Hutspot (Orange Mashed Potatoes and Sausage Dinner)

Recipe by GinaJohnson
READY IN: 23mins


  • 8
    ounces carrots, peeled and cut up into small chunks
  • 5
    medium potatoes, peeled and cut into medium chunks
  • 12
    medium onion, finely chopped
  • 16
    ounces sausage or 16 ounces kielbasa
  • 2
    teaspoons salt
  • 18
    teaspoon pepper (optional)
  • 4
    tablespoons butter (optional)
  • 4
    tablespoons hot cream (optional)


  • Place the carrots in the bottom of a 3 quart pan with about 2 cups of water and put on high to boil.
  • Let cook for about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the potatoes and onion.
  • Put the sausage on top. (It will give the veggies some great flavor!).
  • Cover. Let cook over medium heat for about 10 min until the vegetables are tender and easy to mash.
  • Remove the sausage to a plate to keep warm.
  • Drain the vegetables, reserving at least 1/2 c of the water if you prefer to use water to cream or milk.
  • Put through a potato ricer or use a potato masher to mash all the vegetables together. Use the back of a spoon to smoosh it all together with the remaining ingredients. You CAN use a mixer for this, but you risk the vegetables becoming gummy if you over-mix. Go for power at your own risk!
  • Season to taste. Serve with a salad and dinner is ready!
