s a comforting dish that’s perfect for warming up on a cold day or as a side to accompany a main meal. Colcannon’s origins trace back centuries in Ireland, where it was commonly served at Halloween festivities. Beyond its delightful taste, colcannon also carries cultural significance, representing a connection to Ireland’s agricultural heritage and the use of simple, staple ingredients. Today, it remains a beloved dish enjoyed by many, both in Ireland and around the world, for its comforting flavours and cultural ties. A great dish for Saint Patrick’s day.
