Mititei or mici (grilled skinless sausages) is a typical Romanian dish. Usually in Romania you can find the prepared meat mixture in most food shops, and you only have to cook them.




  1. Combine all ingredients to form a paste.
  2. Shape meat mixture by hand into 7–8 x 2–2.5 cm (3 x 1 inch) sausage shapes. Each should be about 50 grams.
  3. Grill the sausages until cooked through. Do not let them dry out.
  4. Serve with salt, mustard, and bread.

Notes, tips, and variations

  • If grilling is not possible, you can fry the sausages in a skillet with some lard. Do not use oil.
