Sally’s Colcannon


2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 head cabbage, chopped

1 bunch green onions, chopped

¼ cup butter, softened

½ cup cream

salt and pepper



Place the potatoes, cabbage, and green onions into a large sauce pan, fill with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.

Drain the vegetables and place into a large bowl. Mash the potatoes and vegetables with the butter using a fork until the mixture is chunky, pouring in half-and-half gradually as you mash. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.


Modern Day Upgrade:  Add in some bacon bits or cheddar cheese, or both.
