Potato Kale Mash with Sausage

Commonly known as Boerenkool met worst, this is staple food in the Netherlands.

Yes, a typically Dutch dish my love makes for us often, also known as “stampot” meaning anything you stomp together which is a lot of things in Holland! Normally potato mashed with a veggie, served with the protein of choice which is usually….sausage.

You probably have seen it in my Instagram stories at least every other week during cold months and I’ve been meaning to post it for you! It is SO easy. So yummy. Made by the one and only Winecoach for your pleasure.

As promised…

Winecoach’s Boerenkool met worst – or Potato Kale Mash with Sausage


  • 3 large potatoes, quartered in big chunks
  • 1 head of kale, chopped (or 1/2 of a large bag of chopped kale – remove stems.
  • 1 large smoked sausage (we used beef/pork smoked sausage – kielbasa works great as well)
  • 1/4 cup milk


  • 1. Drop potatoes into a pan filled with salted water at about the halfway point of the pan. The potatoes shouldn’t be fully submerged. Bring to a boil.

2. Once water starts boiling, add kale to the top of potatoes without mixing them in. They should Hoover over the water and area over potatoes. Allow this to simmer at medium to low heat and loosely cover pan. Allow to simmer for 25 minutes.

3. Lay sausage on top of the kale and continue to simmer for 15 minutes, turning the sausages halfway, at about 7-8 minutes to heat it evenly.

4. Remove sausage, drain water from potato/kale.

5. Add 1/4 cup of warm milk and mash potato and kale until smooth, for a few minutes, as you would mashed potatoes.

6. Stir with a wooden spoon and serve piping hot with maggi sauce and sausage.

Winecoach says if you don’t have the maggi, add salt to the mash for added flavor.

He has her to find a sausage like the one from Holland and likes to complain this just isn’t the same, but I say I’m pretty happy with the end result!

I hope you make this! Too easy.
