A traditional Irish dish made of potatoes and kale or cabbage.

1.5 lbs potatoes - peeled and chopped
1/4-1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup hot milk
1/2 head cabbage - cored and finely shredded
1/2 lb cooked diced ham or 3/4 cup chopped bacon cooked until crisp
1/4 cup scallions - finely chopped
freshly ground black pepper

Boil or steam potatoes until tender - drain and mash well. Combine with butter and milk.

Boil cabbage in unsalted water until it becomes bright and mostly tender. Drain well, return to pot and break apart any large pieces using a wooden spoon.

Add cabbage, ham or bacon and scallions to mashed potatoes - stirring in gently. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Top with additional butter of course :)

**Allergy-free substitutions:
Milk - unsweetened So Delicious Coconut milk
Butter - preferred non-dairy butter replacement or coconut oil
you can also use regular onion or chives in place of the scallions
