Irish Pot of Gold Mashed Potatoes

This is my favorite mashed potatoes! Sweet Sassy, these will make you want to dance a jig!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

Irish Pot of Gold Mashed Potatoes

2 lbs. Yukon Gold potatoes cut in chunks

20 scallions, some green tops included, chopped

1 1/2 cups milk

1/2 teaspoons peppercorns

1/4 cup snipped chives

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup (1 stick) Kerrygold melted and hot butter

Cook potatoes in salted water (I add a tablespoon of chicken base to the pot for flavor and color). Bring to boil and simmer 20 minutes or until done. Drain well and put potatoes back into the pot to get rid of any excess moisture.

While potatoes are cooking, put chopped scallions in a pan with milk and peppercorns. Simmer 5 minutes, then drain, reserving the milk and scallions separately.

Mash potatoes until smooth, stirring in enough of the milk to produce a creamy consistency. Stir in scallions and chives. Season to taste with salt & pepper.

Transfer to a warm serving bowl and make a well in the center to pour in the Kerrygold hot melted butter. Serve immediately, mixing in the butter at the table!
