Simple but very good comfort food. Normally made with just some salt, pepper and nutmeg in the meat filling but I make them different these days and with many variations (just don't tell my mother!). Slavink translates as beatfinch (yes I know its weird) they are wrapped in bacon and another version is blinde vink= blind finch (even weirder) that is the same meat filling but then wrapped in a thin slice of veal. These days often replaced with a slice of beef. Some still name it blinde vink but the right name is runder vink=beef finch. I have tried very hard over the years to understand why they are named like this since I can honestly not see the resemblance of a bird in these sausages and I've never seen one fly away!No Dutch person in their right mind makes them at home since you can buy them ready made from every butcher and in every super market. Now that information should tell you something about the poster of this recipe, who is Dutch....My excuse is that I lived many years abroad and that is when you crave for the simple dishes of your home country.We eat them here with vegetables and potatoes but they are also good cooked on the barbeque and served on buns with ketcup and mustard.
