Whenever Jon and I head up to Massachusetts to visit Mumma, we have to have linguica rolls from Clyde's. Lucky for us, though, we don't usually have to buy them ourselves because Sheryle and Gary (hi Sheryle and Gary!), who are wicked good friends of the family--another aunt and uncle, really--pick up a moon (pictured here) for us.
The moon is comprised of seven individual rolls stuffed with linguica, a Portuguese sausage that’s made out of pork and that has mild heat. (Hmmm...kind of reminds me of a stuffed cookie...but not really.) The bread is light and yeasty and has a slightly sweet crust.
Today we stopped by Sheryle and Gary’s and surprised them with a moon of their very own. And we got one ourselves to take home. As you can see from these pics, it probably won’t survive our drive back.
I found a recipe online for linguica rolls, so stay tuned for my homemade version.
