I have had a hankering for some mortadella and I wanted to make it myself.

Have any forum members done mortadella? Do you prefer natural beef bung or a textile casing?

Do you also have a preferred recipe? I have found a few mortadella recipes and am just wondering what is the most common or popular?

Bologna is cheap and disgusting but yet mortadella is gourmet. :emoji_laughing:

I do not have a recipe but found this: https://wedlinydomowe.pl/en/viewtopic.php?t=5512

I could be wrong but I think you want a plastic casing/waterproof as is not smoked but bathed or SV. I will say after making some weisswurst that this type of sausage is not as hard as you think it is to make.

I look at the recipes a lot , but have not tried it yet . Poli has 3 different formulas and Marianski has a couple as well . I love the stuff . There are some threads on here . I think crazy buzzard made some . The search engine here makes me crazy .

Good Luck, Mortadella is great!
Back in NJ, most towns had an Italian Deli, so Prosciutto, Coppa, and Mortadella was easy to find. Been almost 5 years since we moved to the Sticks in PA.
Cheapo Wonderbar Bologna is hit or miss out here. But, hey there's no Traffic...JJ
