Cooking with Diane: Irish Colcannon Potatoes
I love trying new recipes and discovering new tastes. These potatoes are so good they will become a regular at our dinners. Hope you try them!
Irish Colcannon Potatoes
2 pound of red baby potatoes
6 tablespoon butter
3 garlic cloves (diced)
½ medium green cabbage (chopped)
4 slices bacon (fried crisp)
2 green onions (chopped)
¾ cup warm milk
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
Boil potatoes in a large pot, leaving skins on until soft.
In a skillet cook bacon until crisp, remove bacon set aside.
Add 3 tablespoons butter to bacon drippings, add chopped cabbage saute until soft, add garlic and cook about 2 minutes more. Add to the potatoes in pot the cabbage, garlic, milk, remaining butter, onion powder, salt and pepper. Leaving skin on potatoes mash all ingredients with a potato masher as potatoes should be chunky not smooth. Add salt an pepper to your taste.
Put into serving dish garnish with crumbled bacon and green onions.
