Kebakko is a type of ready-meal in Finland. Kebakkos are very similar to meatballs in Finland. It consists of meat, breadcrumbs, onions, eggs and spices. The difference is mostly in shape, instead of a ball, kebakko is about 12 cm piece of meat on a wooden stick, and is usually sold in packs of four to twelve. The name comes from the Turkish food kebab, and the Finnish word kepakko, meaning "small stick".

Kebakko represents fusion cuisine. It combines the Turkish kebab with traditional Finnish meatloaf. The usual way to serve kebakkos is to heat them and serve with various sauces for dipping; the stick enables the kebakkos to be dipped and eaten by hand.
