Ćevapi – Croatian Sausage

What a treasure to have my parents visit.  This is a very old, very traditional dish that I grew up with.  A good glass of wine and good company makes this meal even more enjoyable to share.  Tonight my dad made these amazing Cevapi, I loved every bit dad!   Thank you!

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought those sausages are Bosnian?


    1. Hi Mikey, they are very common throughout the region and various countries. Each one adds a little more or less of one meat or another. I would really be surprise if the Bosnian kitchen did not have a version of it. J
