  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine beef, veal, bread crumbs, onion, egg, soda water, seasoning blend, garlic, baking soda, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix well. Shape into small sausages and place on the prepared baking sheet.

  • You can pan-fry the patties in oil instead of grilling them, if preferred.
