  14. Sounds like a great Whores D' Orver. Kinda like a Romanian meatball shaped like a sausage and grilled. Oh I guess that's nothing like a meatball. Anyway they look great. Can you use beer instead of soda water?

    looks interesting.....a.k.a. tasty. any idea what the baking soda and soda water is for?

    So what does the soda water do? I am assuming that it does something otherwise you would just use regular water.


    (They look tasty by the way)

    Walking Meatloaf! How cool is that!!!!

    We love summer savoury.  It has replaced the poultry seasoning in our holiday stuffings. Nice alternative to sage in sausages.
