Stampot Sla

I thought I had  posted this already, but here it was in my drafts.  Stampot is literally "mash pot". a traditional Dutch dish of potatoes mashed with other vegetables, while sla translates to lettuce. Hence, the name of this dish.  Stampot Sla is an excellent summer dish, super easy to make and loved by my family - including the fussy eater.

Stampot Sla

    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    Cook Time: 20 minutes
    Total Time: 30 minutes

              2 lb Potatoes, peeled and halved
              1 Vegetable stock cube
              1 Head Butter Lettuce
              5 Egg
              1 Tbsp Butter
              1 Tbsp Hand-hot cream (or milk)
              Salt and White Pepper, to taste


In a large soup pot, cover the potatoes with water.  Add a stock cube and bring to a boil.  Meanwhile, wash the lettuce thoroughly, spin dry and slice the individual leaves into strips.  When the potatoes are soft, drain them well. Pat them dry and give them a shake in the pot. Mash with a potato masher or ricer. Add an egg, the butter and cream (or milk). Now fry the four eggs in a frying pan, but be careful to leave the yolks runny and intact.  Add some lettuce to the mash and mix it in using a wooden spoon. Season to taste.  

Serve the stamppot on a bed of sliced lettuce with an egg on top.  Pierce the yolk and allow the runny liquid to dribble down the mound. 

Serves 4

Note: I didn't use salt or pepper and the potatoes were delicious.  The vegetable stock seemed to season the potatoes perfectly.

My family absolutely loves my take on the traditional antipasto salad. I always have to make large batches to last several days. The bigges...
