Winni Recipes | Irish Colcannon Potatoes


· 3 ½ pounds potatoes, peeled and cubed

· ½ cup butter

· ½ cup half-and-half, more if needed

· 1 teaspoon salt

· ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

· ¼ teaspoon garlic powder, optional


1. Place the potatoes in a large pot over high heat. Pour salted water into the pot until the potatoes are completely submerged. Bring the potatoes to a boil.

2. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender. Drain and transfer the potatoes into a large bowl.

3. Mash the potatoes with a masher, fork, or electric mixer until the desired consistency is achieved.

4. In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook the butter and half-and-half until melted and combined, about 3 to 5 minutes.

5. Pour the butter mixture into the bowl of potatoes. Add the salt, black pepper, and garlic, and beat until light and fluffy. Add more half-and-half, one tablespoon at a time, if needed, until the desired creaminess is achieved.
