Me and my Gabagool, I just Love it! Gabagool that is. Otherwise known as Capicola,Capocollo,Capicolla, and Ham Capicole .. Gabagool (Capicola) is a Italian Salumi porl product made from the pork neck or shoulder .. Unlike Salami, which is made of ground meat mixed with ground pork fat that is seasoned, salted and cured, Capicola is a whole piece of meat similar to prosciutto in that it is cured in a whole piece. Italian-AMericans particularly love their Gabagool and Gabagool Sandwiches either as part of a Sub Sandwich with Provolone, Salami, lettuce,onions, tomatoe, Olive Oil and Vinegar .. Some get Capicola with Provolone and Hot Peppers or the same without the Hot Peppers. I love Capicola with just Provolone or Gabagool & Egg with two scrambled eggs with 3 slices of Sweet Gabagool. Some like their Gabagool Hot, I prefer it sweet. Not that it is sweet with sugar, just that it’s not hot .. You can make Gabagool & Egg Sandwiches like I saide with a couple scrambled eggs and a few slices of Capicolla on a small hero or Kaiser Roll or Italian Bread .. OR you can make Gabagool & Egg by chopping the Gabagool and cooking it in a little olive oil and then add the eggs and scramble the sauteed Capicola inside the scrambled eggs and you can have it with Swiis or Provolone CHeese or not .. Anyway you make the Gabagool, it’s always good and much loved. Bon Apettito di Gabgool.
