Kartoffelwurst With Boiled Potatoes

Meats are often served with potatoes, so it should not be surprising that stuffing made with ground meat and potatoes will create a great sausage. Potato sausages are popular in Sweden, Germany, Poland, Spain and other countries. Kartoffelwurst can be made from raw or boiled potatoes, however the latter version is a bit milder.
