October is Halloween month.  I always try new recipes from that corner of the world Hollywood has targeted as particularly spooky.  Romania, the Romanian region called Transylvania, and Hungary.  Transylvania has been a part of Hungary from time to time and this historical fact has not been lost on Hollywood. Let's not forget the spooky shroud covering Gypsies.  Please excuse the props.  

Romanian mititei are small (mititei translates as "small ones") heavily spiced and garlicky skinless sausages served with good mustard and sometimes fries.  They are also eaten in oval rolls topped with pickled or grilled red onions and roasted or grilled bell peppers.  There are many recipes but the addition of baking soda seems to be an ingredient in all of them.

For dessert, lizard eye lollypops  :D

There are many recipes for Mititei.  Here are three. I used a combination of #1 and #2.

Excellent idea (Romanian recipes for October) and outstanding work, gMan. I love the plating!

Mititei is something that I have long wanted to try, and there's no excuse for how long it has taken me. I'll see if I can correct that, soon!

Thanks for psoitng - great job!

Absolutely fabulous ..

I was in  Bucharest,  Brasov,  Transylvania and the high mountain forest passage of Castle  Braun, built in 1377 ..   (March 2016 and September 2016) ..  

Amazing truly.

The pastrama and the stuffed cabbage  were incredible ..

I wrote an article (shortened versión ) on FOTW in the Romanian Section. Of course, due to the Photo  Bucket issues with photographs, I lost the photographs ..  However, I do have the photographs on PDF ..  

Have a lovely weekend ..

An old Bukovina recipe I recently found

2 pounds ground Beef. The beef should have a high fat content,    the fat drips away during grilling. 1/2 teaspoon Salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground Pepper 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda 2 Garlic  Cloves minced through garlic press 1/4 teaspoon ground Allspice 1/2 teaspoon dried Summer Savory (Cimbru) 1/2 cup of Soda Water (sparkling water)
Combine all ingredients. Add the soda water and work the water into the meat mixture.  Shape into sausages about 1 inch thick and about 3 inches long.  Cover and refrigerate overnight . Grill over very hot coals, turning often until nicely browned on the outside but still having a slightly pink interior.
