    The only mashed potato that could NEVER be instant for me is Colcannon. I could eat that until I just turned into one big spud. Now I want some.

    So I just googled Colcannon. Do you eat it hot or cold?

    I gotta tell ya; I'm trying that shit! Must tap into my drunken Irish roots!

    Have you ever had colcannon? A St. Patrick’s day favorite, it’s a mixture of creamy mashed potatoes and usually kale or cabbage. I first encountered colcannon while doing research on traditional Irish cooking. Not surprisingly the Irish have all sorts of ways of cooking potatoes, with festive names like champ, bruisy, pandy, boxty, and this one, colcannon. In the following colcannon recipe, we mix the mashed potatoes in with chopped cooked kale, green onions, milk or cream, and lots of butter. To serve one makes a depression in the middle of the mashed potatoes and puts a knob of butter in it. To eat it, you dip a forkful of the potatoes in the melted butter. If ever there was a recipe to get one to eat one’s greens, this is it.

    By the way, if you are looking for books on traditional Irish cooking, I can recommend two excellent ones. The first is Irish Traditional Cooking by Darina Allen, of the Ballymaloe Cookery School in County Cork. The second is The Country Cooking of Ireland by Colman Andrews, which won the James Beard award for cookbook of the year in 2010.



    Colcannon Recipe


    • Prep time: 10 minutes
    • Cook time: 25 minutes
    • Yield: Serves 4 as a side dish.


    For a variation, sub out half of the potatoes with parsnips. Can add chives, leeks, or bacon too.

    Add to shopping list
    Ingredients


    • 4 russet potatoes (2 to 2 1/2 pounds), peeled and cut into large chunks
    • Salt
    • 5-6 Tbsp unsalted butter (with more butter for serving)
    • 3 lightly packed cups of chopped kale, cabbage, chard, or other leafy green
    • 3 green onions (including the green onion greens), minced (about 1/2 cup)
    • 1 cup milk or cream


    Method

    1 Put the potatoes in a medium pot and cover with cold water by at least an inch. Add 2 tablespoons of salt, and bring to a boil. Boil until the potatoes are fork tender (15 to 20 minutes). Drain in a colander.
    2 Return the pot to the stove and set over medium-high heat. Melt the butter in the pot and once it's hot, add the greens. Cook the greens for 3-4 minutes, or until they are wilted and have given off some of their water. Add the green onions and cook 1 minute more.
    3 Pour in the milk or cream, mix well, and add the potatoes. Reduce the heat to medium. Use a fork or potato masher and mash the potatoes, mixing them up with the greens. Add salt to taste and serve hot, with a knob of butter in the center.

    Ohhhh, we are def making colcannon this week!

    Hangs head in shame and whispers, "I LOVE Velveeta" I don't eat it anymore...the first time I had it a friend's mother melted some in milk, and poured it over noodles. It was so fucking good. After that I had to beg my mom to buy it, so I could make "homemade" mac & cheese too! Poor mom didn't want that shit in her house.

    When I was a kid, Velveeta WAS cheese in our house. I won't touch it with a 1,000 foot pole now. That and that nasty fucking Miracle Whip.

    miracle whip has its place...great with a liitle lemon as a dip for steamed artichokes. Great for the last Thanksgiving sammich of the day (with lettuce and pepridge farm thin sandwich bread). Not much more than that, but it has uses.

    I'd rather go dry than taint any sandwich with Miracle Whip. Can someone raised on mayo ever like MW? I remember as a kid, it was always such a bummer to eat at a friends house whose mom used Miracle Whip.

    Miracle Whip has NO place anywhere. It's the absolute pits.

    I'm so glad I started the colcannon food love! I want some for dinner. Dreaming of corn beef hash as well now (it's the Irish and Scottish in me).
