What is Kebabröra?

Kebabröra is a sandwich mix made from chopped Turkish Doner Kebab Meat in a rich cream sauce. It is available premade in containers that you can purchase in grocery stores in Sweden.

Our local grocery doesn’t sell kebabröra so we have made our own recipe that is inspired by the doner kebab sandwich mix you can find in cafe restaurants and Swedish grocery stores.

We have used yogurt and sour cream instead of mayo, our recipe is still rich and creamy with the addition of cream cheese.

It’s an extremely flavorful mix, and sliced green onions, hot sauce and kebab spice blend (kebabkrydda) take it over the top!

Serve it in a baguette, in a pita wrap, or on regular or low carb bread. However you choose to serve it, kebabröra is sure to please!

This is an addictive recipe, a perfect way to enjoy homemade Instant Pot doner kebab. You can use store bought doner kebab meat if you prefer.

Ingredients in Kebabröra in Baguette

The main ingredient is doner kebab meat. You can make your own homemade kebab or use leftover doner meat or even store bought doner meat.

We have called for labneh (a Turkish style yogurt cheese) because we love it, although you can use thick plain Greek yogurt instead.

STEP 2: Assemble the Kebabröra in Baguette

When you have your kebabröra mix prepared, then it’s time to make the baguettes or rolls.

First you need to create a “boat” out of the baguette or roll. To do so, start by making a cut lengthwise half way through the baguette. Then cut on an angle from each side into the previous cut, so you can remove the top pieces. Lastly, scoop out the interior to create the pocket for the kebabröra.

Storage Tips for Kebabröra

You can keep the kebabröra in an air tight container in the fridge for three days (if it’s not already consumed by then… LOL).

It is not recommended to freeze the kebabröra as the consistency will change once thawed. You’d be better off freezing the doner kebab meat separate and make a fresh batch of kebabröra when you want to eat it.
