Embutido, which is the Spanish word for sausage, is another Filipino dish of Hispanic origin. Filipino embutido is our version of meatloaf and is considered one of the most favorite dishes in any feasts or special occasions. My mother used to make this for birthday celebrations, Christmas, New Year, and fiesta. But you need not wait for special occasions to make this. It’s very easy to prepare. Just mix everything together in a bowl, roll mixture into a log on a sheet of aluminum foil and steam. You can also make this ahead of time and just store the steamed embutido in the freezer.

Embutido can be served as cold cuts or you can slice then fry it until the edges get lightly seared to a delicious crisp. I love it with sweet chili sauce while my husband likes dipping it in barbecue sauce. My daughters love it with Filipino ketchup. But with or without sauce, it’s so delicious! You should try it!
