Recipe - Exotic Falun Sausage (Falukorv) bake

You won't find the IKEA food court in any of the Swedish IKEA's but for us ex-pats they are quite a nice feature.

Walking around in the Milton Keynes branch the other day I realised that quite a lot of people don't really know what they're buying, or what to do with it.

I guess that lots of people have bought the strange sausage, (Falun sausage/falukorv) with the flower decorated casing and ended up not having a clue how to cook it.

I've previously posted a couple of recipes for what to cook with Falun sausage/Falukorv but here's another one. I'll soon follow up with some more since I did sort of buy a couple of them during my visit. ;)

Ingredients (serves 4)
500-600g Falun sausage, cut into batons
1 large yellow onion, diced
2 red peppers, diced
2 tbsp butter
2 ripe bananas, sliced
150g grated cheese
Freshly ground black pepper
Curry powder
250 ml double cream

Preheat the oven to 200c.

Fry the onion in the butter until it starts to soften. Put the onion in the bottom of a ovensafe dish. Then fry the pepper until that starts to soften too, and add on top of the onion.

Put the sausages on top of the vegetables, follow with the banana slices and finally the cheese.

Season with salt and pepper, add a generous dusting of curry powder and pour the cream on top.

Bake in the middle of the oven for about 30 - 40 minutes or until nicely browned.

Serve with rice and a green salad.



  1. Sausages & Bananas? That sounds gross, I've got to try it.

    Been lurking for a while & I'd thought I'd say - great blog, some good ideas on what to do with those left overs.

  2. Richard,

    Just don't go using any kind of sausage now! ;) It's got to be Falun sausage (or the rather similar German ones you can get from Lidl). I would not use 'normal' sausages for this.

    Banana, fried sandwich steak and curry powder works really well on pizzas though.

    Glad to know that you like the blog and that you're out there lurking. Feel free to comment as much as you want, getting feedback makes it more worthwhile.
