  • Summary

    Editor's note: The recipe and introductory text below are from Irish Traditional Cooking by Darina Allen. One of the best-loved ways of cooking potatoes was (and is) to mash them with boiling milk, add chopped scallions or chives and serve this creamy, green-flecked mixture with a blob of yellow butter melting in the center. Leeks, nettles, peas and brown crispy onions are all delicious additions.

    Ingredients

    • 6 to 8 unpeeled baking potatoes, e.g., Russet or Yukon Gold
    • 1 bunch scallions (use the bulb and green stem)
    • 1 1/2 cups milk
    • 4 to 8 tablespoons butter
    • salt and freshly ground pepper
