Dutch Croquetten

Rating: 3.7 stars
This yummy Dutch snack is sure to please! Seasoned veal dumplings are breaded and then fried. Replace ground veal with lean beef, chicken, or stuff with spiced Gouda!

Dutch Potato Salad (Huzaren Salade)

Rating: 4.6 stars
This is a really basic, simple, and easy-to-make traditional potato salad from Holland. Great recipe to finish up corned beef and potato leftovers! It's hearty and savory with a zesty sweet tang to it. Normally served for parties but can be served as a side dish for lunch or appetizer. Serve with fresh white or brown bread rolls.

This recipe has become a cherished family favorite, and it all began in 1965 with my older brother's 2nd grade teacher sharing it with our mother. Melt-in-your-mouth good! At holiday time, add festive sprinkles on top while chocolate is still soft. Enjoy!

The crunchy oat topping adds an extra dimension to this delicious apple pie. Try using Golden Delicious, Jonagold, or Granny Smith apples for this pie.

Dutch stroopwafels (translation: molasseswaffles) Foreign people love them, so I translated this Dutch recipe to English.

Poffertjes (Dutch Mini Pancakes)

An easy, no-yeast recipe for Dutch pancakes, which are called "poffertjes" in the Netherlands. They are traditionally made in a poffertjes pan which has indents, but you can use a large frying pan and scoop a small tablespoon of batter per poffertje into the pan. Serve the poffertjes warm with a knob of butter and powdered sugar.

Dutch Leek Casserole

This is a dish my mum used to make at home, and has no added butter or oil. It's a complete meal for those cold winter nights, and best eaten straight from the oven. The chili gives extra zing to the dish.
