Sausages. Do you prefer pork or chicken? I use chicken a lot just because they are lighter and there are all the spiced and fancied up varieties. I don’t even know what variety I used with this recipe, but looking back on it, I wish it would have been pork. Sometimes you need that pork fat goodness. Don’t get me wrong, this was good, but I think a little more fat would have been just right. Also, cornichons?? I just cut up some dill pickles, which I have a zillion of because I bought a big warehouse size jar full of, simply because I wanted the jar to do some fermenting in. So, expect lots of pickles showing up on plates here at Sidewalk Shoes in the future!
Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and add enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil and add 2 teaspoons salt. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, 15 to 18 minutes; drain.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausages and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes.
In a large bowl, whisk together the cornichon brine, mustard, the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add the potatoes, cornichons, onion, and parsley and mix, mashing gently. Cut the sausages into large pieces and serve with the potatoes.
