Colcannon with Kale and Bacon is a tasty side dish and an excellent choice to make for St. Patrick’s Day, however, I could eat it probably every single day.
Colcannon is a traditional Irish dish of buttery mashed potatoes with sauteed kale or cabbage.
I added crunchy bacon because it goes so well together, and who would not like a bit a crunch to their bite.
Let’s be honest, I absolutely adore mashed potatoes. Well, I love potatoes in general.
There are so many amazing meals that we could make using this amazing ingredient. Don’t you agree?
Anyhow, back to mashed potatoes. I said this many times before, but let me mention again.
When I go to the restaurant I order a bowl of mashed potatoes rather than focused on anything else.
This tasty side dish is just incredible. It is warm, comforting, delicious and such an easy dish to make.
If you want to make it vegetarian or even vegan, skip bacon of course and use dairy-free butter and nut milk to create a creamy texture.
Although I do like a bit of chunky mash from time to time. So as you can see it is really possible to create this dish completely “clean” and vegan.
