Champ (Mashed Potatoes from Ulster)

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/champ_mashed_potatoes_from_ulster.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 1996, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Traditionally, this dish is made with potatoes and scallions and topped with a great deal of butter. Substituting leeks for scallions produces a mellower flavor, one that doesn't require a rich finish. Yukon Golds also add buttery color and flavor.

4 servings, about 1 cup each | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil and cook, partially covered, until tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine leeks and milk in another saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook, partially covered, stirring occasionally, until the leeks are tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pan. With a potato masher, mash until smooth. Stir in oil and the warm leeks and milk. Season with salt and pepper.
