I love simple, delicious one pot meals that are comforting, warm, and full of flavor.

When I think Irish food, I immediately think of comfort – while Ireland gets a bad rap for food, everytime I have been to Ireland I’ve only ever had amazingly delicious food that is bursting with comforting flavors and fresh, beautiful ingredients.

While Irish food is often simple and unfussy, it is delicious – and great for large, comforting dinners that the whole family can eat.

One of my favorite comfort dishes is creamy, buttery colcannon.

If you’ve never had colcannon (one of my favorite Irish dishes, hands down), you are missing out!

  1. This was very good, although it took me a little while to make it hit the spot! Glad I came across this recipes thank you for sharing. I did forget to add the parmasean until the last minute but looked pretty on top with the onions.

  2. What are German Sausage links like? Are they already cooked like pre-cooked Polish Keilbasa or more like raw Italian sausage that needs to be throughly cooked?

    1. Deb – it all depends on your store. I used pre-cooked links in this recipe, but you can quickly boil some for this if you can only find uncooked links.

  3. Why wait for fall…. I had several heads of cabbage given to m e that I had to cook. Made this a few nights ago for the first time and my husband loved it. Making it again tonigh, but had to double it. Killer recipe!

  4. Looks and sounds like a yummy fall dish. Thanks for sharing your recipe at the Inspiration Spotlight Party. Pinned & shared.

  5. My son will definitely choose this. Looks yummy! I pinned at the Pinterest board. Thank you for your participation at Tasty Tuesday Creative K Kids.

  6. How do I not have this dish in my life? Or in front of me at this very moment? I sounds amazing and I love that you added sausage. And all that cheese! Sorry to hear about the move though… moving is SO hard! We moved at the beginning of the year and had a lot of renovations to the new house that were so stressful. Hope it gets easier and wrapped up soon so you can settle in and enjoy 🙂 Pinned and yummed and can’t wait to try!

  7. Sounds like a perfect dish for fall. Thanks for linking up at the Best of the Blogosphere Linky party!
