This Irish potato recipe is pretty much mashed potatoes with an accent of kale and onions, but it’s VERY Irish. It’s called Colcannon.

- 2 Cups Baby Kale, Chopped Coarsely
- 1/2 Cup Green Onions, Chopped
- ¼ Cup Green Onions, Minced
- 1 Stick Salted Butter

- Cabbage can be substituted for kale, and the green part of knob onions can be substituted for the green onions.
