A community recipe by

A traditional Dutch dish, with potatoes and white cabbage served with a good chunky smoked sausage. Best served on cold winter days. The flavour really comes out if you reheat it a day after in a frying pan with a small knob of butter. I hope you enjoy this dish, I absolutely love it, I have been raised on this meal! However I know some that are not keen on it but give it a go!


Serves: 4

  • maris piper potatoes
  • 1 sauerkraut (jar of, available in most supermarkets - also known as Zuurkool)
  • smoked sausage (any kind but I prefer the big, round kind)
  • butter
  • milk
  • salt
  • pepper

  • Boil potatoes with pinch of salt and pepper for however long it takes.
  • Simmer zuurkool for 10 minutes, if not enough juice in jar then add some water, enough to cover most of it.
  • When potatoes ready make a yummy mash with butter and milk until nice and creamy.
  • Then add the zuurkool and flavour. Go easy on the salt as zuurkool can be salty on its own.
  • Serve with sausage and a knob of butter melting on the zuurkool. Enjoy!
