  • 2 1/2 Pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 Teaspoons kosher salt, plus additional to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon cooking oil, such as Grapeseed Oil
  • 7 Tablespoons butter or plant based butter, divided
  • 2 yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons All purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 Cups Vegetable stock or broth
  • 1 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce

5 steps
  1. Boil the Potatoes

    Add the potatoes to a large pot and fill with cold water to cover. Add 2 teaspoons of salt, then bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until very tender, 15-20 minutes.

  2. Cook the Impossible Sausage Links

    Preheat a skillet to medium heat. Add cooking oil to the pan. Cook links for about 10-12 minutes turning approximately every 2 minutes, to brown on all sides. Remove from the pan.

  3. Make the gravy

    Using the same pan used for the links add the onions, and cook stirring often about 10 minutes or until the onions are soft and golden. Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter into the onions, and stir in flour until well incorporated. Stir in vegetable stock slowly and cook until mixture begins to thicken, about 5-7 minutes. Stir in soy sauce and red wine vinegar, and then season to taste with salt and pepper. Add sausages back to pan, and turn heat very low to keep warm while mashing the potatoes, taking care to stir occasionally.

  4. Mash the Potatoes

    Drain the potatoes. Add the 4 remaining tablespoons butter and 3/4 cup heavy cream (or substitute cream with vegetable stock) to the empty pot, and melt the butter and warm the cream over low heat. Add the potatoes back to the pot, and mash with the butter and cream. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  5. Serve and Enjoy!

    Serve the Impossible Sausage Links over mashed potatoes with skillet gravy and your choice of steamed or sautéed veggie, and top with chopped fresh parsley.
