Smoky sausage and mash


Smoky sausage and mash
This is sausage and mash with a smoky Gallic twist: the smoked sausage (Morteau sausage here) is cooked in with the potatoes, so that they take on its smoky flavour. The potatoes are turned into a French-style purée – softer and richer than British mash.

Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 20 min.

Peel 1 kg potatoes, then cut into chunks and rinse.

Stage 2 - 1 min.
Smoky sausage and mash
Prick 1 Morteau sausage all over with a fork or pointed knife.

Stage 3 - 2 min.
Smoky sausage and mash
Put the potatoes into a large saucepan with a little salt. Lay the sausage on top and add water to cover.

Stage 4 - 40 min.
Smoky sausage and mash
Cook covered for 30 to 40 minutes until the potatoes are soft.

Stage 5 - 3 min.
Smoky sausage and mash
Take the sausage out of the pan, then drain the potatoes.

Keep the cooking water to use again.

Stage 6 - 15 min.
Smoky sausage and mash
Purée the potatoes with a vegetable mill back into the same pan. If it seems too hard, pour a little of the cooking water into the mill.

Stage 7 - 2 min.
Smoky sausage and mash
When all the potatoes are puréed, put back on low heat, then add 100 g butter and 100 g liquid cream.

Stage 8 - 2 min.
Smoky sausage and mash
Mix thoroughly to make the purée nice and smooth, then salt and pepper.

Cover and keep hot.

Stage 9 - 2 min.

Put in a frying pan, without any added fat, and fry on both sides.

Stage 11

Remarks
This recipe was devised with Morteau sausage in mind, but other types of smoked sausage will work fine.

Natives of the Franche-Comté region, in France, might raise their eyebrows at stage 2: just for once, we'll prick the sausage (which they wouldn't normally do), so that the smoky flavour can spread into the potatoes during cooking.

No need to let all that smoky flavour go to waste: you can use the cooking water left for boiling pasta or rice, for example.
Keeping
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
