Dutch Meatballs (Bitterballen) are a classic Dutch bar snack. Bitterballen, one of Holland's favorite snacks, are bite-size beef and gravy croquettes usually served along with beer.
Total time does NOT include time required to refrigerate meat mixture until solidified.
This recipe should yield roughly around 60 balls about 1 inch in diameter.
I used Panko bread crumbs here because I prefer them especially when trying to get something really crispy, but I put them in a food processor first and pulsed a few times to make them finer.
For a vegetarian option, used finely chopped mushrooms.
