- 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and halved
- 1 cup milk
- 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper to taste
Place potatoes into large pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 20 minutes.
Drain well. Return to very low heat and allow the potatoes to dry out for a few minutes. (It helps if you place a clean dish towel over the potatoes to absorb any remaining moisture.)
Meanwhile, heat the milk and green onions gently in a saucepan, until warm.
Mash the potatoes, salt and butter together until smooth. Stir in the milk and green onion until evenly mixed. Season with freshly ground black pepper . Serve piping hot in bowls. Set out some extra butter for individuals to add to their servings.
