Locally known as ‘Stekt Prinskorv,’ Pan Fried Prinskorv is a dish that’s always part of Sweden’s Christmas buffet. It doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy it all year round, though!
These fried small sausages are perfect when you want a quick and delicious meal — but still light enough to have some space for a kanelbulle (Swedish cinnamon roll) after. 😉
Ready in a matter of minutes, you can eat it on its own or enjoy it with some salad on the side.
Nah, I just grab some slices of bread — and I’m a happy camper. 🙂

- Prinskorv – mild and small Swedish sausage similar to cocktail wieners.
- Oil – you can use olive oil or any other frying oil, but there is no need to use a lot since you only need it for sauteing/pan frying.
Start preparing the prinskorv by slicing a cross on both ends of each sausage.
Place a medium-sized or large skillet on medium-high heat, then add oil.
Once the oil is ready, place the small sausages into the pan.
Cook and mix for six to eight minutes — or until the ends are sticking out.
Transfer your pan of fried prinskorv to serving plates and garnish with some fresh parsley, if preferred.
- Keep mixing the sausages like you’re sauteing them instead of turning them one by one.
- If you want to use less oil, cooking them in the oven is a great option.
- Butter. Melted butter is an excellent alternative to oil for frying small Swedish sausages.
- Onion. Saute some thinly sliced onions, and once they soften, add the sausages.
- Salt & pepper. You can use these to season the fried prinskorv while cooking.
- Vienna sausage. Since prinskorv is a type of Vienna sausage, using a similar variety should be fine.
