This dish is found in many cultures, with slight variations, and of course, different names. It’s called Colcannon in Ireland and Rumbledethumps in Scotland. Bubble and Squeak is a British variation that usually contains sausage as well.
We like to call ours Colcannon, due to our Irish heritage, and we often serve it on St. Patrick’s Day. Actually, this is one of our favorite comfort foods anytime of year. Eat it as your main meal if you’re vegetarian or serve with ham, sausage, pork chop, chicken, or corned beef if you’re not.
