A Finnish food menu is mostly with potato so what is better than, mashed potatoes and hot dog sauce or nakkikastike. If you are not in Finland, you will think of this hot dog sauce as something else. Could be the sauce you add to your hot dogs with bread, but this is something else actually.

If you have been following my blog, you noticed already that I cook both Asian and western cuisine. I like to cook for the family. I am mostly cooking what the whole family likes to eat, including the youngest. Food that is simple and easy to prepare but also a healthier option, but at some point, I also cook fast foods like hot dogs.

So, while I was boiling the potatoes to be soft, I am cooking the sauce at the same time. How to cook the mashed potatoes and the Finnish hot dog sauce, you’ll find out below.

Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 15 pieces of medium-sized potatoes
  • 1.5 L water
  • 2 dl fresh milk
  • 50 g butter

Procedure:

  • Peel the potatoes and cut into four
  • In a big pot, put the water
  • Add the potatoes and bring to boil. This time I start doing the sauce
  • Lower the heat and cover until cook
  • Drain the water
  • Add the butter and make it melt
  • Add the milk
  • Smashed the potatoes using your smasher or fork
  • Smashed and mixed well

Hot Dog Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 15 pieces hotdog
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 beef stock cubes
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 dl cream
  • 3 dl water
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • black pepper
  • oil

Procedure:

  • Peel and slice the onion
  • Slice the hotdog into thin circles
  • In a medium heat pan, saute the onion in oil until brown
  • Add the hotdogs and mix well
  • Add the flour and wait that flour becomes brown and mix again
  • Pour water and smashed beef stock cubes
  • When boiling, add the cream, soy sauce,ketchup and black pepper
  • Mixed at once and simmer for 10 minutes

It is very good to serve this with fresh salad or steamed vegetables. It is also possible to make this sauce as sausage instead of hot dogs. Sausages or Makkara in Finnish local language is a commonly found in the grilling season, outdoor activities, or sauna food.

Mashed potatoes can also be a perfect match for the Finnish Karelian stew, check out my blog about the recipe.

Hot dog or sausage is a processed food, so we try not cook this often. Twice a month sometimes, because it is easy and kids love it too. 🙂
