Recipe by luvinlif2k
I don't know what's better, the dish or the look you get when you say that's what you're serving. We always loved when Mom served up Pig Stomach. I have adapted this recipe from the Mennonite Cookbook. Consider the stomach to be the "delivery vehicle" and experiment with the seasonings ... follow the recipe for a traditional PA Dutch dish.

I grew up and live in PA Dutch country and this had always been my favorite meal...the one I chose every year for my birthday meal. We had a gathering and I served this recipe today. There was literally nothing left...people came back for thirds! It is an excellent recipe. To note: I used Italian sausage (gives it extra seasoning) and also drizzled 4 Tbsp of melted butter on the potato mixture prior to stuffing the stomach. I can't say enough good things about this recipe. It will be my new all-time favorite!!!
