Easy Irish Recipes – Colcannon and Cream O’ Cabbage

Easy Irish Recipes

For St. Patricks dinner last year, we went all out. Corned Beef N’ Cabbage, Colcannon, Cream O’Cabbage and even Irish lime cabbage gelatin with roasted walnuts, ha!   #toolegittoquit

But of everything Irish we’ve tried at our table, these two have been the most well received. In fact, they’re keepers. Got them from an Irish born Lassy here in Bend.  Trot it out for St. Patty’s day or anyday.  Delicious!



Colcannon – mashed potatoes with shredded kale or collards.

Just take your favorite mashed potato recipe, throw in some microsliced kale to boil with the potatoes and “spuds o blarney”  you’ve got dinner.  This is an inexpensive dish that is great for feeding a lot of people in a hurry on the cheap.  What’s more, according to the “Food Lover’s Guide” Colcannon is actually more traditional an Irish meal than Corned beef and cabbage, hey.
