Cocannon

4 irish potatoes, cut into quarters
1/2 head of green cabbage, thinly sliced
chopped green onion
1 c milk
4 T butter
salt & pepper

In a medium pot, boil the potatoes. Meanwhile, combine milk, cabbage, onion, half the butter, salt and pepper into a large pot and bring to a simmer. Cook until the cabbage is soft, about 15 minutes. When the potatoes are fork tender, drain well and add to the cabbage mixture. Mash with a potato masher, adding in remaining butter and more salt & pepper to taste.

This has been a family favorite for years. I like it with porkchops, but then I like anything with porkchops.
