Irish Leftovers For Breakfast

(If you haven't, please check out the link for new info on our blogger get together)

After two Irish meals last week, we had a few leftovers and as you might expect, we turned them into breakfast - we had a banger and some colcannon to work with. Bev mixed an egg and some flour into the colcannon to help it hold together, formed them into patties and fried in butter and olive oil until they were brown and crispy. I chopped up the banger (really a brat) and heated it in the micowave while I fried the eggs – mine sunny side up and Bev’s over easy.

Here are pics of the assembly process.

It was delicious and I was surprised that the cabbage flavor didn’t come through stronger – although they did taste different than just potatoes. And perhaps the best part is that the corned beef is still in the frig.

Have a great day – the sun’s shinning brightly today.



  1. I've never had colcannon - sounds like something I'd love. This looks really good!

  2. Thanks to bloggers, this is the first St. Paddy's Day that I've ever even heard of colcannon. I must try it some time. Larry, once again, you've cooked up a perfect egg! Great photo. I quartered the remainder of the head of cabbage in my fridge, and sauteed in butter. I was so simple and simply delicious. I can't believe I've never sauteed cabbage before. I've found a new side dish.

  3. I love colcannon - had planned to make some myself for SPD but never got to it. Might yet though!! You are THE breakfast man I tell ya. That just looks downright yummy.

  4. Isn't it fun, Larry, to be creative --and make some delicious meals from leftovers?????? You did GREAT.

  5. When I posted that Croque Madame last weekend, I knew you would love it because you love a fried egg on anything! This looks great, Larry.
