Ginisang Munggo with Bagnet Recipe

Oh, stop it! We know Munggo is usually served during Fridays as a break from eating meaty dishes the whole week, but we just cannot help ourselves, especially because this one is topped with one of favorites – bagnet, specifically Bagnet by Ilocaneza! Yes, you read that right, we are giving this veggie dish a meaty twist by putting Ilocaneza’s thick cuts of delicious and sinful bagnet.

Ginisang Munggo is yet another popular dish here in the Philippines. Filipino households have it on a Friday so as to be able to say they are still living a healthy lifestyle! Just kidding! Filipino families love having this on a Friday, because it is such a nice and tasty way of ending a week filled of meats and all kinds of cravings. However, being the munggo and meat lovers that we are, we were not able to stop ourselves from adding a meaty dish on one of our fave veggie dish. Bagnet, on the other hand, is a popular meat dish too, with it being a delectable pairing to beer when friends and family are having a drinking sesh.

With that in mind, we opted to mix the two in order to bring something different to the table and to put both dishes in a different light – 1) the munggo solely being a veggie dish and 2) the bagnet being only a munch-on-it kind of thing among loved ones. These two dishes are so much more than what we deem it to be and that’s what we want for you to see as well. We just love putting a twist on something or mishmashing two totally different dishes together in order to make something really drool-worthy and would be able to bring something for everyone!

Our Ginisang Munggo with Bagnet, we believe, is truly not only for someone who likes vegetable or someone who is a fan of meat, because this scrumptious dish could become a favorite of anyone, regardless of which one – vegetable or meat – they are more leaning into. That being said, learn how to make this for-everyone dish by watching our Ginisang Munggo with Bagnet Recipe!
