Nothing goes together like potatoes and cabbage.
- 1 small head cabbage quartered and cored
- 6-8 medium boiling potatoes peeled
- 2 slices bacon, chopped fine
- 6 green onions, white and green parts chopped fine and separated
In a large pot, salt and boil enough water to cover cabbage. Add cabbage and parboil until almost cooked. It should have a bit of bite. Strain, reserving water, and slice cabbage into quarter-inch strips once cool. Bring strained water back to a boil and cook potatoes until tender, adding more water if needed, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile render fat from bacon and set browned bacon bits aside. Mash potatoes with milk, butter, to desired consistency. Add green onion parts, bacon, salt and pepper. Reheat bacon fat and saute white parts of green onion. Add sliced cabbage and cook until softened stirring often. Mix cooked cabbage with mashed potatoes and serve immediately.
