Last night, various members of my family were in town, and we went out to a steakhouse for dinner. Mashed potatoes seem to be an expected side dish in such places. Well, this particular restaurant was quite original. Their "mashed potatoes" were colcannon, and advertised as such. This is definitely going on my "this week's supper" list come cool weather, when I get back to serious cooking! Here's a basic recipe for the dish. I believe the colcannon last night had green onions and parsely mixed in; some other recipes suggest kale in place of the cabbage, but any way you look at it, it is easy, and satisfying.
