Champ is as good as it is unknown in Australia; Ireland’s take on mash potatoes.
You can happily substitute spring onions for red onions or (French) shallots as I often do.
Or become a real champ warrior by adding bacon and ham.
100gm spring onions, sliced thinly
Salt and pepper
- Make your mash potatoes as you normally would; plenty of butter and seasoning. If you have a ricer, use that you get perfectly smooth mash, if not, buy one.
- Stir through the spring onions.
- Try not to keep sampling to check the seasoning for the 20 minutes that your braise is finishing off!
