I’m surprised when I learned that embutido is not a Filipino original recipe. According to Wiki the word embutido is a generic term for sausages. Although we Filipinos can refer to embutido as a traditional Filipino style meatloaf, wrapped in an aluminum foil and steamed.
School will start soon and I’m getting ready preparing the list of baon (packed lunch) for the kids.
Embutido is definitely in the list. I usually buy embutido at Pancit ng Taga Malabon restaurant at Circle C, I get it for P115/roll. I thought to make my own so I could have something handy during school days and I think that P115/roll is expensive.
For P400.00 I spent on groceries for the ingredients I made 10 rolls… that’s about P40.00/roll. See the savings? The fact that I am aware what is in it – free from preservatives and all made from fresh ingredients.
Below is the recipe and instructions on how to make embutido.
P.S. Share your baon list! Fellow mommies, I’ll be thrilled if you share your baon list here for your school kids. Send me a PM or comment below!
