Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 2 cups leftover colcannon
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 small egg beaten
  • Pinch of salt
  • Dried breadcrumbs
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • Pickled jalapeƱos for serving


  • Place colcannon in a mixing bowl. Add flour, egg, and salt and mix well.
  • Heat a bit of olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Take 1/4 cup of the colcannon mixture and form into a patty. Coat the patty with breadcrumbs. Fry colcannon patties for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Remove from frying pan and place on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil. Continue until all patties are fried.
  • Mix mayonnaise and sriracha sauce together. Place a dollop of sauce on each colcannon cake, and top with a pickled jalapeƱo. Serve hot.
