Hutspot is a traditional Dutch dish that is typically served as a main course or side dish. It is made from boiled and mashed potatoes, carrots, and onions, which are then seasoned with salt, pepper, and butter. The mixture is then topped with diced beef or bacon and served with gravy. Hutspot is usually served with traditional Dutch dishes such as rookworst (smoked sausage) or stamppot (mashed potatoes with other vegetables).

“Hutspot is one of my favorite traditional Dutch dishes, mashed together with vegetables and potatoes this is a comfort food for me as it is savoury and filling. Although it is a side I’d often make this alone on a rainy day for that nostagic feeling I have. If you love carbohydrates, this is the one for you.”Nylah Rose
“My first encounter with Hutspot was at The Dutch, Jakarta. It was a delightful experience.
The combination of boiled and mashed potatoes, carrots, and onions was simple, yet so flavorful. The sweetness from the carrots perfectly balanced the savory flavors of the potatoes and onions, and the addition of garlic and fresh herbs made the dish even more delicious. The creamy texture was comforting and filling, making it the perfect side dish for a cold winter evening.
I highly recommend trying this dish if you’re in the mood for a comforting and hearty side dish. I will definitely be back for more!”
