So easy. Quick. Tasty. Crowd pleaser. Minimal ingredients and mess (you had me at less mess)

Thank you @mjadrijevic for sending through this recipe! I tweaked it a tad as usual so here are my measurements. My Croatian friends were impressed so it got their ✅ of approval.

Chevapi (Croatian Skinless Sausages)

Cooking Time: 30-45 minutes  | Servings: 20 chevapi

Rated 5.0 out of 5



  • 500 grams beef mince
  • 500 grams pork mince
  • 4 cloves of garlic – crushed
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda/baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1-2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • Good grind of black pepper and salt


  1. Mix well and roll into little 20 even sausages. I use a 1/4 measuring cup to portion them.
  2. You can either grill these for 3-5 minutes on medium high heat or bake on a lined baking tray in the oven at 200C for about 15-20 minutes.
  3. Serve with roast potatoes because it would be very uncroatian not too and a salad because…. Balance..


    • Replace pork mince with veal or lamb mince.
    • These freeze well for 3 months. To cook, simply thaw covered overnight in the fridge and cook as method instructions.
