  • Spread and flatten the mixture onto the center of each foil, divide the slices of hard cook eggs and Vienna sausages.
  • Place each slices at the center of each mixture. Hold the foil onto your hand and roll until the ends of the mixture covers the eggs and sausages. Alternatively, by holding each ends of the foil, roll the mixture back and forth until it covers the slices of eggs and sausages in the center.
  • Finally, roll the aluminum foil into a tightly packed log about 1″ to 2″ in diameter, sealing on both ends. Repeat with the remaining pork mixture.

    The recipe omits the onions and it’s in the oven already. Next time i’ll add them. The description doesn’t say how much? My FIllipino will still have that memory of home. Thanks for this first time recipe for me.
