      We came across this recipe last year while looking for Serbia for a Eurovision Party. We wanted something that could be cooked on the BBQ from our chosen country, and found these! They went down a treat! we are hoping to use this as a base for our own BBQ Bites soon...

      I was born in the former Yugoslavia, so have eaten my fair share of cevapi. I omitted the ground lamb and adjusted the other seasonings to taste. Instead of minced garlic, I added garlic powder (so that my picky eaters would be more apt to eat it.) I served this with finely chopped onions on the side and homemade pomfrit (fries). Thank you for posting; absolutely a winner!
