**Update July 2013…this post is badly in need of some new photos and it’s on my to do list! Bear with me if you’re reading it before then**
While affectionately known as Buddah Kohl to any dutchman we know, it’s real name is Boeren Kool. Maybe if you can actually speak dutch, it’s pronounced Buddah Kohl? I tried to convert our household into calling it by the correct name but was quickly shot down by Cowboy, insisting that everyone calls it Buddah Kohl. Without further ado…
Get yourself some mashes potatoes. For two people, I did 4 large potatoes and we had leftovers. Make double one night and use the leftovers for this, or make them specifically for it. Make them on the milky side if you use dry kale, because it will soak up the milk.
The ingredient that makes this different, is Kale! We dry Kale from our garden in the summer so we can make this in the winter.
Preheat your oven to 350F. There is no specific recipe for this, it’s proportions. For every 2 potatoes, add 3/4 dry kale (Soaked for 1 hour in hot water) or a few good leaves of Kale, (Main veined taken out, chopped into 1″x 1″ pieces and lightly steamed). Mix the two together and put in an over proof pot with lid. I like an enameled cast iron dutch oven.
This is the ratio you want
Now it’s time for the sausages. Beautiful, beautiful sausages! 3 venison Chorizo in the back, 3 venison hot italian in the front. I use 3 sausages per 2 potatoes and 3/4 c kale.
Poke each with 3 or 4 holes so that the juice seeps onto the potatoes. Place the sausages on the potatoes and put the lid on the pot.
Bake at 350F for 30-45 minutes, or until juices run clear in sausages.
Serve up on a plate and dig in!
This is the second time I’ve photographed these. It’s extremely difficult because of the colours and sausages. Any tips? Different colour plate? I’d love feedback!
Other options…sliced carrots on top of potatoes, underneath sausages is really good. Steaming and mashing cauliflower into your potatoes also adds extra veggies! This is just the classic recipes, I prefer to jazz it up!
