This special version of mashed potatoes is called "champ" by the Irish- decadent is what I'd call these! These go great with Lamb Shanks in Guinness With Country Vegetables and is originally from a 1995 Bon Appetit.

Yummy potatoes. These were really simple and tasty. Thanks for sharing Leslie. Made for Cookbook Tag.
Yummy! I've had this in my cookbook for some time now and have finally gotten around to making it! A nice change to just ordinary mashed taters. I added some nutmeg to the milk and used salted butter. Served with haggis and (for PAC Fall 2007)Balsamic Butter Glazed Baby Carrots. Thanks Leslie!
I think I'll add sour cream to it next time. These were wonderful! Great with Lamb!
