Some people say it's dog food, others love it. Tripe is a typical poor man's food of the past, but in Germany is has become almost forgotten, except in Swabia. My mother was born near Stuttgart, and in her youth she learnt to prepare all the traditional Swabian dishes. This is how she cooks tripe.
Now what to do with the mortadella I made a few days ago? Normally it is used sliced as a cold cut or part of an antipasti platter, it is also wondeful cubed along with an apertif. But mortadella can also be fried which makes it a great hot snack.
