Ćevapi or ćevapčići/ćевапчићи is a Balkan dish of grilled minced meat, a legacy of the Ottoman Empire found in the countries of South Eastern Europe. We were in Plitvice and of course we must eat something Croatian :)
The Croatian made them from pork and beef. They are considered a national dish in Bosnia and Herzegovina and in Serbia too. They are also common in Montenegro, Slovenia, as well as in Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia and the border between Italy and Slovenia (provinces of Trieste, Udine and Gorizia). They may be served on a plate or in a flatbread (lepinja or somun), often with chopped onions, sour cream, kajmak, ajvar, and even cottage cheese.
