The dish known as colcannon has been around for centuries and its origins are thought to be in Ireland. The traditional recipe for colcannon calls for potatoes, cabbage, butter, and milk, and it was originally a peasant dish meant to be a filling and hearty meal. Over time, the dish has evolved and there are now many different variations of colcannon recipes. Some recipes call for the addition of onions, leeks, ham, or cheese, while others are made with sweet potatoes or kale. No matter what ingredients are used, colcannon remains a delicious and comforting dish.
When making colcannon, be sure to use a high quality butter and potatoes. Boil the potatoes until they are tender, and make sure to mash them until they are smooth. If you want to add extra flavor, try adding some garlic or herbs. When incorporating the cabbage, be sure to sauté it until it is soft and tender before adding it to the mashed potatoes. Finally, top the dish with a generous amount of butter and some chopped parsley for a delicious and savory dish.
