Cheesy Colcannon with Leeks

As St. Patrick's Day approaches, we've been pulling out our favorite cabbage and potato dishes.

While not exactly health food, this is a lovely one-dish potato & veggie casserole. Boiling the garlic cloves with the potatoes mellows their flavor, and the leeks lend a lovely sweetness (although you can substitute sauteed onions if you like) against the bite of the Irish cheddar cheese. We like to eat the leftovers for breakfast topped with a couple of fried eggs, over-easy.
