Dutch Meatballs (Bitterballen)

Recipe by
2 Hrs 15 Mins



  • 100g Vegan Butter
  • 30g Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Small Carrot, grated
  • 500ml Vegetable Stock
  • 150g Plain Flour
  • 400g Plant Based Mince of choice (or finely chopped mushrooms if you prefer)
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg, grated
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1tbsp White Breadcrumbs
  • 60g Crackd® The No-Egg-Egg®
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  • 40ml Plant Based Milk
  • 60g Crackd® The No-Egg-Egg®
  • 50g Plain Flour
  • 50g White Bread Crumbs


  1. Melt the vegan butter in a small saucepan and lightly fry the onion and carrot until soft  
  2. Mix the vegetable stock powder/cube with boiling water
  3. Add the flour little by little and stir into a thick paste. Slowly whisk in the stock, making sure the sauce (roux) absorbs the liquid. 
  4. Simmer for a couple of minutes on a low heat while you stir in the meat mixture. The whole mixture should thicken and turn into a heavy, thick sauce.
  5. Stir in the plant based mince, nutmeg, parsley and lemon juice and season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  6. Whisk in the Crackd® The No-Egg-Egg® and breadcrumbs and remove from the heat.
  7. Allow to cool and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight.


  1. Whisk the Crackd® The No-Egg-Egg® with the plant based milk in a bowl.
  2. Place the flour on one plate and the breadcrumbs on another.
  3. Heat the oil in a deep heavy-based frying pan until a breadcrumb sizzles and turns brown when dropped into it.
  4. Take a tablespoon of the cold, thick sauce and roll it into a small ball. Roll lightly through the flour, then the Crackd The No Egg Egg and finally the breadcrumbs.
  5. Fry the balls for 3-4 minutes, or until golden-brown. Remove the balls from the pan and set aside to drain on kitchen paper.
  6. Serve with spicy mustard.
