Lola’s Kitchen is a feature on Lola’s Reviews where I talk about all things related to food, cooking and baking. These posts can be recipe posts, tens list posts about food or recipes or more discussion type posts about food. I love cooking and spend some time in the kitchen almost every day, so I wanted to give it a place on my blog as well. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Designs.

I like mashed potato recipes and when I spotted this recipe in a magazine I knew I had to give it a try. This one turned out great with two kinds of potatoes the mash has a very rich taste and the leek and bratwurst just add to it. I used vegetarian bratwurst for me, but you can use any type of bratwurst or sausage for this one. It’s a relatively simple dish to make that only requires a few ingredients, which is an added bonus. This is a stamppot dish which is the term we use in the Netherlands for mashed potatoes with vegetables.

This recipe is based on Albert Heijn’s Preistammpot met Zoerte Aardappel Amsterdamse Ui and Varkensbraadworst recipe

Method

  1. First peel both types of potatoes and slice them in smaller pieces. Now boil them both for about 20 minutes in a large pan.
  2. In the meantime start on the leek. Cut off the bottom, then slice it lengthwise, turn it a quarter of the way and make another lengthwise cut, so that you get half slices. Cut the four leeks and then wash them well.
  3. Heat some oil in a pan or wok and then bake the leek for about 10 minutes, till they are nice and soft.
  4. In the meantime start baking your bratwurst or sausage depending on how long yours need to bake.
  5. When the potatoes are done cooking finely mash them to a smooth puree using a potato masher. Add the butter and milk. And add salt, black pepper and nutmeg to taste.
  6. Now add the leek to the potatoes mash and stir well. Serve with the bratwurst or sausage and enjoy.

    • Adding fresh minced garlic to mashed potatoes is a good idea too. I really like the leek in this one and the combination of both normal and sweet potatoes is great.

    • It’s a common thing here in the Netherlands, we call it stamppot and it’s especially popular in the winter months. The most common varieties are to add kale, sauerkraut or carrot to the mashed potatoes. I think it’s a great way to add a bit of variety of mashed potatoes dishes 🙂

    • I usually buy these vegetarian bratwurst they sell here to add to this dish. I haven’t tried making seitan myself yet. I hope you like this if you give it a try :).
