Potatoes have longed played a role in Ireland's history, and there is an abundance of potato dishes in the country's cuisine. In addition to boiled potatoes and colcannon, traditional Irish dishes include champ, a mashed potato with scallions, and farl, a potato cake or bread, and boxty, a potato pancake often filled with vegetables and meat.
Peel and cube potatoes, place in saucepan, cover with water. Bring to a boil, add salt. Simmer 15 minutes until potatoes are tender. Drain. Cook peas in 1 tablespoon butter. Transfer to blender and add milk and blend until smooth. Mash potatoes. Add remaining butter and blend with pea mixture. Add pepper to taste.
