I have been slightly obsessed with kale lately, and even though I usually make this famous Irish potato dish with cabbage I have also seen it made with kale.  Both versions are so good and you really can't go wrong with buttery potatoes and kale!

2 lbs  potatoes
8 tbsp butter
3 cups chopped kale
1 cup milk
4 spring onions
Salt and pepper

Cook the potatoes in salted water until tender.

Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a medium pan, cook kale until wilted, about 5 minutes.

In a small pan, heat the milk and chopped spring onions until barely simmering.

Drain the potatoes, return to the pot and mash.  Add the kale and the milk and onions and mix together.  Season with salt and pepper.

Put the colcanon in a serving bowl, use a large spoon to create a well in the center and melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter in a small bowl and pour into the well.
