Personal Notes:
I found this recipe out of Bon Appetit and asked Mom to make it for my Birthday. She has been making it for St. Paddy's Day ever since. Colcannon is an Irish dish. It is traditionally made on Halloween and a gold coin is concealed in it, whoever finds it will be married within a year..
