Irish Champ

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.
