    Oh my gosh, I’m thinking of making skinless longganisa too!!!

    If I ate meat I would surely eat these! They look great!

  15. Interesting idea to wrap the meat in spring roll. I assume it’s crunchy outside because of the spring roll wrapper right? Looks delicious!

  16. On this skinless Longaniza/sausage… looks AMAZING. Great job

  19. blank foodjaunts says:

    I love longsilog, lol actually just had some for breakfast this morning. I’ve never tried making the skinless kind at home, but with this easy recipe I’ll definitely be trying it out soon!

  20. A handy recipe given it would be next to impossible for me to find ready-made in the supermarket – what an interesting recipe !

  21. blank Maureen O'Reilly says:

    I’ve been looking for a good sausage recipe and thought your photos look great. Can you tell us where annatto powder is sold? And how much garlic – a clove? A head? Mashed, minced? Raw or should it be cooked first?

  22. blank Lea Merano says:

    I’ve tried this recipe & my husband & friends loved it. Very easy to make. I used the bottled garlic from woolies bec the taste is stronger. Mine looks brown though, not reddish like the filo style. I wonder why?

  23. blank Jiji says:

    wow! thanks, I will try this recipe for my kids….thanks for your site…

  24. blank Ida says:

    If I use bottled minced garlic, can you kindly tell me approximately how much of it I have to use in equivalent to 1 head of garlic?
    And if I’m using iodized fine table salt instead of fine sea salt, do I have to lessen the amt of salt mentioned in the recipe?
