  • 1 & 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 kg potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced finely
  • 5 ounces smoked pork, diced (about 1/2 cup, heaping)
  • 5 ounces ham, diced (about 1/2 cup, heaping)
  • 10 ounces sausage, diced (about 300 grams)
  • salt and pepper, for seasoning
  • parsley, chopped roughly for garnish (optional)


  • Start preparing your pyttipanna by placing a medium or large skillet over medium-high heat, then add oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the diced potatoes.
  • Cook until the potatoes are halfway done.
  • Add the onions, salt, and pepper.
  • Adjust the heat to medium and cook for about 4 minutes or until the onions have softened.
  • Add the smoked pork, ham, and sausage.
  • Cook until the potatoes are ready, simultaneously checking and adjusting the seasoning during this time.
  • Take the pan off the heat and transfer pyttipanna into plates.
  • Serve with some pickled beets and fried egg.



  • Cook's Tip #1:  Chop all the meat in identical sizes and not too small compared to the diced potatoes.
  • Cook's Tip #2:  When seasoning your pyttipanna, do not add too much salt right away.  Remember that the smoked pork, ham, and sausage would already be on the salty side.
