Yummy Scrummy Traditional Dish!

This is a dish I look forward to every Halloween season!  Nowadays, with the internet, you'll find many variations of this recipe (though they don't seem to differ a whole lot) but today I am sharing our family version, which has been handed down for generations.  It's super simple and super delicious so serve up this traditional dish to all the creatures in your household, they'll be goblin it down!  hehe, couldn't help myself

4 c. mashed potatoes
2 1/2 c. cabbage, cooked and finely chopped
1/2 c. butter (do not use margarine!)
1/2 c. evaporated milk or cream (I prefer the evap)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. white pepper

 Saute onion in butter.  Make mashed potatoes as usual (do not use potato flakes!  Afterall, they didn't have such in the Olde World).  In a large pan, place all the ingredients except the cabbage.  Cook over low heat and blend thoroughly.  Turn the heat to medium and add the cabbage.  Stir occasionally until completely heated through.  Serves 8.


  1. Thanx for sharing the recipe. It actually doesn't sound too bad.

  2. Thanks for sharing the family recipes lately! I believe Colcannon came from Ireland??


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
