  3. Remove the sausage meat from the casings.
  4. Put all the ingredients for the stuffing in a food processor. Season with salt and pepper. Pulse a few seconds to mix all the ingredients.
  5. Lightly oil and season the inside of the potatoes. Stuff the potatoes and place them on the bed of carrots and onions. Place cut slice on each potato, oil and salt lightly, then sprinkle with chopped herbs. Pour the stock into the dish.
  6. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes in preheated oven at 190 ° C (375 ° F). Uncover and continue cooking one hour or until the potatoes are tender. Baste the potatoes a few times during the cooking process and add stock if needed.
