HAPPY ST. PADDY'S DAY MY DEAR FRIENDS...HERE IS A SIMPLE IRISH RECIPE TO ENJOY!   This cabbage shot was taken at the farmers market in Darien Ga.

                                             Easy Irish Colcannon
  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 head cabbage, chopped
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  1. 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.
  2. 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.

* I made this tonight n added about 1/4 tsp of nutmeg...just sprinkle over the mixture n blend it in! It really gives this dish a nice flavor! I served it with a ham steak. It was a perfect meal for St Patricks day!

Nice looking cabbage! We had our corned beef and cabbage a couple days early.

Growing up we had cabbage and potatoes cooked together with cornbread on side. Then in Ireland or on public television I learned about colcannon (didn't know about green onion which is a plus). Now I make it frequently.

Loved your original twist on Irish green, Janis. Hope you and Jer are having a great St. Paddy's Day.
