I am looking for a recipe that includes linquica and cheese , baked in a flaky bread dough to make a delicious Linquica cheese roll. After baking, it is often split in half, spread with butter and grilled to a golden brown. The bread is soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Using store bought frozen dough will not cut it. I hope someone knows how to make these delicious breakfast treats.

I was brought up with portugese cooking. Kale soup with linguica is very good however we always had linguica sandwiches with peppers & onions. I add cheese as well. The sausage shaped linguica served on a torpedo roll, the patty shaped linguica served on a hamburger bun, grilled as an alternative to burgers. YUM!

Bev,

I forgot to mention you can go to Gaspar's website www.gasparssausage.com. and they have alot of recipes using their sausage. Hope this helps.

Hi Bev,
My Portuguese family made a very simple spaghetti sauce using either Linguica or Chourico. Both made by Gaspar's. I prefer the Chourico because it is a little spicer and has more flavor. But here it is.

1 pkg Linguica or Chourico
2 8oz cans tomato paste
3 16oz cans tomato sauce

Peel skin off of meat and cut into very small pieces into dutch oven. Put enough water to cover meat and still have enough to boil for about 15-20 min. Add tomato sauce and paste. Simmer for 45-50 min. Serve over spaghetti. You can adjust your tomato sauce and paste for varying thickness. Just depends on how you like it. Serves about 4 hungary people with some garlic bread.

The Kale soup recipe by nbmeme is also excellent. Give it a try.

By the way, my family is from Fall River. Not too far from New Bedford. We are transplants to Fla for many years now.
