A delicious Irish peasant dish of milk and butter-moistened mashed potatoes mixed with finely chopped cooked onions and kale or cabbage. This green-flecked heap is traditionally served with a pool of melted butter in the center. It can contain other ingredients such as scallions, leeks, onions and chives.
ColcannonThere are many variations based on locality for this dish, which is made throughout Ireland. The ingredients vary also by season.  The dish is often eaten with boiled ham or Irish bacon. At one time it was a cheap, year-round staple food, though nowadays it is usually eaten in autumn/winter, when kale comes into season. When kale is in season, it is much preferred over cabbage.
