Traditional Irish Mashed Potatoes

One of my favorite traditions of St. Patrick’s Day is the Irish Mashed Potatoes, otherwise known as Colcannon (said with an Irish accent).  You can serve with corned beef and cabbage, or prepare with a delicious Irish beef or lamb stew.  However you serve it, the combination of potatoes, butter, kale, bacon and fresh chives is amazing together and makes the perfect St. Patricks Day meal complete.

Take advantage of the sale at Safeway on 5 lb bags of gold or red potatoes for just $2.50, Farmer John Bacon on sale for $2.99, and organic kale on sale for $.99/lb. to make your family traditional Irish mashed potatoes.
