- Place the potatoes in a large pan of salted water. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender without breaking up. Drain and return to the pan over a low heat to dry out.
- Just before the potatoes are ready, place the milk and spring onions or scallions in a small pan and simmer gently until the spring onions have softened in the milk, then remove from the heat.
- Mash the potatoes or pass them through a potato ricer if you want a really smooth result. Using a wooden spoon, beat in the butter until melted and then beat the milk and spring onion mixture until you have achieved a smooth, creamy mash. Season to taste.
- To serve, transfer to a warmed dish and add a knob of butter or use as required.
