Colcannon Recipe - Delicious, light and fluffy mashed potatoes with spring onions (scallions), cabbage, cream, plenty of butter and seasoning. Topped with chives, this Irish potato recipe is the ultimate comfort food side dish.
Boil the potatoes with the garlic for 15 - 20 minutes until cooked through.
While the potatoes are cooking, melt 100g of the butter in a small frying pan and saute the cabbage and spring onions for 3 - 4 minutes until softened.
Drain the potatoes and mash (leave the garlic in).
Add the cabbage and spring onions (including the butter they were cooked in) to the potatoes.
Meanwhile warm the remaining butter and cream until the butter is melted (I do this in the pan I fried the cabbage in). Add to the potato and cabbage mixture.
Add the chives and plenty of salt and pepper and stir until throughly combined. Serve immediately with extra butter and chives to garnish.
