I ate this dish in the former Yugoslavia in 1986 (now Croatia) on the way to the famous Plitvicer Lakes. I always ordered a Grill Plate, it was a safe bet because of the language barrier. One way or another I ended up with
Cevapcici, a Balkan sausage on my plate.
Cevapcici, a Balkan Sausage
1.5 lb minced beef and pork, or lamb
3 cloves garlic
2 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp oregano
1 medium onion
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp paprika
You can grill or fry Cevapcici. Eat with a salad, home fried potatoes and Tzatziki sauce
Mix the minced meat in a bowl with the pressed garlic cloves, and season with salt, pepper, oregano and paprika powder.
Then add eggs, chopped onion and breadcrumbs and mix well with moistened hands.
Form rolls from the meat mixture (about 2.5″ long and 3/4″ thick).
Lightly brush the meat rolls with oil and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the grill and place the cevapcici on the hot grill.
Brown on all sides until crispy.
Optional: you can fry them in a pan with hot olive oil on all sides.
