To celebrate the launch of the Cook Britain recipe book, we have five fabulous Northern Ireland favourites for you to try at home.

This hearty side of buttery mashed potatoes flavoured with chopped spring onions is one of Northern Ireland’s most popular dishes — and it’s not hard to see why

What you'll need

1kg Maris Piper potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

50ml semi-skimmed milk

25g unsalted butter

1 bunch spring onions, finely chopped

Serves 6

Place the potatoes in a large pan of cold water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 12–15 minutes, until tender.

Drain the potatoes well and return to the pan for 30 seconds to dry out, then mash with the milk and butter until smooth and fluffy.

Stir the spring onions through the mash, season with freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.
