Tag: smoked bacon

Something that was made at least once a week in our house. Adding smoked bacon into it really adds a nice flavour dept. I really hope you bring this classic back as part of your meals during the week. It also goes so well with any steak.

For the colcannon

1kg of potatoes peeled and diced

Diced smoked bacon
Sliced savoy cabbage (thinly)
4tbsps of cream or milk
1 spring onion
Add the peeled and diced potato to a pot of cold water, cover, place over a high heat and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the potato is tender when pierced with a fork.
With a potato masher, mash all the potatoes until smooth

Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan and simmer
on a low heat for 5-6 mins until the bacon and cabbage is fully cooked through.

Serve the colcannon with some Irish butter and sliced spring onion.
