The Dutch love their meat and potatoes. Perhaps the most popular meat dish is the ubiquitous gehaktbal, or meat ball. It's huge and juicy and really easy to make. Here's how.

Step 1:


1 lb ground meat (half pork, half beef, or "half om half" as it's known in Holland)
1 cup bread crumbs ("paneermeel")
2 eggs
2 tsps salt
2 tsps pepper
2 tsps ground nutmeg

I made these today with my Dutch mother-in-law. Turned out great. Used whole wheat breadcrumbs. Added 2 tsp garlic powder. 1 tsp oregano. 1 tsp cumin. And a third of an onion finely chopped. I feel like the nutmeg really made it what it was tho.
Awesome! I tried to make meatballs the other day with a bit of success! I will have to keep this in mind for next time.
