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.
