Vitamin C can help fight against cold and flu and many veg are full of it including potatoes and kale. Add nitrite-free Better Naked Bacon and you’ll get a healthier colcannon.
Firstly, peel the potatoes and cut into chunks. Boil in salted water until softened. Drain and set aside.
Pan fry the bacon in a pan until crispy. Cut into pieces and set aside.
Add the kale to the bacon pan with a small amount of water, cover with a lid for 4-5mins until soften. You could also steam the kale.
Finely chop two scallions.
Mash the potatoes with milk (or cream), and season with butter, salt and pepper – combine until creamy.
Add the kale and Better Naked Bacon pieces to the mashed potatoes.
Season to taste.
Add a dollop of butter to each serving (optional!)
