St. Patrick’s Day Recipe: Taste of Home’s Easy Colcannon
I saw the picture of this Taste of Home recipe and was enticed. But what does Colcannon mean? It's an irish word meaning white-headed cabbage. It's a traditional Irish dish and looks yummy!
I'm half Asian and half Irish, so we had a wide variety of foods in our home when I grew up. My favorite for St. Patrick's Day is salty corned beef, mashed potatoes with lots of butter, boiled cabbage and white sauce/gravy over it all (with more salt). I haven't made it for years, but plan to with this easy recipe I found from Taste of Home!
- 1-1/2 pounds medium red potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 7-1/2 cups chopped cabbage
- 8 green onions, chopped
- 1 cup fat-free milk
- 1/3 cup reduced-fat butter
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- Place potatoes in a Dutch oven; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook over medium heat for 12-15 minutes or until potatoes are almost tender, adding the cabbage during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
- Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine green onions and milk. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-6 minutes or until onions are soft.
- Drain potato mixture. Mash with milk mixture, butter, salt and pepper. Yield: 8 servings.
