Ready In

"One of the favorite ways the Irish like their potatoes. To go even further try adding any of these: Leeks, peas, brown crisp fried onions. Instead of the green onions I added frozen peas after mashing the potatoes with hot milk then kept the potatoes hot. Looked and tasted great. You can make this recipe ahead and reheat in 350f oven covered with foil for about 30 minutes"
