The ´bitterbal´ is very popular among mainly Dutch and Belgians. It is a small fried round snack of 3 to 5 cm in diameter with meat ragout. If you go to the supermarket you will see that there are several types of brands for sale. Everyone actually has a preference for a particular brand. For example, one person likes the bitterballen of Mora, while someone else favors a Van Dobben bitterbal. Not only are there different brands of bitterballs, nowadays you can also choose from a variety of types, such as veal, beef, chicken and vegetable bitterballen. Often people wonder what the difference is between a bitterbal and a croquet. Actually, they are the same. The ingredients and the manner of preparation are the same, only the shape is different. A croquet is only elongated and thus longer, but often it has the same diameter as a bitterball. Just like bitterballen, there are also different types of croquettes and each person has a preference for a particular brand because of the taste.

When do you actually eat bitterballen?
In the past, bitterballen were always eaten with a 'bittertje', a strong alcoholic herbal drink. Nice fact is that the name 'bitterbal' derived from this drink. By the middle of 1900 many housewives made a croquet or bitterbal from the leftover meat and served this as a starter / tapa for lunch or dinner. Today, the bitterballs are a popular part of the "bittergarnituur" in the pub, nightlife or during an important football match. Bitterballen are often eaten together with the famous mustard sauce and a beer. Also, as a snack, it is often eaten together with French fries. Of course you can order bitterballen in the bar together with your beer, in a restaurant or in Holland at a ´snack bar´ when you get fries. But it is just as good to bake them yourself. You can do this quickly and easily in a fryer, but without one you also get crispy bitterballen when baking them in a pan with oil. And nowadays there are brands that make bitterballen you can bake in the oven. So you do not have a hassle with hot oil.
