A few years ago, I asked Chef Raymond Reed from Stanley and Seafort's Restaurant in Tacoma, Washington for this recipe. I should have known that asking a chef for a recipe means it makes alot! The original recipe was for 15 pounds, but I finally scaled it down a bit. Since I don't make the huge 15 pounds, I don't bother with a paddle attachment either.

steak seasoning blend
1 1/3 c
whipping cream
5 oz

3Meanwhile, melt the butter in a heavy gauged sauce pot over a medium heat. Add and blend in the whipping cream. Remove from the heat and reserve.
4With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the butter-cream liquid to incorporate.
5Add the sour cream and the steak seasoning. Whip potatoes on medium speed until mashed but some lumps remain. Do not overwhip potatoes.
6Garnish with fresh chopped chives and serve.
