Ingredients

2 pounds medium red-skinned potatoes, scrubbed

2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus additional for salting water

1/2 cup milk

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

Freshly ground black pepper

2 to 4 scallions (white and green parts), finely chopped

Directions

  1. Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with cold water, and season with salt. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook until potatoes are very tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Heat the milk and butter in a small small saucepan until hot. With a potato masher or large fork, roughly smash the potatoes, while adding the hot liquid. Stir in half of the scallions, season with the salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl and scatter the remaining scallions on top before serving.
