Easy Colcannon Potato Recipe


This dish is a delicious combination of starchy potatoes mashed together with lots of butter, milk, kale, leeks, and a good amount of seasoning. It is a nutritious and delicious dish without the overpowering flavor of kale.

Boil the potatoes with salt until fork tender. Drain and set aside.

Return the same pot to the stove over medium heat. Melt the butter and saute leeks for a couple of minutes until softened.

Add kale and cook until wilted but still bright green in color. About 4 minutes.

Return the potatoes, pour in milk, and black pepper to taste. Stir everything together and let it come to a gentle boil. Remove from heat.

Mash the potatoes until creamy, I like to leave mine a little chunky.

Serve with green onions and a pinch of black pepper.
