If you don't have Morteau sausage, you can use another type of smoked sausage or plain sausagemeat, though it won't be quite as good.

Similarly, if you don't have cancoillote, use a creamy textured cheese, such as Le Mont d'Or, instead.
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film. Reheats very well.
Home made.
