Step by Step Method

Step 1

Put 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.

Step 2

Return 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 cabbage for 3-4 minutes, or until wilted and have given off some of their water. Add the green onions and cook 1 minute more.

Step 3

Pour in the 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 and pepper to taste.

Step 4

Serve hot with a knob of butter in the center.

This was a lovely Colcannon. Rich, flavorful and creamy with lots of nice textures. The perfect comfort food served with meatloaf and asparagus. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe. Made for Best of 2014 Tag Game.
