Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with traditional Irish Colcannon

You've gotta eat something green on St. Patrick’s Day, everybody knows that. At our house, we celebrate with the most delicious Irish food of all time, colcannon.

Colcannon is a traditional Irish dish of potatoes mashed with chopped kale, leeks and lots and lots of butter. No drizzling here. The name of the dish comes from the Gaelic “cal ceannann'” which means “whiteheaded cabbage.” Hopefully someone in your family will be repulsed by the name, leaving more colcannon for you!
