Irish Mashed Potatoes

Holy Moly August was busy! I'm sure you can tell by the complete lack of posts. I started a new job, went on a 10 day cruise to Alaska, and my best friend got married... yup... pretty busy month.
So I thought I would ease myself back in with a simple yet comforting food: potatoes!
Irish Mashed Potatoes are super easy, creamy, with little kick. Pair this with some seasonal vegetables, and a nice protein like sirloin. MMMMMM. It's 1.50am, I want sirloin and Irish mashed potatoes...

Irish Mashed Potatoes
Servings: 3-4
Prep & Cook Time: 30 minutes


2-3 pounds potatoes (I used Yukon gold)

11/2- 2 cups milk

1 stick butter

1 tsp. salt

4-6 scallions or green onions


1- Wash and halve potatoes, then cook about 30 minutes in a large pot of boiling water, or until you can easily insert a fork. Drain.

2- In a medium pot bring to boil milk, then add butter, stirring to melt.

3- Add scallions and continue to cook another minute.

4- Place the potatoes back into the pot used to cook them. Mash potatoes while adding the milk mixture until smooth. Enjoy!
