Recipe by quotFoodThe Way To

I am of Portuguese descent. One of the ethnic foods for the Portuguese is "chourice or linguica." It is a spicy sausage that if wonderful fried, scrambled with eggs or used in the next recipe! It's hard to find, but can be ordered online @ www.linguica.com or Gaspars.com.

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I recommend linguica to anyone who hasn't tried. I grew up with eating linguica at home or at my Portugese grandpa's home...it's soooo good fried up (but oh so bad for you!). Can't wait to try this recipe!
