Along with Prosciutto, Mortadella is one of Italy’s most emblematic charcuterie items, beloved for a buttery, spicy flavor. Our Mortadella by Principe is an uncured version of this delicacy, made with 100% pure pork meat, specially selected, and using a traditional recipe from Bologna. The pork is minutely ground, blended with spices, and then cooked. Mortadella meat was originally eaten by peasants, and beloved for its smooth, very robust ham flavor, and the creaminess the pieces of fat imparts.
Because it hasn’t been cured, our Mortadella is mild and not salty, and this version does not have any pistachios – just simple, fine pork. and spices. It is fully cooked, so it’s safe for anyone to eat. Principe enforces strict meat standards and ensures that all of their meat products are all-natural, contain no antibiotics and no MSG.

Chop it up add to an omelet or scrambled eggs or bake it into a pizza. You can also enjoy it on its own, with a wedge of cheese and a cold beer. Presto, delicious!
