Step 3: Add the sausage back into the pot and add in the potatoes, chicken stock, half teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Adjust the heat to medium and continue to cook for about 10 to 12 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

Step 4: Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon. Transfer into a bowl and mash. Add the mashed potatoes back to the pot.
