when fighting with my 6 brothers many moons ago back in Ireland the usual war cry at the dinner table was
" MUM IS THERE ANY MORE SPUDS !!!!"
by the way potatoes with green onions, (scallions) just the green stem part,milk and a ton of butter is to die for "champ" been the official name.
You can make some great stuff with spuds, potato bread, but my favorite was boxdey made only around Halloween, potatoes ground to a pulp some other ingredients i cant remember, cooked in the oven and fried up in the mornings with a ton of butter bacon, eggs etc. , no wonder so many people die of heart attacks in Ireland.
