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
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!
