Potato and Sausage Cake… to served with your lovely festive dinner!

Got a confession to make, I couldn’t resist not to do this before hand for my brother’s birthday three course dinner that I set up at my house. What I did is as a starter is my now famous Spaghetti with Coffee sauce (this recipe featured in Food Buzz Top 9 Recipes) and then as a main course I served this delicious Potato and Sausage Cake with a nice Pan-fried Veal and mixed vegetables. Potato & Sausage Cake

I have always wanted to create something different with mashed potatoes to serve, and I thought of how I can invent this Potato and Sausage Cake recipe for simple cut it into wedges exactly like a normal cake… It worked :). The thing sliced potatoes on the top covers the mash like a crust which is the best part (in my honest opinion). I used Maltese sausage with the mash but you can use chorizo or other kind of sausages that have a great stuffing. Well… it time for you to try this one out. I know it tastes good but… you’ll never know until you’ve tried it 🙂

Here’s the recipe for you…

Potato and Sausage Cake


  • 3-4 large potatoes, peeled (save some for the top, thin sliced)
  • 1 (150g) maltese sausage (skin removed, only meat)
  • 2-3 eggs, beaten
  • 100g parmessan cheese (optional)
  • 2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch thyme 
  • salt & pepper

Method for the Potato and Sausage Cake

– Start off by boiling the peeled potatoes (chop them roughly) in a deep pot containing salted water. (Do Not Forget to Slice around 20 thin slices for the top)


– In a small bowl beat the eggs together and add half of the chopped parsley


– Once the potatoes are boiled and ready to be mashed, sieve them from the access water and place them back in the pot and put in a medium heat to remove
the access water from the potatoes


– Then mash the potato using a masher or potato ricer while it’s hot


– Add to the mashed potatoes the maltese sausages, beaten eggs, parmessan cheese, grated nutmeg, pinch of thyme, salt and pepper to taste


– Then brush a 12 inch round cake tin or fluted tart tin with olive oil and place the Potato and Sausage Cake mixture


– Flatten with a spatula and cover the top with the thin sliced potato


– Finally add the rest of the parsley, a pinch of thyme and pinch of grated nutmeg


– Bake in a pre-heated oven for 30 mins in 190°C


– Serve hot and into slices
