This recipe for Dutch meatballs are juicy, flavorful and a great accompany to almost every dish. Made in the same way my grandma use to bake them.
Meatballs can accompany almost every meal: Hotchpot, potatoes, veggies and meat dish (really Dutch), but it will combine easily with an Italian meal if you make the meatballs in a tomato sauce or if you add some spices it becomes delicious with rice.
A homemade meatball is juicy, with lots of flavor, you can use a good quality meat and contains a really nice gravy. It’s easy to make and you don’t need a lot of special ingredients. You’ve probably got them in your own cabinets. And to be honest: when you have eaten homemade meatballs you won’t want any others! This recipe was also used by my granny. I remember when eating them, it was one of my favorite meals. She made them the same way I do right now and I love to share this recipe with you.
We combined this meatballs with a great carrot hotchpot.
