Irish Mashed Potatoes -Colcannon


Irish Mashed Potatoes-Colcannon at Miz Helen's Country Cottage
This Irish Mashed Potato dish or the Irish call it Colcannon, is my most favorite of mashed potatoes. This is a very classic recipe and is rich, creamy, and buttery. We have added some bacon and fresh green onions, to put it over the top! The flavor of this recipe is fabulous and I could really make a meal from this one dish. Our family will line up for a serving or two of these special potatoes.

when it is cooled, then chop it.
