GRILLERS FROM JAC VAN DEN OORD POTATOES:
THE IDEAL KUMPIR POTATO!
Kumpir is street food, originally from Turkey. In Turkey, this baked, stuffed potato is just as common as in the Netherlands, a portion of fries from the snack bar around the corner.
The potato is baked in an oven, cut in and the crumb is mixed with some butter and sometimes also cheese is added. The potato is flavored with a mix of various toppings, for example corn, peas, pieces of pickle, pieces of olive or slices of sausage. But nowadays you also see many other variations: smoked salmon, crème fraîche or beet salad. In principle, anything is possible!
Not every potato is suitable for making Kumpir: it must meet high standards in terms of cooking properties, shape and appearance. The food professional also wants potatoes that are uniform in size and weight: every customer gets the same portion on the plate! That is why we recommend Grillers from Jac van den Oord Potatoes.

Boxes of 15kg are practical:
- Boxes keep the potatoes dark, so that they turn green less quickly and last longer.
- The cardboard also absorbs excess moisture, reducing the risk of spoilage.
