WTF is a bitterbal?

Bitterballen are a Dutch, originally meat-based snack. Roughly 3 to 4 cm in diameter. A breaded crust filled with something that resembles a stew. Bitterballs are (air)fried or oven baked and served HOT! So be careful. 
It derives its name from a generic word for Jenever, a herb-flavoured alcoholic beverage, called a bitter in Dutch. Since their birth they have evolved into a culinary treat with many different fillings. With meat, fish or vegetarian filling there is always one to sooth your taste.
