Irish Champ

Do you love mashed potatoes and green onions? Well, this is a recipe you will enjoy.
This is a recipe that is more known in Northern Ireland. It would be a wonderful side dish to anything you may serve.

If you love green onions and potatoes it is a nice change to plain mashed taters.

How to Make Irish Champ


  1. 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.
  2. Blend or mash the potatoes, till smooth and add your butter and seasonings. Stir in the milk and green onion until evenly mixed. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Serve piping hot in bowls.
