Alison's Colcannon

Alison's Colcannon
  • 5 pounds potatoes, scrubbed and cubed with skin
  • 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 1 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1 large head cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1 bunch green onions, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Place potatoes in a large pot, and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 10 minutes, until potatoes are soft enough to mash. Drain. Transfer to a large serving bowl, and mash potatoes with 1/4 cup of butter and all of the sour cream until well blended.
  2. Melt remaining butter in a large pot (you can use the same pot) over medium heat. Add garlic and green onion, and cook, stirring until softened. Add the cabbage, cover the pan, and let the cabbage steam for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir the cabbage mixture into the mashed potatoes, and season liberally with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
