Colcannon


Irish comfort food.  I love this dish!

3 T olive oil
3 T butter
1/2 head green cabbage, shredded
2 leeks, sliced thin
2 lbs baking potatoes
1/2 c milk or cream
salt & pepper to taste

+++++++++++++++

Heat oil  in a large skillet or wok.  Add cabbage & leeks and saute until tender, about 30 minutes.  Stir frequently.

Meanwhile, peel the potatoes and cut them into quarters.  Put them in a sauce pan and cover with water.  Cook over medium high heat until soft, them drain.  Mash them and beat in the butter and milk or cream.  Fold in the cabbage mixture, season to taste and serve hot.
