I saw this recipe on the food network but I modified it so I could use what I had. The original recipe calls for a ham hock and is called Colcannon.

  • Step 1

    Start by boiling your potatoes (cut them up first though, I did half moons).

  • Step 2

    Cut up the bacon and throw it in another pot and start cooking it on med-low heat. If you like it crispy make it crispy if not then don't, I like it kinda chewy.

  • Step 3

    Chop up your cabbage into bite sized pieces and throw it in with the bacon and bacon grease. Place a lid on top and allow the cabbage to steam cook. Stir occasionally from the bottom up so it doesn't burn.

  • Step 4

    When your potatoes are cooked through and fork tender, drain, and mash them. I always add milk and butter but you don't have to if you don't want it.

  • Step 5

    Add salt and pepper to the cabbage according to your taste. Spoon over mashed potatoes and enjoy! Yum!
