Recipe Week! Part 3

As promised, here is a recipe from our St. Patrick's Day feast:

Easy Colcannon


1 1/2 lbs medium red potatoes, cut into 1-in. cubes
7 1/2 cups chopped cabbage
8 green onions, chopped
1 cup fat free milk
1/3 cup reduced-fat butter
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper


1. Place potatoes in a Dutch oven; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook over medium heat for 12-15 minutes or until potatoes are almost tender, adding the cabbage during the last 5 minutes of cooking. 

2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine green onions and milk. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-6 minutes or until onions are soft. 

3. Drain potato mixture. Mash with milk mixture, butter, salt and pepper.

This recipe was really easy. I may or may not have made it after a few drinks. 

Hey, it was St. Patrick's Day, do you blame me?
I was sold when I saw easy in the recipe name. 

Also, just had some leftovers for lunch today (4 days after making this!) and it was still delicious. Score.

Happy Hump Day!
