Champ Irish Mashed Potatoes
Champ is a variation on mashed potatoes that is traditional in Ulster, in North Ireland. Less intense than the classic dish, these mashed potatoes use leeks instead of scallions and a small amount of olive oil instead of heaps of butter. The Yukons add buttery color and flavor so you won't miss a thing.
