Potato Sausage

I was at IKEA in their little grocery section, when I saw they had sausage called Potatis Korv or Potato Sausage.  I have never had potato sausage.  It was a long, 2 inch thick sausage link.

I was intrigued by this sausage and wanted to cook it the traditional way.  There were several sites that say how to make it and maybe one day I will try making it but I wanted to know how the Swedes cook potato sausage.  When making it they suggest placing it in a pan and put enough water to just cover and cook that way.  This way was suggested for fresh sausage and a what to do before freezing.  This was already frozen, so it seems that just pan frying was the method to use and then to serve it with mashed potatoes, which was mentioned several times as the side for this dish.  As you can see, that is exactly what I did for our lunch.

It was unique for link sausage.  Its texture is similar to scrapple but with a slight Christmas spicy flavor. This may be because this sausage seems to be a favorite at Christmas time.  The family enjoyed it, so, I will definitely have this again!
