Amazing Irish Colcannon Potatoes
Let’s talk about these Colcannon Potatoes, aside from their delicious savory flavor, they are a must recipe for St. Patty’s day. Imagine creamy mashed potatoes mixed with sautéed delicate leeks, soft cabbage and caramelized onions.
I can serve this any time of the year, and is a perfect way to hide veggies from picky eating kids.
My favorite part: making a well in the center of the potatoes and adding a pad of butter. The traditional way the Irish serve it.
When the butter melts it created a soft warm pool of deliciousness.
Now that St. Patrick’s Day is upon us, can you believe that Spring is almost here?
For those of you that are lucky to live in places with 4 seasons, Spring must be beautiful. Seeing the snow melt, the trees grow leaves and flowers bloom.
Here in Miami, there’s not much change. We just go between not so hot, to kinda cool, to scorching heat.
But of course, I can’t complain… We live where people come for vacation.
For this year’s celebration, I am not going with the traditional corned beef. Instead, I am serving my Irish Colcannon Potatoes with Cooked Perfect® Fire Grilled Chicken.
I love it because it’s convenient and is grilled over an open fire to lock in the flavor for juicy, tender chicken. Just open the bag, heat, and serve.
All that grilled flavor without the fuss of grilling. So you can focus on finding leprechauns and drinking a tall pint of Stout beer.
Cooked Perfect Fire Grilled Chicken comes in a variety of unique flavors like Bourbon BBQ, Buffalo Ranch, Lemon Herb and more! I serve my Colcannon Potatoes with the Classic Style Thighs, though I think the tenders, chunks, drumsticks or wings would also be a hit!
