Swedish (Potato) Sausage
By Patti Indre pindre
This is a tradtional Swedish sausage recipe that has been handed down from my parants, and their parants and from Sweden around the turn of the 1900 century. Since they have both passed, I have taken up the tradition of making it for our Christmas holiday dinners. I also make enough to give as Christmas gifts.
Grind up the onions and the potatoes together in the grinder, using a large container to hold it while performing the next step.
Place the sausage in a dutch oven or large pan, bring to a boil and boil for 45 minutes.
Serve with pickled beets and lingonberries!

Patti, my grandmother used to make this for the town's butcher. I have her recipe, but it makes 100 lbs. so this recipe is perfect for my needs, thank you. I no longer live in Minn so I only have potato sausage when I go home.

Thank you Marge! I'm going to be making it soon for the holidays! For my friends who have everything that they want, I give them some of this sausage for a meal. It's really a nice gift, who doesn't eat? I hope that you enjoy it!

This is the recipe our parents used, except we have always taken the skins off of the potatoes. We tweaked it about 20 yrs. and now leave out the pork, double the hamburger and added more potatoes and pepper. We just made a double batch.....21 rings this morning and sealed it up and have it in our freezer for the holidays.
