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.

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.
