Creamy Colcannon

The creamiest Colcannon recipe ever ! With Spinach and Ham this is always a winning side dish

We love this Creamy Colcannon, not only on or around St Patrick's Day, but have it on the menu at least once a month.

I am busy putting together our actual menu for St Patrick's Day this year and have tried many side dishes, but my family have already requested this Colcannon, which is a creamy, heavenly dish to be part of the menu.

Well, I am definitely not complaining as this is one of my favorite recipes for a Colcannon. I know this recipe is not an authentic Irish recipe, but it is one that goes so well with most meat dishes traditionally served on St Patrick's Day.

Something else I love ... quick, easy and no strange ingredients. I use a couple of slices (thinly sliced) cooked Ham from the Deli and the Spinach I have growing in the garden.

  1. Can you believe I have never tried Colcannon?! It's been on my list of things to try for a few years - I think I need to add this to our St. Patrick's Day menu!

  2. I think that classic Colcannon is made with cabbage instead of spinach. Am I right?

    1. That is right, Marcia, traditional Colcannon is made with either cabbage or kale :-)

  3. This sounds really delish! I love the addition of spinach!
