Irish champ (also known as poundies) is native to Northern Ireland where my family hails from. It’s an unpretentious mashed potato dish that can be served as a main dish or as a wonderful side to any meal. Traditionally served with a dollop of butter in the center it is beautiful to behold.
  • 6 medium potatoes, quartered, peeled
  • 1 cup milk

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Place potatoes into large pot and fill with water to cover.
