1/2 cup butter (8 tablespoons or 1 (4-ounce) stick

6 scallions, white parts only (use tender green parts for garnish below), finely sliced

6 large potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks


White pepper

2 cups sharp shredded Cheddar

Tender green parts from scallions above, finely chopped or 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives


  1. Take 1 tablespoon of the butter and add to a small fry pan, then saute the white parts of the scallions until soft. In a large sauce pot, boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain the potatoes well, add the sauteed scallions, then mash and whip in butter, salt and white pepper, to taste, with a beater. Fold the cheese into the potatoes and allow it to melt. Stir to evenly distribute cheese, transfer to a serving dish and garnish with finely chopped tender green parts of scallions or fresh chives.
