Total Time

This recipe comes from a swiss web site and has been posted here for play in ZWT - 7 World Tour - Switzerland. The swiss typically use Vaudoise Sauscisson (a coarse, cold-smoked sausage with a hearty taste, made exclusively from pork) The Fribourg Saucisson (prepared exclusively with pork and is smoked twice) The Boutefas is another smoked pork pork sausage (this may weigh up to 3 kg) The Sauciesse Aux Choux (made from pork and white cabbage) The Sauciesse au Foie ( pork, pork liver) The Neuchatel Saucisson (is a refined mild sausage and is made exclusively from fine pork) For our purposes I would suggest using pork sausage and smoked pork sausages.

Made for ZWT7. Nice "Eintopf", as the Swiss and Germans would call it -- everything in one pot! I halved the recipe for us 2 diners. Wasn't too sure about the "1 ounce vegetable bouillon (dry)", but just used some veg stock. The recipe is easy to make, and typical of the foods I've eaten in German-speaking countries. It's cold where I am, so it was a very appropriate dish on a chilly night. Thank you!
