Vetkoek

Sometimes, you’ve got to throw away whatever notions you have of what makes food good – and focus instead on what makes it damned tasty – even if it’s possible detrimental to your health. For the first time in a long time, I had vetkoek and mince. Deliciously puffy pockets of deep-fried dough, stuffed with savoury mince and grated cheese and a bit of freshly chopped chillies for a bit kick. My heart’s not that happy – but my soul is.

            And yes, there is lekke, but I’m placing focus on the e, to elongate the eeee

            As jy nou wil kla oor die korrekte spel van die woord, is ons altwee verkeerd.

            Hierdie gaan oor konteks.

            Actually, I’m not that surprised. I bet they taste delicious.

      OR homemade with some proper sausage inside before you deep fry the bad boys…. Hmm.

      Done that with some cheesegriller from the local butchers or some pork sausage.

          no, but Grandmother was Irish. I learnt to drink tea from her.

          BUT, my wife makes the most amazing Toad in Hole. Which is nothing like a sausage in a vetkoek.

          But it is British.

            Thought so. Because you’ve effectively taken an amazing South African adaptation of a traditionally Dutch dish and butchered it with your suggestion. XD

            Yes. I’m biased.

            May 10, 2016 at 16:59

            I still fail to see your point.

            It is nice, to put meaty things inside the raw vetkoek and then deep fry the crap out of it. I would think that is the end. One of my uncles (yes, he called me Soutie till the he died) used to complain the same thing about toast.

            I love the dish toad in a hole. Especially the part where the sausages sauce gets sucked up by that pasty dough.

          • miaau

            May 10, 2016 at 17:02

            yes, and how it does. interesting taste to it.

            May 10, 2016 at 17:03

            Sometimes when we didn’t have pork sausages we used boerewors. We improvised most of our foods XD

          • miaau

            May 10, 2016 at 17:04

            ah, but out of the improv come of a families favourite treats, lovingly built up over the years.
