How to cook
Wash the potatoes and put them in a pot over high heat with just enough water to cover them.
Simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the largest potato bursts evenly when you crush it with a wooden spoon. It's fine if the water reduces, but add a little water if the bottom of the pot begins to dry out or turn to a sludge.
Clean and slice the scallions.
How to Slice Green Onions
Maybe it's a little weird, but scallions are my favorite thing to slice. And this is a great practice task if you're just learning to cook. They look so cool when they're done neatly, and they add a lot of color and flavor to a dish. You do need to have a sharp knife because they're delicate, and a dull knife will do more smashing than slicing.
Crush the cooked potatoes with a wooden spoon or a potato masher.
Stir in the cream.
Add the butter and stir it into the crushed potatoes.
Season as needed with salt and pepper.
Stir in the sliced scallions.
