A lot of my officemates ask me “what do Filipinos eat for breakfast?” and when I answer rice they always have that surprised look on their face. I even tell them we eat rice all the time like breakfast, lunch, dinner and even desserts as well as merienda (tea time). After that question the follow up is what type of dishes would that be? Then I started to explain all those “silog” breakfasts even arrozcaldo, goto and champorado then they become even more surprised. Then I told them don’t they eat rice for breakfast? And they all answer no until I told them that creamed rice and cereals like rice crispies are made of rice then they started to understand.
Today we will be posting one of those popular “silog” breakfasts and today we are having longsilog short for LONGaniza, SInagnag and itLOG. Longaniza might sound exotic to non-Filipinos but actually this dish is more pleasing than sausages that contain meats and offal which you might not know of. Longaniza is a Filipino style sausage made out of real pork meat with no offal or what so ever, meat is minced and mixed with loads of garlic seasoned with vinegar, salt and sugar which gives it a savoury sweet taste, it can be enjoyed skinless or skin on. Usually this sausages are consumed during breakfast with sinangag or even a hot pandesal.
