Scott, your mortadella sure looks gorgeous! At least your hot dogs did not dry out like mine did. I agree that it seemed a little too much work for an ok end product. Stuffing meat paste is no easy task. I may still have to try making mortadella. Great job!

I don't think you're in the minority, there were many of us not over enthused by the hot dogs or mortadella. But as we are all good charcutepaloozers we gave it a go. I'm looking forward to this months challenge much more!

You definitely were not in the minority with this challenge. I loved the results and I found the process interesting but it just seemed like a LOT of dealing with casings in a short space of time. When I am over "being over" casings, I will definitely try mortadella because everyone's results look absolutely amazing! Love your sandwich!
