Sauerkraut with Smoked Sausage - Zuurkool met Rookworst

Sauerkraut is a popular ingredient in Dutch cooking

  • about 2 kg potatoes (choose a crumbly potato that mashes well)
  • 1 packet of sauerkraut
  • 1 smoked sausage
  • 1 packet of cubed bacon
  • optional: bananas or pineapple

Boil potatoes and sauerkraut in different pots. They both take about the same cooking time. Put the sausage in with the potatoes, it only needs re-heating for about 10 minutes. Fry bacon in saucepan, try using the fat to make a nice gravy.

Mash potatoes and mix in a little margarine and milk to make a smooth mixture. Mix through the sauerkraut and fried bacon cubes. Slice sausage to put on top.

Tip: for an oriental touch add mashed bananas or pieces of pineapple before serving.
