Dutch “Hutspot” (potato carrot mash)


Preparation 50 minutes
  • Peel the potatoes and cut them in pieces of about the same size.
  • Peel the carrots and cut them in large chunks.
  • Peel and chop the onions.
  • Rinse the potato and carrot chunks, and put them together with the chopped onions in a large pan (you should have at least a couple of cm of room for boiling and mashing).
  • Add enough water to the pan to boil the ingredients.
  • Add 1 some salt, cover the pan but allow the steam to escape and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Reduce to medium heat and continue boiling for20 minutes until the potatoes are soft.
  • Place the “rookworst” in its plastic wrapper in the pan with carrot potato mix for the last 10 minutes.
  • Drain and add the butter and milk.
  • Mash the carrot potato mixture with a potato masher. If you like some carrot chunks, don’t mash too much.
  • Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  • Serve the “Hutspot” with the heated “Rookworst”. If you don’t like the “Rookworst”, you can serve the “Hutspot” wit a meatball.


Serve with gravy and “eet smakelijk”!
