Kartoffelwurst mit Kartoffel Kochen (Potato Sausage 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.
