Colcannon Mashed Potatoes

This potato dish is a delicious combination of starchy potatoes mashed together with butter, milk, kale, leeks, and a good amount of seasoning. It is a nutritious and delicious dish without the overpowering flavor of kale.

Place the potatoes into a large pot or dutch oven and cover with water, about an inch. Cook the potatoes over medium heat and let come to a boil.

Season with 2 teaspoons of salt, and let simmer for 15-20 minutes until potatoes are fork tender and quite soft. Drain and set aside.

Return the same pot to the stove over medium heat. Melt the butter and saute leeks for a couple of minutes until softened.

Add kale and cook until wilted but still bright green in color. About 4 minutes.

Return the potatoes, pour in milk, and black pepper to taste. Stir everything together and let it come to a gentle boil. Remove from heat.

Mash the potatoes until creamy, I like to leave mine a little chunky. Serve with green onions and a pinch of black pepper.
