Champ (Mashed Potatoes from Ulster)
- Active Time 25m

4 servings, about 1 cup each
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.
- 1 1/2 pounds potatoes, preferably Yukon Gold, peeled and cut into chunks
- 1 cup chopped leeks, washed
- 1 cup low-fat milk
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Freshly ground pepper to taste
Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil and cook, partially covered, until tender, about 15 minutes.
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.
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.
