This used to be a feast dish during our visits in the Christmas time at my grandma’s. But of course my grandma was not serving it with pumpkin cream, she served it with lots of onion and potatoes baked together with the meat in the fat. Nonetheless, the fat we shall need. We are going to use a lot of mangalica lard. Potatoes we only put in a few just for the tradition, . I have also exchanged the stronger red onions to shallot onions and we should not forget the garlic either that grandma was also using a lot. This way, we can cook a real filling winter comfort food that we can make feast-like. We can make a rillettes from the rest of the meat and fat which can be an excellent breakfast dish one of those lazy mornings with some fresh baguette or any other fresh bread. I cut up a lot of spring onions and radish to eat with.
