Red Potato Colcannon

There are countless variations on this classic Irish potato-and-cabbage combination—ours is made with steamed red potatoes, sauteed cabbage and just a touch of butter.

Serves 4

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound small red potatoes, scrubbed and cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 cups green cabbage, thinly sliced (about 1/2 head)
  • 1 cup low-fat milk, milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a Dutch oven. Place potatoes in a steamer basket and steam, covered, until just cooked through, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and cover to keep warm.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add cabbage and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage begins to brown, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Reduce heat to low. Stir in milk, salt and white pepper; cover and cook until the cabbage is tender, about 8 minutes. Add the cabbage mixture to the potatoes. Mash with a potato masher or a large fork to desired consistency.
