Being part Irish, my family always had a pot of ham, cabbage and potatoes, or corned beef, cabbage and potatoes at least once a month. The were never my favorite meals, but I always loved when we had Colcannon. It is still a comfort food for me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Recipe - Colcannon, Irish Potato Casserole

This is a traditional Irish side dish, that is hardy, delicious and quite comforting on a cold winter's evening.
