Colcannon potatoes are irish mashed potatoes,Theyre laced with leeks and scallions and cabbage,& just general yummyness,the kind of yummyness you appreciate when your frozen and starving.
Theyre great on their own or with a casserole.Lovely with sausages and gravy,we all love gravy now don’t we!
This served 6 rather large portions!!
10g butterDrizzle of veg oil ( just to stop the butter burning)25g Leeks10g Scallions20g Shredded Savoy CabbageMash100g Potatoes20g ButterCream or milk (your choice but creamy mash is lovley mash!)Plenty of seasoning ( I used cracked black pepper & sea salt)
Blanch your savoy & set aside.
Right,its best to use a wok,but I used a frying pan that was a little to small ( there goes my lazyness,getting the better of me again!).Add you 1 lot of your butter,& your oil.Alow to get hot, then add your blanched cabbage,after about a minute add your leeks and scallions.
Give it a good old mix.
Keep it going until you start to notice some parts going brown,Its all flavour I say!
When you feel happy with the look of your mix,set it aside.
Mash your potatoes,Give them a good old mash,Season,add your cream and butter!
Potatoes of the colcannon variety.
