Ketchup on Linguica: The Perfect Addition or Gross Blasphemy?
It has come to my attention that putting ketchup on linguica is blasphemy.
A friend of mine noticed that I put ketchup on a linguica dog one day and his exact words were, "Dude, what are you doing?"
He looked disgusted.
Confused by his offended tone, I simply replied "What? I'm putting ketchup on this linguica dog."
Electrifying conversation, I'm aware.
According to him, I was ruining the overall taste of the linguica and drowning out the flavor.
Now, I used to only put mustard on my linguica, but just a little -- for that extra zing. I switched condiment teams to ketchup when I met my fiancee, so I suppose I have her to blame for my blasphemous ways, even though I think it's delicious.
Am I wrong to put ketchup on a linguica dog or patty? Should any condiment touch the meat at all?
With the 106th Annual Feast of the Blessed Sacrament around the corner, I need to be prepared, etiquette-wise, before I make a fool out of myself in front of thousands of people. I can't be the only one who does this, right?

While I'm interested in what you think about the matter, I think I'll keep doing what I want when I want -- at least in private, away from any judgmental gazes at the most serious Portuguese food event of the year.
