How to Cook Swedish Potato Sausage


  • 4 pounds peeled potatoes coarsely ground
  • 2 pounds ground pork cut into pieces
  • 2 pounds ground beef cut into pieces
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 medium peeled and quartered yellow onions
  • 2 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1 ½ to 2 ½ tbsp. salt
  • beef casings for stuffing


  • Coarsely grind the beef, potatoes, and pork in a meat grinder. If you are grinding in a food processor, cut it into 1-inch pieces first.
  • Soak the potatoes in the water with ascorbic acid; it will prevent blackening.
  • Grind the onions the same way.
  • Now, drain the potatoes well and combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix them well.
  • After that, stuff casings loosely and cut in appropriate lengths, and tie with a string.
  • Pierce the casings in several places, then put your sausages into a large pot and fill the pot with just enough cold water to cover the sausage.
  • Let the sausage simmer for 40 – 45 minutes.
  • If you want your sausage more crisp and seared, cook them for a few minutes in a frying pan with some vegetable oil after they have simmered in water.
