Clean off the slabs of
pigskin with a damp cloth, Check skin to make sure hairs are off, usually
the skins come through pretty clean and need no attention.
Lay skin flat, shiny
side down. Sprinkle bread crumbs on entire length of pigskin, then sprinkle
all other dry ingredients on the skin.
Once all ingredients
are on skin, drizzle with olive oil. Roll skins tightly. Tie with cooking
twine in several places so they do not come apart while cooking.
Cook in your favorite
tomato sauce until they are tender, a minimum of two hours, preferably
the duration of the sauce cooking time. This is a wonderful recipe and
a palate pleaser.
Serves: 2 - 4. But two
rollups for hearty eaters.
Note: The roll of skin is generally 8" wide by
about 2 to 2 1/2 feet long, the diameter is about 2 " thick when
rolled. 1 roll up would be average for 2 to 4 people. The roll up would
of course go with a pasta dish as the meat portion.
