Bratwurst Hotdog with Sauerkraut

Weekend food should be one of two things - either a dish which you can take your time over or something fun which gives in to your cravings. Here's our take on a hotdog made with bratwurst or boudin blanc and paired with sauerkraut. Try your local butcher to get good quality sausages.

Serves 2

4 bratwurst or boudin blanc sausages
250g sauerkraut
100g lardons
1 onion
1 apple
30g butter
2 hotdog rolls of your choice
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 glass white wine
2 tablespoon tomato ketchup
1 tablespoon mustard
salt and pepper

Finely slice the onion. Peel the apple, discard the core and cut into 1 cm cubes. Place the sauerkraut in a sieve and rinse under cold running water.

Heat a pot over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and 2 cubes butter with the onion and lardons. Fry for 5 minutes. Add the sauerkraut, apple and a glass of white wine and cook gently over a low heat, covered with a lid, for about 20 minutes.

Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil to the pan and grill the sausages for about 12 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Slice the crispy rolls lengthways in half. Toast them, cut side down, in the grill pan.

Season the sauerkraut with salt and pepper. Top the open roll halves with the sauerkraut and lay a sausage on each one. Serve with ketchup and mustard.



voor 2 personen

4 Berliner braadworstjes or boudin blanc
250gr zuurkool
100gr lardons
1 ui
1 appel
30gr cupjes boter
2 hotdog broodjes, naar keus
4 eetlepels olijfolie
1 glas witte wijn
2 eetlepels tomaten ketchup
1 eetlepel mosterd
zout en peper

Snijd de ui in dunne ringen. Schil de appel, verwijder het klokhuis en snijd in kleine blokjes van 1 cm. Doe de zuurkool in een zeef en spoel af onder koud stromend water.

Verwarm een pan op medium vuur. Voeg 2 eetlepels olijfolie en 2 cupjes boter toe samen met de ui en lardons. Bak ze 5 minuten. Voeg de zuurkool en appel toe. Voeg een glas witte wijn toe en kook zachtjes, afgedekt, op een laag vuurtje voor ongeveer 20 minuten.

Verwarm een grillpan op medium vuur. Voeg 2 eetlepels olijfolie toe aan de pan en grill de worstjes in ongeveer 12 minuten gaar en goudbruin. Snijd de pistolets of hotdog broodjes over de lengte in tweeën. Rooster de broodjes op de gesneden kant in de grillpan.

Breng de zuurkool op smaak met zout en peper. Leg op beide helften van broodje wat zuurkool en daar bovenop een worstje. Serveer met ketchup en mosterd.

mexican hamburger

2 beef hamburgers
2 ripe Haas avocado's
1 lime
1 tomato, finely diced
3 spring onions, finely sliced
pickled jalapeño chillies, to taste
small bunch coriander, finely chopped
75 g rocket
pita breads or hamburger buns, to serve

Begin by making the guacamole. Halve the avocado's, remove the stones and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Mash coarsely with a fork and add the juice from the lime.

Add the finely diced tomato and sliced spring onions. Chop the jalapeño and add to the guacamole - you can make it as mild or as spicy as you like. Season with salt and pepper. Lastly add the chopped coriander. Place the avocado stones into the guacamole and cover with plastic wrap. This helps prevent the avocado from discolouring.

Heat a griddle pan over medium heat. Drizzle the hamburgers with a little olive oil and grill until cooked through, about 10-12 minutes. The cooking time depends on the size your hamburgers. If they happen to be quite thick, a good tip is to flatten them with the palm of your hand before you cook them.

Remove the burgers from the pan, wipe out some of the excess fat with paper towel. Slice open the pita or hamburger buns and toast lightly.

Dress the rocket with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper and discard the avocado stones from the guacamole. Fill each pita or bun with a handful of rocket, top with the burgers and spoon a generous amount of guacamole on top.
