Irish Champ



  • In a large cooking pot, boil the unpeeled potatoes in salted water until fork-tender, approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
  • In the meantime, finely chop the green onions (white and green parts).
  • Remove the cooked potatoes from the water and peel each one. Place them back in the pot or a separate bowl and mash them while they are still hot.
  • Pour the cold milk in a medium or large sauce pan and add the green onions. Bring the milk slowly to a boil and simmer 3 to 4 minutes. Turn off the head and leave to infuse the flavors.
  • Spoon the mashed potatoes into the milk mixture. Beat in some 3 to 4 pads of butter.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Put a pad of butter on top and serve with corned beef, carrots and cabbage.
