Colcannon – Irish Recipes


  • 2 lbs Potatoes
  • 1 Savoy  or Green cabbage
  • 2 oz Butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper


Peel the potatoes, cut into even-sized chunks, cover with water, add salt to taste and cook for 20 minutes until cooked. Drain and place back on the heat to make sure that all the water has evaporated. Mash.

Meanwhile bring another pan of water to the boil. Rip the tender leaves of the cabbage into pieces and cook in the boiling water for around 15 minutes until tender.

Melt the butter in a frying pan and cook the chopped onions for 2-3 minutes until just soft. Add the mashed potatoes and the cabbage and fry for a few minutes until just starting to brown. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley and serve.
