Colcannon-Stuffed Baked Potatoes

From chicory and escarole, to chard and spinach, I love greens — all kinds, prepared all different ways. Because of my fondness for greens, I look forward to St. Patrick’s Day. It gives me an excuse to go even more green than usual.

One of my favorite Irish recipes is colcannon, a dish made with mashed potatoes and either kale or cabbage. This St. Patrick’s Day, my colcannon has a new twist: Colcannon-Stuffed Baked Potatoes.

More convenient than making mashed potatoes at the last minute, these are ideal for making ahead. You can bake the potatoes ahead of time and assemble them early in the day. They’re then ready to go into the oven to heat at dinnertime. To make these, simply bake some russet potatoes. Once the potatoes are baked, cut them in half lengthwise and scoop the potato into a mixing bowl, leaving about 1/4-inch of potato with the skin, so they have enough stability for stuffing. Set the potato skins aside. Mash the potatoes in the bowl and mix with finely chopped cooked kale, Earth Balance, minced scallions, a splash of warm soy milk, and salt and pepper to taste. Spoon the colcannon mixture into the potato skins and arrange in a baking dish. You can then bake them immediately until hot or cover and refrigerate and then bake them when you need them.

For St. Patrick’s Day, I serve these potatoes with roasted carrots to represent the colors of the Irish flag.


This looks delicious. I'll make these for my potluck tomorrow!

Thank you for this recipe!
Oh wow that looks pretty good! I love twice baked potatoes and this is a great way to use them for Saint Pat's Day, great post!

1 lb elbow mac.
1-2 containers of We Can’t Say Its Cheese

Cook mac until tender
Add We Can’t Say Its Cheese spread, mix and serve.
Its melts so easily and I like lots of cheese so I add more than 1 container.
It tastes just like cheese. Got the tip for this product from Veg News April pg 60 great new picks. A local health food store had it. Also, the local Whole Foods manager here in Ct said they were going to carry it in May. I never had a vegan cheese that tasted so good and melts for cooking like We Can’t Say Its Cheese.

Oh wow! How did I miss that you also have a blog on top of all those killer books?

Thank you. Subscribed. :)
