A traditional Dutch recipe with a twist. My mother found this recipe in a women's magazine in the late 1970s and has been cooking it ever since.

Makes 10 rolls

• 500g beef mince
• 2 eggs, beaten together
• 1 cup breadcrumbs
• Pepper and salt
• Streaky bacon rashers
• Toothpicks


1. Mix the first four ingredients together by hand in a bowl and form into sausage-size portions.

2. Set aside to chill in the fridge.

3. Wrap each roll with bacon and toothpick.

4. Fry the rolls in a little oil until well-sealed.

5. Remove from the pan and set aside and keep warm. Leave the oil and bacon fat in the pan.

The sauce

1. Peel and deseed a small cucumber and cut into ¾cm dice-sized pieces.

2. Cook until soft in the pan you used for the rolls, adding a teaspoon of paprika.

3. Add 2 cups of cream and swirl together, boil to thicken a little.

4. Plate the rolls with plain boiled potatoes and cauliflower. Pour the sauce over the rolls and the vegetables.
