I was unaware of this dish before I tested it. Colcannon is a traditional Irish recipe, and I see why it’s stayed popular through the years. The addition of kale to the mashed potatoes, makes this dish perfect as a side dish. Served alongside a ham steak or grilled salmon, this simple dish of mashed potatoes is delicious.


  • 2 cups yellow potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 1 bunch of kale, torn into small small pieces

  • 1/2 cup whole milk

  • Salt to taste

Yields: serving for 4-6

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes


  1. In a heavy bottom saucepan, add the potatoes. Cover with water and add salt.

  2. Boil until the potatoes are tender. Remove from heat.

  3. Drain a little, and roughly mash with a fork. Add the milk.

  4. In another saucepan, place about 2 cups of water and add salt.

  5. Once the water boils, add the kale.

  6. Cook for 2 minute, then remove with a strainer or slotted spoon.

  7. Add the kale to the mashed potatoes.

  8. Simmer the masked potato mixture with the kale for a few minutes. Serve hot.
