Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: Dutch
Keyword: bacon, russet potatoes, sauerkraut
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 3.3 lb floury potatoes such as russet potatoes
  • 3/4 lb lean unsmoked cured bacon /zuurkoolspek
  • 1 3/4 lb sauerkraut
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup celery leaf selderieblad, see NOTES, to taste

Instructions

  • Peel the potatoes and cut into similarly sized pieces for even cooking.
  • In a large soup pot, boil the potatoes for 20 minutes in salted water.
  • Fry the bacon in a frying pan, until just crispy. Drain on kitchen paper.
  • Add the sauerkraut to the bacon fat and allow to warm through.
  • Warm milk in a small saucepan.
  • Drain, shake and dry the potatoes with kitchen towels before mashing with a potato masher or ricer. Working quickly, add the boiled milk and butter. Season to taste.
  • Mix the sauerkraut through the mashed potato. Crumble the bacon and finely chopped celery leaves over the dish, mix again, and serve hot.

Notes

Celery leaf is commonly used as a herb in Holland (it is called selderieblad and is available in the herb section of most supermarkets). If it’s hard to find where you live, simply buy a bunch of stick celery and use the tender interior leaves. It won’t be quite as green, but it will taste pretty much the same.
Zuurkoolspek is a type of bacon made from pork belly that has been cured in a salt brine. If you can’t find it, ask your butcher to recommend something similar.
