Mortadella is a type of Italian sausage made from ground pork, pork fat, and various spices, including black pepper and nutmeg. The mixture is then stuffed into a large casing and cooked by steaming or baking. It is typically sliced thin and served as a cold cut, often on sandwiches or charcuterie boards.:


  • 2 lb ground pork
  • 1 lb pork fat
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • Hog casing


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground pork, pork fat, black pepper, nutmeg, salt, garlic, and white wine. Mix well until evenly combined.
  2. Stuff the mixture into the hog casing, removing any air pockets.
  3. Steam or bake the mortadella for about 2 hours at 350°F or until the internal temperature reaches 160°F.
  4. Allow the mortadella to cool completely before slicing and serving.
