Channeling Colcannon

Three ingredients (plus salt) never tasted so good. It must be the upcoming St. Patrick's Day that made me want to dump this lot on a plate of mashed potatoes. Not that Brussel sprouts cooked in pancetta come close to that Irish cabbage and potato delicacy. And bite my tongue but I loaded my mashed potatoes with English butter. Still, it's comforting to spoon this dish down at winter's end with bathing suit season not even a squint away. Also, local purveyor Trader Joe's, you have redeemed yourself from last week's suddenly expiring produce! xo

Ingredients

4 oz chopped pancetta

1/2 small red onion, chopped

1 bag shredded Trader Joe's Brussels sprouts

In medium heavy skillet over mid low heat, render the pancetta. I like mine a little crispy. 10 minutes. Add onion and a little salt, cook 5 minutes. Add sprouts, cooking until tender, 5-8 minutes. Be generous with the salt and pepper. If food sticks, deglaze with a tablespoon or two of water. Serve alone or ladled over mashed potatoes.

Eat – B
