  • 40 pounds Idaho potatoes, washed and peeled
  • 1 pound (4 sticks) unsalted butter 
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar 
  • 1/2 cup salt 
  • 1 quart yellow mustard 
  • 1 quart sweet relish 
  • Four 15-ounce jars sandwich spread 
  • One 28-ounce can red pimentos, drained 
  • 1 cup dried parsley
  • About 2 cups mayonnaise 


Boil the potatoes until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to dry well.

Add the potatoes to a large container. Add the butter, sugar and salt, and mash to a smooth consistency with a potato masher, being careful to incorporate all the ingredients evenly. Refrigerate for several hours, until cold.

Add the mustard, relish, sandwich spread, pimentos and parsley to the potatoes and mix well. Gradually mix in the mayonnaise, taking note of the consistency and flavor as you go -- you may need to add more or less mayonnaise than the recipe calls for, depending on personal preference.

For best results, refrigerate for several hours before serving.
