Preparation / Directions:
Serves: 5-6 Cooking time: 8-10 minutes
Finely grind veal and pork, leaving some fat on pork. Combine meats.
Soak bread in cold water. Squeeze dry and crumble into a mixing bowl. Add onion, garlic, herbs, tomato, egg and vinegar; blend in soda, salt and pepper. Add meat and blend in lightly and thoroughly, using a hand if necessary. Chill for 1 hour.
Taking about 2 tablespoons of the mixture at a time, roll into balls. Moisten hands occasionally. Roll balls in flour and flatten into rounds 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter. Shallow fry in hot oil for 4-5 minutes each side. Patties will puff up. Turn carefully with spatula or tongs. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately with fried potatoes and vegetables or salad.
