Pigs in Idaho Potato Blankets

Pigs in Idaho Potato Blankets

Yield: 6 Servings


* 3 cups prepared mashed Idaho Potatoes (made from Idaho potato flakes
or from fresh potatoes)
* 6 links (about 18 ounces) cooked knockwurst sausage
* 1/2 cup sauerkraut
* mustard to taste
* breadcrumbs (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Cover a clean work surface with an 8-inch
long piece of waxed paper. Pat 1/2 cup mashed potato into a 4 X 6-inch
rectangle on top of the waxed paper. Place one knockwurst across the
4-inch side of the potato rectangle so that the ends hang over the
edge of the potatoes.
2. Using a spoon, place 1 tablespoon sauerkraut along the knockwurst.
Drizzle mustard along the knockwurst, to taste.
3. Gently pick up the waxed paper, using it to help roll the potato
over the knockwurst to enclose it completely in potatoes. Gently
transfer to a baking sheet and pat the seam closed. Sprinkle with
breadcrumbs, if desired. Bake for 20 minutes or until heated through.
