Colcannon Revisted

A couple of weeks ago, I made a Colcannon recipe for the Culinary Smackdown competition. You'll recall that I used red cabbage and the dish turned an unappetizing blue/purple.  Well, I remade it for this weeks St. Patrick's Day office potluck.  I used a bag of shredded cole slaw cabbage that had some carrots in it it too.  It looked much better and was a pretty big hit at lunch.  Three people asked for the recipe.   I only had enough left overs for my lunch today - and it still looked (and tasted) appetizing.
Colcannon with much better coloring.

Good evening Buzz Kill,

Appearances everything and red cabbage can ruin the appearance. Folks just don't like to eat purple food.

Enjoy your weekend.

I nearly forgot it was St.Patrick's Day. I'm glad you were able to use the recipe a second time and it's always nice when people eat what yu make.... unless you were truly counting on leftovers. Glad both happened for you. Have a good weekend!

Oy. St. Patty's Day. It was fun when I was younger and singler.

Nice work BK. I still don't grasp the whole "St. Patrick's Day" thing. Lots of saints. As a reformed Catholic I don't understand why this is so big. Yes, I get the Irish influence of our nation but St. Patrick was English. Do they know this? Read "How the Irish Saved Civilization" by Thomas Cahill to get a true understanding of St. Pat. The gruel looks awesome.
