What you'll need

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 precooked chicken sausages
  • 1 batch creamy mashed potatoes, hot (see recipe here)
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped (optional)

Helpful Tip:

For best results, serve this dish hot. If you want to make the bite-sized version a little easier to grab, stack the sausage and potato on a cracker that's slightly larger than the sausage.


Bite Size Directions:

Once the sausages are heated through, remove them from the pan and slice into 1/2-inch rounds.

Use a spoon to scoop about 1 tbsp worth of the mashed potatoes onto each round. Sprinkle each top with a little parsley.

Set the rounds out on a serving platter.

How to make it

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the chicken sausages and cook until heated throughout (about 7-8 minutes, total). Remove the sausages from the pan.
  3. Place a scoop of mashed potatoes on each plate. Top with two sausages. If desired, sprinkle with parsley. Serve immediately.
