2 potatoes, Russet or Idaho type, or Yukon Gold (yellow) 500 g
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g

1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g

2 Italian sausages, or other types 150 g

Before you start

A food mill or a potato ricer will be very useful to purée the potatoes. A food processor cannot give the proper texture.


  1. Prepare the potatoes, leaving the skin on. Boil or steam until very tender, about 20 -25 min. Drain well and peel.
  2. Prick through the skin of the sausages in several spots using a fork. Put the sausages in a saucepan, cover them with water then bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 5 min. Take the sausages out of the water and pat them dry.
  3. Heat a sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add the sausages, then sauté until they become lightly coloured, 5 to 6 min. Turn them a few times while cooking. Set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, pour in the milk with butter and microwave on medium-high for a couple tens of seconds until hot.
  5. Pass the potatoes through a food mill, then put the purée back into the pot used to cook the potatoes. Pour in the butter-milk mixture. Add more or less milk depending on how creamy you like your mashed potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then blend well using a spatula.
  6. Serve the sausages on top of the mashed potatoes.
