Introduced by the Spanish, Longganisa has been a mainstay in Filipino cuisine for more than three centuries now. It can be made with a variety of meats such as chicken, beef or even certain fish. But it's traditionally made with pork and seasoned with a unique blend of spices and herbs that vary greatly from region to region and even family to family. It's a skinless (no casing) sausage, so it's simple to make at home. It can be made in advanced. So make a full batch and use what you want for your breakfast meal, and freeze the rest for later.
