In Ireland, this potato dish is known as Champ. Here at home, we'll feel like champs when we serve these easy-to-make mashed potatoes that get their "Irish" from the flavorful scallions in every bite.

What You'll Need

  • 4 pounds white potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 cup milk
  • 8 to 10 scallions (green onions), thinly sliced
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 2 teaspoons salt

What to Do

  1. Place potatoes in a soup pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook 20 to 25 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain and return potatoes to pot.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat milk over medium heat until hot but not boiling. Reduce heat to low, stir in scallions, and simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Add milk mixture to potatoes then add butter and salt. Mash with a potato masher or an electric mixer until potatoes are smooth and creamy. Serve immediately.
