Hollandse kabeljauwschotel (Dutch one-pot cod dish)
½ kilo of potatoes
1 jar of Hak green beans
200 grams of cod
1 teaspoon of paprika
1 can of Bonduelle crispy sweet corn
One large knob of butter
40 grams of mature Dutch cheese
2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs
Salt and pepper
First preheat your oven to 175 C. Meanwhile peel and cook the potatoes. Next, cut the fish into pieces and sprinkle with a little salt, pepper and paprika. Once cooked, slice the potatoes and then drain the green beans and corn. Now line an oven dish with butter and cover with half of the potato slices. Spoon over the green beans and corn, add in the pieces of fish and then cover with the remaining potato slices. Next grate the cheese into a small bowl and mix in the breadcrumbs. Finally, top the potatoes with the cheese and breadcrumb mix, pop into the oven, and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
Witlofstamppot met Friese nagelkaas (Endive mash with Frisian clove cheese)
First preheat your oven to 225 C. Peel the potatoes, cut into pieces and then boil in a pan of water containing a small pinch of salt. Meanwhile, rinse the endives and cut into chunks. Next melt a knob of butter in a pan and gently fry the endives. Crumble in the stock cube and then leave to simmer for approximately 20 minutes. Now stir in the crème fraiche and nutmeg, and season with salt and pepper. Once cooked, finely mash the potatoes with a potato masher, add in the endives and then spoon the mixture into an oven dish. Finally, top with grated Frisian clove cheese and a few small knobs of butter, before popping into your oven and baking until a delicious golden brown.
