Today we cook one of the favorite national dishes – baked potato with homemade sausage. You will definitely like this Ukrainian dish. The flavour of the pork sausage in combination with savory and crispy potato will not leave you indifferent.


  • 1,5 kg (3,31 lb) pork
  • 100 g (0,22 lb) salo (lard)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 30 g (0,07 lb) salt
  • 30 g (0,07 lb) ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp starch
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1,5 kg (3,31 lb) potato
  • herbs – to taste


Chop meat and dice salo. Peel cloves of garlic and squeeze them. Toss all the ingredients together. Then add salt, sugar, starch and 15 g of black pepper. Mix everything properly.

Wash and peel casings. Stuff them with the prepared mixture and tie the casings. Then place the sausages on a plate and leave for 30-60 minutes. Make little holes in the casings by the help of a needle in order to let the air pass, also to prevent the breaking of the casings during a baking process.

Then place the sausages in a preheated oven and bake them at 200°C (392°F) for 30 minutes. Next peel and slice potatoes. Combine the potato with pepper and herbs and transfer it to the baking sheet and continue to cook for 20-30 minutes until sausages are golden brown and potato is crispy.

Serve the dish with pickled cabbage or cucumbers.

Enjoy your meal!
