Bitterballen and dill gherkin slaw hotdogs

posted in: Recipes | 0

Bitterballen isn’t quick, but if you make them (recipe here) and have them frozen ready for rainy days (or buy them frozen) this can be a quick and simple meal.

Kyle’s heritage is Dutch and one of his favourite Dutch snacks is bitterballen, they’re a fried gooey beef ragout meatball, coated in breadcrumbs. So this year for his birthday meal, I made Bitterballen Hotdogs… well they’re more like subs since I used half French loaves.
