Just in time for St. Patrick's Day! This recipe is native to Northern Ireland and served as the main dish! Be forewarned that butter is the substitute for gravy and that the potatoes are eaten with a spoon from the outside of the plate inwards with each spoonful dipped into the well of butter ;-)



Peel and quarter potatoes and cook in boiling water.

Meanwhile, simmer the milk and green onions in a saucepan for two minutes; add one half of the butter and simmer for three more minutes. Melt the other half of butter in a separate saucepan for serving.


Drain potatoes in a colander, return to pot, mash thoroughly, add the milk, green onion and butter mixture, season with salt and pepper, and mix well.

Pile the potatoes onto individual plates with a well made with the back of a spoon in the center of each. Equally distribute the melted butter into the center of each well and serve.

I strongly dislike the smell of cabbage cooking but it's worth it for this tasty Irish side dish.




  1. In a large saucepan, bring cabbage and water to a boil. Reduce heat and cover and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until tender. Drain but reserve the cooking liquid. Keep cabbage warm.
  2. Place cooking liquid and potatoes in a large saucepan and add enough additional water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and cook for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and keep warm.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring milk and onions to a boil and remove from the heat.
  4. Mash the potatoes in a large serving bowl. Add milk mixture and beat until blended. Beat in the cabbage and salt and pepper.
  5. Drizzle with the melted butter and parsley and serve.

I found this healthier version of Dublin coddle in my local newspaper a few years ago and have made it every St. Patrick's Day since.

Starchy potatoes are good for more than just a savory side dish. Make cute potato shaped confections, usually containing potatoes and powdered sugar.


Despite the name, these candies originated in Philidelphia.
