Brabantse worstenbroodjes

Ingredients:

Dough:

250 g flour
6 g salt

70 g butter

10 g caster sugar

13 g fresh yeast

125 ml milk

 

Filling:

450 g minced meat

1 ‘beschuit’*

0.5 egg

Salt

Freshly ground pepper

Nutmeg powder

 

Extra:

1 egg

 

Preparation:

 

Dough

Make a mound of the flour on the work surface and make a pit in it. Sprinkle the flour with the salt. Heat the milk until it’s lukewarm. Pour the milk in the pit. Add the butter and sugar. Add the yeast and mix it with your fingers through the milk to make a paste. Mix flour to the wet mass until it’s a smooth dough. It is important that the dough is kneaded for at least 5 minutes. Divide the dough in pieces of 90 grams. Make small balls, cover them in plastic foil and let them rest for 10 minutes.

 

Filling:

Mix the minced meat with the egg and a squeezed ‘beschuit’. Season with pepper, salt and nutmeg powder. Divide the meat into portions of 90 grams. Roll the portions into a sausage.

 

Worstenbroodjes:

Roll the balls of dough into an oval shape. Whip the egg and spread it over the sides of the dough. Put the sausage in the middle. Fold the short sides of the dough over the sausage, then fold the long sides over each other. Press the seams and put the worstenbroodjes seam side down on the baking tray with baking paper. Let it rise for 45 minutes under a layer of plastic foil.

 

Preheat the oven to 200 ºC. Cover the worstenbroodjes with the whipped egg and bake for 30 minutes till it has a gold/brown colour.
