Farinheiras Sausage

Farinheira is a Portuguese smoked sausage made mainly from wheat flour, pork fat and seasonings (white wine, paprika, salt and pepper). Its original recipe did not contain pork fat. It has a yellow/brown colour and is served in traditional dishes like feijoada or cozido à portuguesa. It is also eaten on its own, roasted or fried. In modern versions, it is previously cooked, then peeled and mixed with scrambled eggs and served in bread or toast as a starter.

Although it resembles a chouriço or other meat sausage, its taste is not meaty; it's tangy (but not hot), with a doughy texture and has a somewhat sweet finish in the palate. It is never cooked sliced unlike other sausages since its dough like content would pour out of the skin during cooking.
