Red Jacket Mashed Potatoes

Vicki Butts (lazyme)


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.
