Place potato sausage in a large skillet. Fill the skillet with just enough water to cover the sausage. Overfilling will increase the time it takes for the sausage to boil.

Bring potato sausage to a boil over medium-high heat.

Turn the heat to low and cover. Simmer for approximately 25 to 30 minutes.

Remove sausage from water and place in a covered dish. Let the potato sausage sit for 5 minutes before cutting.

Cut each link into 3 serving size pieces. The casing can be left on the sausage when served, but should be removed prior to eating.

Serve with boiled vegetables and mashed potatoes or Norwegian potato lefsa (a potato pastry).

Tips & Warnings

  • Be picky when it comes to selecting your potato sausage. The color should be grayish with some speckling. If the sausage looks somewhat yellow, it will have more of a mustard taste when you cook it.
  • Some people say potato sausage is an acquired taste, so make sure you give it a few chances before you decide if it's for you.
  • Make sure you don't overcook your potato sausage, as this will cause it to get tough and chewy.
