Hi, I want to make potato sausage in a couple weeks and have a 10 lb bag of potatoes. With them being more expensive now, and they need to be used soon, I thought maybe I could dice some up and give them a partial fry and freeze, then grinding them when I'm ready to make the sausage. For some reason I thought I'd have more control on how much they are cooked if I fry them briefly vs boiling. Think that would work out okay? Thanks

Sure, should work fine. Watch this potato sausage vid. Eric roasted them, but pan fry would work...don't use much oil!

The recipe I'm following is my mom and dads. They use to do the potatoes raw. I'm worried my potatoes will turn dark before I get them into the casings. I'm also considering throwing in a little bit of carrot!

Thanks for the likes Lucky
mine did not seem to turn darker , and for those ones I used a hand grinder and stuffed by hand, as that is how the recipe I had , it was done.
And I was not that fast at it than either
I really like the potato sausage .
Would love to try your Mom and Dad's if you wish to share . But understand if not.
And carrots would be a nice addition

I want to use my dads old hand grinder to stuff as well! I will look for the recipe and give it to you as soon as I have a few minutes.....He also added venison to some. My moms recipe is just with potatoes and pork.

Good luck with your project, sounds like your following in the right footsteps!

I appreciate that , thank you. No rush. When ever you get the time.
Your moms sounds good, but like you said maybe some carrots, and i had fine chopped bacon in mine

Show us when you have it done , good luck

My family has been making Swedish Potato Sausage for decades. I have only ever ground the potatoes and onions through the grinder before mixing with the meat. You may have to strain some of the liquid off the potato before adding to the meat. I also only use salt and black pepper for seasoning. Once stuffed, we cook the sausages then wrap and freeze. Delicious.
