Never heard of Colcannon? I hadn’t either until we had one of our usual food conversations at work.
Food is one of our favorite topics. Us Weight Watchers friends always have new recipes and food news to share. That’s when the subject of potatoes came up, and I learned about the merits of Colcannon – an Irish mashed potato dish with bacon and cabbage.
I admit, at first I wasn’t convinced that cabbage in my mashed potatoes would float my boat, but with a bit of bacon, I was willing to give it a shot.
What did I think of cabbage in my potatoes? Fantastic! I’m always trying to work extra veggies in a dish, so I was pleasantly surprised that my skepticism about the cabbage wasn’t warranted. Along side my stuffed pork chops, I couldn’t have made a better choice for a side dish.
Thanks Debbie and Carol! As usual, your food tips are right on target!
