Irish Colcannon


3 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

4 scallions, with greens, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tablespoons butter
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Ground nutmeg to taste


3 ounces aged cheese of your choice, grated
6 large eggs or 6 teaspoons melted unsalted butter for vegan version


1. In a large pot, cook the potatoes in salted water for 20 minutes, or until they are tender. 
2. At the same time, in a large saucepan, lightly fry the scallions on 2 tablespoons butter, than stir in the 4 cups curly kale or green cabbage, shredded or thinly sliced, crushed garlic cloves, black peper, nutmeg and salt to taste. Cover the saucepan and cook the mixture in the butter for 3-5 minutes, or until tender, tossing every minute or so.
3. Drain cooked potatoes well, place them into a bowl and mash them with remaining milk and sour cream.
4. Mix mashed potatoes with green mixture, adjust seasoning and spoon mixture into a shallow ovenproof dish. 
5. Make 6 hollows in the mixture, crack an egg into each and bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the eggs are just set. 
6. Sprinkle with grated cheese of your choice and serve very hot.

Serves 6.

TIP: For vegan version of this dish replace 6 eggs with 6 teaspoons of unsalted butter, melted. 

NOTE: Leftover colcannon may be made into patties and refrigerated overnight. Fry them in butter next day for the most delicious potato cakes ever.
