Colcannon is an Irish dish made from mashed potato, cabbage, salt, pepper and whatever other bits you fancy throwing in. It's absolutely delicious, and a great way to use up excess mashed potato (although I made some from scratch). I like to stir some mustard into the mash and serve it with fried bacon. It made my mum and me a very happy lunch yesterday - and if you've got everything left over, it's pretty quick too.
salt and pepper
1. mix the mustard and boiled cabbage into the mashed potato and season with salt and pepper.
2. fry the bacon in a dry pan and set aside.
3. add a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and fry the mash for about 5 minutes, mixing occasionaly, until it starts to brown.
4. serve with the bacon.
