    ForeverMama's Note:

    This is a different and lovely bread to serve as a snack or with "Caldo Verde" (Portuguese Kale soup), salad or any meal of your choice. The "Chourico" is pronounced "Chureeso" and is different than the Mexican chourizo. It's a delicious sausage and I remember my parents making it from scratch, back in the old country when they slaughtered the hog. If you live near a Portuguese ethnic area, there should be no problem finding this sausage, but of course you can use any sausage of your choice.

      Amazing :) . The sausage was quite easy to find ay least for me.. I had to take care of something in Chicago, and before I left, I went on the internet, and found a place that was on the way.. The sausage was delicious. This also was quite an wast recipe to make, as we had it for dinner. Loved the flavors. I would watch the cooking time, mine was done about 15 minutes earlier, though I did have the oven preheating for a while. Tagged and made for PRMR.
