Spy Glass 2

"Traditional Irish potato dish, very easy to make. Bear in mind that the UK and Ireland weren't exactly known for their cuisine, but for authenticity, this is what you want. For unauthentic but enhanced flavor, you can add bacon bits, or Cheddar cheese, or both."

  1. Place the potatoes, cabbage, and green onions into a large sauce pan, fill with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Drain the vegetables and place into a large bowl. Mash the potatoes and vegetables with the butter using a fork until the mixture is chunky, pouring in half-and-half gradually as you mash. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.

Made this recipe for a St. Patrick's Day party and the family loved it! The only change I made was adding one clove of garlic to the mash. :-) Good the next day too.

I increased the milk/butter just a touch and I threw in a half pound of crumbled crisp bacon. Comfort food at it's best. I made Guinness Corned Beef to go with it. Excellent meal.

Caulcannon was a regular dish in my house when I was growing up in Canada, but my Irish mother also added other root vegetables such as carrots, turnip and rutabaga. It's a great way to get kid...
