If you choose to make your own mashed potatoes, now is the time to peel, and cook the potatoes

meanwhile you:

  • cut the sausage in 1,5 cm / 0,6in thick slices
  • cut out hearts with the cookie cutter
  • then cut a cross-pattern with your knife - only about 5mm / 0,2 in deep
  • optional: fry the outer "left over" hearts, or chop them and add to the sauce

    if unclear: the pictures show pretty good, what to do ;)

    Step 3: The hot sauce

    add about 1 teaspoon curry-powder

    start to fry the hearts

    mash the cooked potatoes and mix with milk, salt and butter

    fill the mashed potatoes into a pastry bag and pipe a heartframe on the plates

    if you don`t have a pastry bag - just spread the mash in a heartshape on the plates.

    Optional:

    fill the "left over" hearts with mashed potatoes - spread with a knife from the backside and simply flip it.


    Step 5: Dress and serve
