Crispy sausage hearts with spicy Jalapeño-sauce in a mashed potatoesheartframe
It takes about 20-30 minutes to prepare - depending on your cooking skills
there`s a shortcut: use instant mashed potatoes ;o)
Step 1: Ingredients and Kitchen Tools
For the crispy sausage hearts:
Use a finely ground pork sausage like swedish "Falukorv", american "bologna", german "Lyoner"
The hot and spicy sauce:
1 red onion
2-3 tablespoons pickled Jalapeño peppers (the more the hotter)
100ml / 3,5 fl oz heavy cream
150ml / 5 fl oz milk
For the potato-mash:
5 large potatos
butter and salt
or choose the fast and lazy way - use instant mashed potatoes
kitchen tools needed:
heart- shaped cookie cutter
optional but useful: pastry bag
Step 2: Prepare the Hearts
If you choose to make your own mashed potatoes, now is the time to peel, and cook the potatoes
- cut the sausage in 1,5 cm / 0,6in thick slices
- cut out hearts with the cookie cutter
- then cut a cross-pattern with your knife - only about 5mm / 0,2 in deep
- optional: fry the outer "left over" hearts, or chop them and add to the sauce
if unclear: the pictures show pretty good, what to do ;)
Step 3: The Hot Sauce
chop the onion -stir fry until onion gets translucent
add the chopped Jalapeño peppers.
add the cream and milk
add about 30ml / 1 fl oz of the "Jalapeño-water" from the can
add about 1 teaspoon curry-powder
cook on low heat
Step 4: Mashed Potatoes and Fryed Hearts
start to fry the hearts
mash the cooked potatoes and mix with milk, salt and butter
fill the mashed potatoes into a pastry bag and pipe a heartframe on the plates
if you don`t have a pastry bag - just spread the mash in a heartshape on the plates.
fill the "left over" hearts with mashed potatoes - spread with a knife from the backside and simply flip it.
Step 5: Dress and Serve
fill the heartframe with the sauce
add the crispy hearts and some Jalapeño pepper slices
enjoy and spread love!
