colcannon, a traditional Irish dish made with mashed potatoes and kale; other common ingredients include scallions, milk, butter, and salt and pepper.

Etymology:  from Irish Gaelic cál ceannfionn, cabbage fair-headed

I might have to try this recipe; most discussions of the dish speak very favorably of it.
