  1. Place potatoes in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until fork tender.
  2. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, reserving drippings, crumble and set aside. In the reserved drippings, saute the cabbage and onion until soft and translucent. Putting a lid on the pan helps the vegetables cook faster.
  3. Drain the cooked potatoes, mash with cream or milk and season with salt and pepper. Fold in the bacon, cabbage, and onions, then transfer the mixture to a large serving bowl. Make a well in the center, and pour in the melted butter. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

Some people like to add garlic, sliced scallions...the choice is yours, this dish is very each to customize to your taste.
