The tastiest dishes using Dutch preserved meats

Visitors to the Netherlands are often struck by the impressive selection of canned meats available in Dutch supermarkets. But how do the Dutch enjoy their favourite tinned meat products? Below are three popular recipes, each serving four hungry people.

Dutch tinned meat recipes

Broodje knakworst (Dutch hotdogs)


1 tin of Unox Knaks or Unox Spicy Knaks (Dutch sausages)
1 pack of part-baked rolls
4 tablespoons of mustard sauce


First bake the rolls according to the instructions on the packaging. Meanwhile, pour the Dutch sausages into a saucepan and warm gently on a low heat (do not boil, as they will lose their flavour). Slice open the rolls and fill each with two Dutch sausages. Finally, spoon over a tablespoon of mustard and your delicious hot lunch or typical Dutch snack is good to go!

Macaroni met Smac (macaroni with Dutch Spam)


1 pack of Honig quick cook macaroni
1 pack of Honig noodle seasoning
1 tin of Unox Smac
1 onion
150 grams of tomato puree
A splash of ketchup
2 knobs of butter


First cook the macaroni according to instructions on the packaging, dissolve the noodle seasoning in some boiling water and cut the Dutch Spam into cubes. Next finely chop the onion and fry in a little butter until it starts to caramelise. Once the pasta is ready, stir in a knob of butter, as well as the noodle spices, fried onions, diced Smac, tomato paste and ketchup. Finally, warm the macaroni on a low heat and serve with a mixed salad.

Spaghetti met gehaktballen (spaghetti with Dutch meatballs)


1 pack of Honig high fibre spaghetti
1 can of Unox meatballs
I jar of Bio+ Pasta Sauce Basil


First cook the spaghetti according to the instructions on the packaging. Meanwhile, pour the pasta sauce and tinned meatballs into separate pans and warm both on a low heat.
