Champ is the name of a mashed potato dish served in Scotland and Ireland. The potatoes are often mixed with other vegetables such as leeks or even mashed beetroot when they acquire different regional names. Champ should be piled up steaming hot on individual plates and a crate made in the centre of each one, filled with melted butter. Each forkful is then dipped into this molten golden pool.
