Buzòla is a traditional cured meat product from the Trento region in Italy. It is made from pork, typically the shoulder or leg, which is seasoned with a blend of spices and herbs before being cured and aged. Buzòla has a distinct flavor and is often enjoyed thinly sliced as an appetizer or in sandwiches.

One recipe that showcases the deliciousness of Buzòla is the Buzòla and Cheese Panini. To make this sandwich, thinly slice the Buzòla and layer it with your favorite cheese, such as fontina or asiago, between two slices of crusty bread. Grill the panini until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted.
