    16 ounces Irish Sausage or Sweet Sausage (removed from casings)

    Press the Potatoes through a ricer. Whisk in about 1 cup of Olive Oil. Transfer to a piping bag.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Don’t let the carrots cook too long; they should retain their sweetness.
    2. Use a piping bag to put the mashed potato on top of the pie filling.
