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!
It is delicious, rich, and comforting- and so easy to make. I’m kicking this One Pot Cheesy Sausage Potatoes and Cabbage colcannon recipe one up a bit with some sausage (we used german sausage, but you can use bratwurst, polska kielbasa, whatever you’d like) and lots of cheese.
This meal is so comforting and delicious, it can turn any day around.

Tips to Perfect One Pot Cheesy Sausage Potatoes and Cabbage Colcannon
One Pot Cheesy Sausage Potatoes and Cabbage Recipe
- 4 german sausage links diced into 1/2" slices
- 1/2 head of green cabbage diced into small strips
- 2 cups chicken stock
- 5 large russet potatoes diced into 1/2" cubes
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 cup cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup fresh shredded parmesan cheese
- green onions to garnish
On medium high heat, add sausage into pan with diced cabbage.
Brown, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
When cabbage and sausage are browned, add chicken stock and potatoes.
Cover with a lid and cook until stock is absorbed and potatoes are soft.
Reduce heat to low.
Mash potatoes in pot with a fork or the back of a wooden spoon (they will be a bit lumpy, that is fine!)
Add in cheese and butter, stir well to combine.
When cheese and butter are melted, remove from heat and serve!
If you have baked potatoes or leftover mashed potatoes, this recipe is an awesome way to use them up!
