Serves 6-8, 30 minutes preparation, 10 - 30 minutes cooking

For a twist on traditional mashed potato try our champ that is full of flavoursome spring onions – it goes perfectly with roasted joints of meat or sausages in gravy.


  • 1.35kg/3lb potatoes, well scrubbed and left whole in their jackets
  • 290ml/½ pint milk
  • 85g/3oz butter
  • salt and white pepper
  • 1 large bunch spring onions, finely chopped


  1. Boil the potatoes in salted water until soft. Drain and remove from the pan. Leave until just cool enough to peel. Mash thoroughly.
  2. Boil the milk and add to the potato, together with the spring onions.
  3. Season the mash to taste and stir well and, for a great effect when serving your roast dinner, put the champ into a serving dish.
  4. Make a well in the centre and add the butter. Serve immediately.
