Introduction
This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook (Hungary, 16th c.), entitled "Dishes Made From the Pigs Skin". [insert a brief description of dish here, possibly including any or all of the following: characteristics of the final dish, when or how it might have been served, and why you selected it]


The Source Recipe
The original text of the recipe is as follows:

Dishes made from the pig's skin. Skin the pig like I told you. Leave the head and legs on the skin, then slice it on its spine. This shall be the stuffing; if you have good beef and roast pork with bacon, cut them together, add spices and black pepper, stuff the pig and stitch it on its back legs where you cut it; put it on the skewer, roast it, but stitch the legs together. If you have no stuffing of this kind, stuff it with eggs and chicken.
