Cheese sandwich and a glass of buttermilk

Most Dutch people still take a packed lunch to work, typically consisting of a sandwich with brown bread and cheese (known as a bruine boterham met kaas) and half a pint of buttermilk, with a piece of fruit. Dutch office workers often eat a similar meal in their office canteens. Alternatively, they may go for a broodje bal (a meatball on a soft white bun), a sausage roll, a tosti (usually a toasted sandwich with ham and cheese ), a broodje kroket (a deep fried meat ragout croquette on a soft bun), soup or a salad, with a buttered roll and a boiled egg.
