Uštipci from the Balkan regions to your home. From the family of Sanda Crnkic Mandrapa.

When we started asking for recipes obviously we had to ask Sanda for one of her family’s favorite dishes. That’s how we got the delicious recipe for Uštipci (Perfect for breakfast with meats and cheeses. Uštipci are doughnut-like fried dough balls popular in Southeast European countries, namely Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, North Macedonia, Serbia, Slovenia, and Albania. In this case, Sanda’s family is from Prijedor a town in the North of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The great thing about when we asked for the recipe Sanda was already in the process of getting the recipe from her family for her child’s school project. Love the fact we are remembering where we came from through food. Want to try Uštipci? Follow these simple instructions:
