Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/4 cup club soda
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 slices white bread, crusts removed, ripped into small pieces
  • Vegetable oil, for greasing
Serving suggestions:
  • Rolls, split
  • Thinly sliced onions
  • Kajmak (Serbian Cheese Sauce), recipe follows
  • Prepared avjar (red pepper and eggplant sauce)
Kajmak (Serbian Cheese Sauce):
  • 1 pound cream cheese
  • 1 pound feta cheese
  • 1 pound sour cream
  • 1/2 pound butter, softened (optional)

Directions

Serving suggestions:

Combine the beef, pork, club soda, salt, garlic, pepper, baking soda and bread in a mixing bowl and mix together by hand for at least 5 to 10 minutes. Refrigerate, covered, for a few hours or up to 12 hours. 

Grab a small handful of the meat mixture and roll between your hands to form breakfast sausage-size links. Repeat with the remaining meat. 

Heat a griddle until hot. Lightly grease the griddle with some oil, and then cook the cevapcici, rolling them around occasionally, until cooked though and golden. 

To serve: Grill the cut sides of the rolls. Sandwich the cevapcici and onions in the rolls with dollops of Kajmak and avjar and serve.

Kajmak (Serbian Cheese Sauce):

Beat together the cream cheese, feta cheese, sour cream and butter if using until fluffy.
