Hi poetryman6969! Those were the Philippines hotdogs i used. It seems Filipino sausages are red. Longganisa is a Filipino pork sausage but you can use chorizo if you want to. Yes, crack the eggs at the end of frying. Thanks and happy weekend!

poetryman6969 on April 10, 2015:

Those are the reddest hotdogs I have ever seen. I would like to try the dish of course but I would also like to see what longganisa is like by itself.

Do you add the eggs at the end to avoid overcooking them?

Very interesting food.

seems very delicious .. like it.. :)

Thelma Alberts (author) from Germany and Philippines on March 09, 2012:

Hi Peggy W,

Yes, Longganisa is a kind of sausage. It is a Filipino sausage made of pork. I sometimes used bacon or just bacon fat for the German fried potatoes for a change and it is very tasty, too. Your comment brings back the memory of my mother-in-law because she used to make this meal with roasted pork and caraway seeds when she was alive. Thanks for your stopping by.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 09, 2012:

Hi Thelma,

I am assuming that Longganisa is some type of sausage? My mother used to make German fried potatoes and simply used some bacon fat for the flavoring instead of putting in other types of meat. Serving them alongside a delicous pork roast with caraway seeds...yum! Thanks for bringing back these memories. Voted useful!

Thelma Alberts (author) from Germany and Philippines on March 09, 2012:

Thank you Brett. Let me know how you like the recipe, either the Filipino version or the traditional German version. Thanks for your SHARING. Have a great week.

There is a recipe I know that is quite similar to these. It has no meat, just the potato, bell peppers and onions. It's quite tasty too, I think it's the Greek version.

I would love to try this with our ingredients here in Jamaica. Thanks for sharing.
