Homemade Dutch Mayonnaise/Fritessaus

Apr 15, 2018 by

 
 
In Holland we like to add fritessaus to our french fries. Fritessaus is a sort of mayonnaise. It is similar to mayonnaise, but with at most 25% fat, it is leaner and usually sweeter than mayonnaise. Mayonnaise in the Netherlands is required by the Warenwet (Wares law) of 1998 to contain at least 70% fat and at least 5% egg yolk before it may be called mayonnaise. My favorite fritessaus is from Gouda’s Glory. Since I can not buy it here this is my attempt of Dutch Mayo/fritessaus.
Cuisine: Dutch
 
Ingredients
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup of sunflower oil
  • 1tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • pinch of mustard
  • optional green chives
For the fritessaus
  • water
  • sugar
  • cornstarch
 
Instructions
  1. I’m using my stick blender to make the mayo, you can use the food processor if you like. Add the sunflower oil, lemon juice, mustard and salt to the egg yolk.
  2. Slowly pull the stick blender up, and voila you made yourself some home made mayo. Optional is to add ea. chives, garlic etc.
  3. If you want a lighter sauce like fritessaus, you can slowly stir in water. It may then de-mix when left standing, that’s why factories add more emulsifiers or even thickening agents like starch (zetmeel). and add sugar to your taste.
  4. Homemade mayonnaise should be stored in the refrigerator and should be consumed within just a few days. Since it does contain raw eggs it is not advised for the very old or very young, pregnant or otherwise immunologic-ally challenged.  You can also use pasteurized eggs to reduce risk of salmonella poisoning.

Chili’s most popular salad, Quesadilla Explosion Salad. It Includes grilled chicken with cheese, tomatoes, corn relish,  tortilla strips and quesadilla’s. Served with Ranch Chipotle, citrus-balsamic dressing and cheese quesadilla wedges. This salad has been posted as one of the most unhealthy salads. You could make it a healthier salad if you leave out the Ranch Chipotle dressing, make the quesadillas with whole wheat tortillas and low fat cheese and no fried tortilla strips but instead bake them.
 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of Citrus Balasamic Vinaigrette (recipe below)
  • 1 cup Chipotle Ranch Dressing (recipe below)
  • 2 boneless fajita marinated chicken (recipe below)
  • Salad greens of your choice

 

For the Corn relish
  • ½ can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ can of corn
  • 3 Roma tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp minced cilantro
  • 1/2 diced red onion
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
For the Fajita Marinated Chicken
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts halved
  • 2½ cups water
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • Chicken seasoning of choice
For the Chipotle Ranch Dressing
  • ½ cup Ranch Dressing
  • 1 tsp chopped canned chipotle pepper
For the Citric Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
For the tortilla Strips
  • any 3 tortillas
  • peanut oil
For the Quesadillas
  • 8 tortillas
  • butter
  • 1 cup shredded cheese of your choice I used half cheddar and half Monterey jack cheese
Instructions
  1. First lets make the marinate for the chicken breast. Since the chicken breast are to thick for my taste I half them. Combine the 2½ cups water, 2 tbsp sugar, 2 tsp salt, 1½ tsp cumin, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder. Marinate for at least 2 hours. While the chicken is marinating go and make the Chipotle Ranch salad dressings. You can make your own Ranch Dressing or buy the bottled one and add the Chipotle pepper.
  2. For the Balsamic vinaigrette whisk all ingredients and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Make the corn relish. Rinse the corn and beans, add tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, cilantro, lime juice, sugar, salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  4. Stack the tortillas and cut into thin strips. Fry or bake the tortilla strips until crispy, cool on paper towels to drain.
  5. Preheat the paninni maker and spray with some olive oil. Season the halved chicken breast with chicken seasoning of your choice. Grill the chicken breast for 4-5 minutes on each side, until done. Keep the chicken warm and slice when ready to use.
  6. Spread butter on both  outsides of the tortillas. Top one side of the tortilla with your choice of cheese, and top it with the other tortilla. Put some butter in a hot skillet. Fry the tortillas on both sides, that shouldn’t take but a minute.
  7. Wash salad greens and place in a large bowl. Add the corn relish to the salad greens. Add the sliced chicken breast, shredded cheeses. Toss with desired amount of the Citrus Balsamic Vinaigrette and or Ranch Chipotle dressing. Add the Cheese Quesadillas and serve with the deep fried tortilla strips.

Boerenkool Stamppot

Apr 24, 2016 by

Boerenkool Stamppot (kale hodgepodge literary translated farmers cabbage hodgepodge) is a Dutch dish of mashed potatoes mixed with kale. There are sometimes other vegetables mixed into Stamppot, like sauerkraut (zuurkool stamppot), raw endive (andijvie stamppot)or carrots (hutspot). It is commonly served with a smoked sausage (rookworst), spekjes (bacon), pickled baby onions and gherkins. It is also tasty with a small “pond” of brown gravy in the center of the vegetable mixture.

This simple but yet so delicious recipe I got from my dear mom. I can’t ask her no more: “Mom how did you make it?”, that’s why this recipe book is a true treasure to me.

At the moment one pot dishes seems to be in “style” like one pot pasta’s. Stamppot have been around in the Netherlands like forever, you could say one of the first one pot meals ;).

At the moment one pot dishes seems to be in “style” like one pot pasta’s. Stamppot have been around in the Netherlands like forever, you could say one of the first one pot meals ;).The stamppots are primarily served as a cold-weather dish, though some varieties are eaten year round. Dutch habit is that you don’t make no boerenkool till it has been freezing temperatures. The starch in the leaves is converted by the freezing temperature into sugars, which makes the taste of kale sweeter.

This simple but yet so delicious recipe I got from my dear mom. I can’t ask her no more: “Mom how did you make it?”, that’s why this recipe book is a true treasure to me.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 6 medium sized peeled potatoes, halved

Boerenkool Stamppot
 
Boerenkool Stamppot (kale hodgepodge literary translated farmers cabbage hodgepodge) is a Dutch dish of mashed potatoes mixed with kale. There are sometimes other vegetables mixed into Stamppot, like sauerkraut (zuurkool stamppot), raw endive (andijvie stamppot)or carrots (hutspot). It is commonly served with a smoked sausage (rookworst), spekjes (bacon), pickled baby onions and gherkins. It is also tasty with a small “pond” of brown gravy in the center of the vegetable mixture. This simple but yet so delicious recipe I got from my dear mom. I can’t ask her no more: “Mom how did you make it?”, that’s why this recipe book is a true treasure to me. At the moment one pot dishes seems to be in “style” like one pot pasta’s. Stamppot have been around in the Netherlands like forever, you could say one of the first one pot meals ;).

Stamppot have been around in the Netherlands like forever, you could say one of the first one pot meals ;).The stamppots are primarily served as a cold-weather dish, though some varieties are eaten year round. Dutch habit is that you don’t make no boerenkool till it has been freezing temperatures. The starch in the leaves is converted by the freezing temperature into sugars, which makes the taste of kale sweeter. This simple but yet so delicious recipe I got from my dear mom.
