Colcannon with Kale

Market to Table Recipe:  Mashed Potatoes with Kale (Colcannon)
This version of the yummy Irish potato dish called Colcannon—a combination of buttery mashed potatoes and cabbage—uses kale instead of cabbage and is a wonderful accompaniment to grilled sausages or beef stew.  Potatoes and kale are abundant at market this time of year, so try this dish for St. Patrick’s Day!  Checkout the recipe from the Tasty Food Kitchen.
