This recipe is an easy one-pot meal and we all love those, right? Directly translated from Danish it’s called a Swedish sausage dish, but that doesn’t sound all that good in English. So we’ve decided to call it Potato and sausage stew. We also have no idea why this dish should be Swedish and all in all Potato and sausage stew is a more honest name.
One-pot potato and sausage stew
800g boiled potatoes (can be leftovers)
8 sausages (spicy ones, Frankfurters, chicken, vegetarian, etc)
1 medium onion
70g of tomato puré
2 dl milk
½ dl cream
Salt and pepper
Oil or butter for frying
Chop the onions and slice the sausages and fry them in a pot along with the paprika for a few minutes. We really like smoked paprika for dishes like this, because it tastes a little like smoked bacon. And we do love smoked bacon!
Add milk, cream, and tomato puré and mix well. Cut the potatoes into smaller pieces if needed (not too small or they will become a mash) and add them to the pot. You can use any type of potato you like. In the pictures for this recipe we even tried switching half of the regular white potatoes with sweet potatoes and it tasted great.
Stir gently while adding salt and pepper. Let cook on low heat for 10 minutes and the stew is ready to serve. The potatoes should mash a little into the tomato sauce but still have a white potato center.
The picture doesn’t do this one-pot meal any justice, but it’s a little hard to make a delicious stew look as good as it tastes. We promise you that it’s yummy!
