potatoes colcannon ~

Love these potatoes ~  Just the right amount of crunch from the cabbage and scallions. Perfect with a corned beef or pot roast. Adds a lightness and creaminess to any stew actually. You can either peel the potatoes or leave them rustic.

ingredients ~

  • 5 medium yukon gold potatoes about 1 1/2 lbs
  • Sous Salt
  • 6 T butter
  • 2 leeks,
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 c shredded savoy cabbage
  • 1 1/4 c milk
  • 1/2 c heavy cream
  • 1 scallion
  • pepper to taste

directions ~

Cut the potatoes into 1 inch cubes and place them in a sauce pan with col and salted water. Bring to a boil over medium heat and simmer for about 30 minutes until tender. Drain and add them back to the saucepan to dry out a bit under a low heat.¬† Doesn’t take long but does dry out the excess water.

While the potatoes are cooking melt 4 T of the butter in a skillet and add the leeks (which you have sliced thinly in slivers). Cook them about 6 minutes until they are tender. Add the garlic and cook just until you can smell it about 1 minutes. Add 1 cup of the cabbage at this point and cook until wilted. Now add the milk and cream and bring it to a simmer.

Mash up the potatoes a bit and add the potatoes and the remaining cup of cabbage to the milk mixture. Season with Sous Salt and Pepper. Dot with the remaining butter.
