What is a +Silog? Filipinos suddenly get their cravings for this type of meal when someone mentions it. Well it’s pretty simple for example when an English person asks for an English breakfast they know exactly what they are getting unless the restaurant mentions what’s excluded but usually it would be sausages, eggs, beans, mushrooms and toasts. Traditionally fried black pudding will also be on the side. +Silog is like that too! Silog basically equals to Si=Sinangag (garlic fried rice) and log= itlog (fried egg).
There are many types of +Silog, heres a list of them:
Tocilog = Tocino (sweet cured pork) / Sinangag / Itlog
Spamsilog = Spam / Sinangag / Itlog
Cornsilog = Corn beef (cooked with potatoes) / Sinangag / Itlog
Bangsilog = Bangus (marinated & fried milk fish) / Sinangag / Itlog
Longsilog = Longanisa (sweet Filipino sausages ) / Sinangag / Itlog
Tapsilog = Tapa (cured beef) / Sinangag / Itlog
These are the usual +Silog breakfast or brunch and today we have new editions like Sisilog which is Pork Sisig (sizzling pork) / Sinangag / Itlog
Here’s a quick fix recipe, I hope you enjoy it!
