Irish Colcannon
45 mins (prep 5, cooking 40)

Colcannon is a very traditional Irish dish which consists of mashed potatoes and cabbage. Traditionally colcannon was served at Halloween; The host would mix a coin, a button, and a ring into the colcannon and whoever found them had the following fortunes: coin meant wealth, button meant spinster or bachelor, and a ring meant marriage in the near future-- kind of fun! I like to serve this with Dublin Lawyer on top on St. Patrick's Day, just to change it up from the typical corned beef and cabbage. I also make this in lieu of mashed potatoes, just because it is so much more interesting. Enjoy!
