This is a truly traditional Irish recipe for those looking to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day in an authentically Celtic way. The no-fuss pub grub recipe is based around a staple Irish potato-based dish, called colcannon.

The dish is made from fluffy mashed potatoes infused with sauteed cabbage, spring onions and bacon with sausages and Worcestershire sauce served on top. Colcannon is the ultimate winter comfort food and this version, which is topped with caramelized onion and Guinness gravy, has to be the most indulgent one ever. If you find your energy zapped after a long-days celebrations on Saint Patrick’s Day, this recipe will set you straight!

If you want to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day the way a true Dubliner would, then wash down your Colcannon with a pint of Guinness, or a cup of tea if you’re feeling tame.
