Champ

Champ created by der_misanthrope

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.

    We love champ!!! I never follow a recipe for it but this is the closest to what I do but I serve it with sour cream with a pat of butter in the center of the portion, inside a divot I press into it. Give it a try that way! It’s delicious!!

    Made this exactly as directed and it came out awefully pretty but ... gummy is the only description I can think of. I may have slightly over cooked the potatoes and that may have been the contributing factor, but they did not go over very well and I'm not sure I'll be trying them again. Thanks for the recipe anyway. :)

    What a great thing to do to potatoes! I have made this twice and everyone truly enjoys it. This is a "KEEPER"! Why would anyone want mashed potatoes any other way? Thank's a bowlfull, Millie.

    These were the very best potatoes ever! They were fluffy and so delicious. We couldn't believe we'd never tried them before and can't imagine we'll make them any other way from now on! I even bought some lovely Irish butter to pool in the center. I used five pounds of red skinned potatoes, and the other portions seemed just right for them. Thanks Miller for another wonderful, informative recipe. Bless you.
