Bitterballen is one of the most favorite Dutch snacks. In past times, bitterballen commonly served as an appetizer before the main meal; but now bitterballen is also enjoyed in a variety of outdoor activities such as picnics and various children’s parties. Usually, bitterballen is made with fresh beef and beef stock. For this recipe, I modified it using corned beef, milk, and edam cheese. The result is very delicious! Crunchy outside, tender inside.
- 200 grams corned beef
- 2 tablespoon full cooking oil
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons full butter
- 5 tablespoons full flour
- 150 ml milk
- 3 tablespoon full edam cheese
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 eggs beaten
- 3 cups breadcrumbs
- Cooking oil for healthier result, I suggest you to use coconut oil
Stir-fry garlic with cooking oil, add the corned beef, cook about 5 minutes. Turn off the stove, set aside.
Now let’s make the roux. Slowly melt the butter in a skillet or pan. When melted add the flour little by little and stir into a thick paste. Slowly stir in the milk. Make sure the roux absorbs the milk. Add the cheese; stir slowly. Simmer for a couple of minutes on a low heat. Turn off the stove.
Mix the roux and the corned beef in a container, stir well. Add the egg yolks, stir well. Cover the container and refrigerate for several hours, or until the thick gravy has solidified.
Take a heaping tablespoon of the cold, thick gravy and quickly roll it into a small ball. Roll through the egg until all surface of bitterbal covered by the egg, and then put into the breadcrumbs.
Heat some cooking oil in a deep-fry pan. Fry the bitterbals until golden brown. Serve hot with tomato sauce or mayonnaise.

I’m Maria, I live in a remote area, and I always try to make good food with ingredients around me. They are very limited, but that’s challenging me to be more creative each day.
