Ingredients

  • 3 pounds russet or Yukon gold potatoes, about 8 medium
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 8 green onions
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter, plus additional for serving

Instructions

  1. Peel potatoes, cut into large chucks, and place in a medium pan. Cover with water and add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, 35 to 40 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and drain potatoes well. Return to pot and let potatoes dry for a couple of minutes. (This will make the mashed potatoes lighter and fluffier.)
  3. Finely chop green onions. Place in a small saucepan. Add milk and simmer 4 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Add butter and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt to potatoes and mash with a potato masher or fork. Gradually add hot milk and green onions, beating with a wooden spoon until smooth and creamy. Place in a warm serving bowl and top with a knob (a couple of tablespoons) of butter. Makes 6 cups.
