Hoi Sandra,


Thank you for your comment. :thumbsup:


I looked up "hutspot" on mijnwoordenboek.nl and 'hotchpotch' , 'hodgepodge' or 'hotpot' are all good translations

for the delicous 'hutspot'. :innocent:

For hutspot, I think the English translation should be "hodgepodge". I have never heard hotchpotch. Unless it's a British English translation?

Hoi Stan,


Dank je wel voor je reactie! Inderdaad erg lekker!!

Inderdaad echt eens een pannetje mosselen proberen en dan vooral in een Belgisch biertje klaarmaken.
