All Saints Day Colcannon

Here is another wonderful side dish to enjoy at your Thanksgiving table. It is traditional to serve mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving, why not switch things up by adding  a bit of cabbage to it. You could make this wonderful colcannon dish. If I am making mashed potatoes and have to transport them for a potluck, I put them in my crockpot. It is so much simpler to plug them in and keep them warm. This way we dont have to use up much needed stove top space.

    Hmmm…St. Patrick’s Day is coming up…..(just found your blog here in February). What a great tip about keeping them warm in a crockpot. Always my dilemma with a company dinner so I tend to opt for rice. Thank you so much.
