In a few days it is Kingsday! sadly, all events have been cancelled for the coming time. This means you have to celebrate Kingsday at home. That is why I decided to share some really nice, typically Dutch recipes to try at home. every day untill Kingsday, I will share one recipe with you. Feel free to check out my page for more recipes!


There are some typical snacks that dutch people eat with their fries. You have heard or even tried the “Kroket”, for example. It has a crunchy shell with ragout on the inside. However, a lot of foreign people who try it, don’t like it. So, to do you a favour, we are sharing a recipe with a “frikandel”, another dutch snack.

A “frikandelbroodje” is a pastry made of “frikandel”, curry sauce and puff pastry. For the occasion of celebration, we will share the recipe on how to make mini “frikandelbroodjes”, for you and your friends to share. Therefore, this recipe is for 12 pieces.

Ingredients you need:

4 frozen “frikandellen”

6 slices of puff pastry

Curry sauce

1 egg, whipped

The steps:

1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius. Keep the oven tray out of the oven.

2. Put baking paper on the oven tray.

3. Cut the puff pastry slices into two equal parts and the “frikandellen” into 3 equal parts.

4. Put the puff pastry on the oven tray and put curry sauce on the right side of each puff pastry slice. Put the “frikandellen” on top of the curry.

5. Make small incisions on the left side of the puff pastry slice from left to right.

6. Spread the whipped egg over the excess puff pastry that is not covered with “frikandel” or curry sauce.

7. Pick up the left side of the puff pastry and fold it over to the right side.

8. With a fork, attach the sides to each other by mashing the edges together.

9. Put the “frikandelbroodjes” in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes until they are golden-brown.

Tune in tomorrow, on Kingsday, for "Tompoucen"!
