This is a very old potato recipe, sometimes called "Thump". It is particularly enjoyed by children.

Large potatoes - 8
Spring onions - 10
Milk - 150 ml
Melted butter - 4 tbsp
Salt and pepper to taste


  • Boil the potatoes in salted water. Drain well and dry out by putting a folded cloth over the pan and heating the potatoes gently for a few minutes. Mash the potatoes.
  • Chop the green and white parts of the onions finely and pour boiling water over them.
  • Drain well and add to the milk.
  • Bring milk to the boil and pour onto mashed potatoes.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper and beat until light and fluffy.
  • Serve in individual soup plates in moulds. Scoop out the centre of each mould and pour in melted butter.
