Recipe by spoiltbratt

Wonderful Dutch winter dish with a slight deviation from the traditional.. we substitute rutabaga for half the carrots, this makes for a slightly sweeter version.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dice onions, celery and carrots. Peel and quarter potatoes. Peel and cut rutabaga into strips resembling french fries.
  2. Place all veggies into a large pot with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, then simmer covered for 20-25 minutes til fork tender. Place rookworst on top of veggies in the last 5 mins of cooking, keep an eye on them so the casings dont split.
  3. While veggies are cooking, fry cubed spek til not quite crisp.
  4. Remove rookworst and spek to a warmed dish and cover.
  5. Drain veggies thoroughly. Add salt, bacon fat and sour cream. Mash to desired consistency. (We prefer ours a little bit lumpy).
  6. Serve hot with plain yellow mustard on the side.
