These are very good. As someone who was born in Pancevo in what is now Serbia, this is a dish that we enjoy in the summer. Now living in the States for most of my life, we keep our heritage alive with wonderful homeland recipes just like this one. The best way to really taste these is on the grill. This is a very simple dish, not covered in sauces or special extra spices. Good earthy taste, Simple food at its best. Oh and great with a beer!
