Dutch Sausage Rolls

Dutch Style Sausage Rolls (Saucijzen Broodjes)

Wow, it’s been over 2,5 years since I’ve written anything on this blog. How time has flown by! I don’t really blog anymore and tend to mainly use Instagram @dutchessroz for sharing photos and stories around food, travel, and lifestyle. But I made these Dutch Sausage rolls the other day and my friend wanted the recipe so I thought, hmmm maybe I should just put it on my blog.

You may ask, what are Dutch Sausage rolls and what makes them different to any other sausage roll? Well in The Netherlands they are called ‘Saucijzen Broodjes’ and they are a popular snack that you can buy from any bakery, snack bar, most supermarkets, and train stations. They are served hot and are oh so delicious! What makes them different to any other sausage rolls is the spiced meat filling that probably originates from the Dutch being such big spice traders back in the day. Anyhow, without further ado, here is the recipe!

Spinach Salad with Strawberries, Avocado, Blue Cheese and a Poppyseed Dressing

It’s summer, which means BBQ season so it’s vital to have a winning salad recipe in your repertoire. This Spinach Salad with Strawberries, Avocado, Blue Cheese and a Poppyseed Dressing is one of my summer-go-to salads to bring to a party or to serve as a simple but tasty side salad with some meat. You can throw it together in minutes and the mix of the sweet strawberries with the blue cheese and the refreshing dressing is a match made in heaven. Quick tip; if you’re taking this to a BBQ or party – just keep the dressing in a cup or container and pour it over the salad just before serving so the spinach doesn’t go all soggy!

Christmas Baking Inspiration

Only 3 more sleeps until Christmas! Life has been pretty hectic the last few weeks, so I have to say I am very much looking forward to a couple of days of chilled family time at home over the holidays. I am not going away for long but spending time with family and eatings lots of delicious food is going to be wonderful. I’ll probably be spending most of my time in the kitchen with my dad cooking up a storm and baking lots of festive treats – and I love it.

In my family we don’t really do presents at Christmas (because we celebrate St Nicholas on the 5th of December) so instead I always bake something, to be able to give them delicious edible presents. I always do my Christmas baking research on Pinterest and I found some great recipes..but I am not going to share those on blog just yet. So instead I thought I’d share with you some of the things I’ve made in the last few years to give you  all some Christmas baking inspiration!
