Potato Sausage

Potato Sausage

Forget the usual sausage fare from time to time and treat yourself to this hearty potato sausage dish instead.


1-1/2 pounds all purpose potatoes, peeled an sliced
2 large yellow onions, finely chopped
2 medium-size tart apples, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound  ground veal
1 pound  ground pork
2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
1-1/2 tablespoons prepared mustard
4 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons black peppermint
1-1/2 teaspoons ground sage
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1-1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil over moderate heat and cook the potatoes until tender – about 20 minutes. Let cool, then mash the potatoes until smooth; set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over moderate heat, then add the onions, apple, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until soft - 15 to 20 minutes.

Combine the remaining ingredients except the vegetable oil in a large mixing bowl. Add the mashed potatoes and the onion mixture; mix well. Using a pastry bag, stuff the mixture into casing sto form link sausages. Or add 3 eggs to the mixture and form into 2 x 3-inch patties.

To cook, warm the vegetable oil in a large skillet over moderate heat. Add the sausage and cook until lightly browned and cooked through – about 15 minutes for link sausage, 4 minutes on each side for the patties. Add more oil if necessary. Will keep 3 months at 0 degrees (thaw before cooking).
