15

To make the meatballs – mix together minced lamb + finely sliced spring onions + chopped parsley + S&P

16

Roll the meatballs in flour and fry until golden

Drain off any excess fat

Cover the meatballs with lamb stock and braise until tender

Add a sprig of thyme if you like

Add baby carrots 15 minutes before the end of cooking time

3

Prepare a batch of creamy mashed potatoes

2

Add cooked kale for the colcannon

Not forgetting the traditional ‘well’ of melting butter!

8

Add sliced spring onions for the champ

12

Once the sauce has reduced to a gravy consistency serve generous portions alongside the champ & colcannon, & sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley

14

A slice of buttered soda bread to accompany is a must, and a Guinness, if you’re in the mood!

May the luck of the Irish enfold you”!
