Servings 4


  • 2 pounds potatoes peeled and halved
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 bunch green onions thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup butter cut into pieces
  • salt to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste


  • Place potatoes in a large pot and cover them with salted water. Bring the water to a boil.
  • Turn the heat down to medium-low and let the potatoes simmer until they're soft, which should take about 20 minutes.
  • Drain the water from the potatoes and then put them back in the pot. Cover them with a clean dish towel.
  • Set the pot on the stove over very low heat to let the potatoes dry out for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • While the potatoes are drying, put the milk and green onion in a small saucepan. Heat them over medium-low heat until warm, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Once the potatoes are dry, add butter and salt to the pot. Mash everything together with a potato masher until the mixture is smooth.
  • Mix the warm milk and green onion into the mashed potatoes until everything is well combined.
  • Add pepper to taste.
