Presskopf wurst is a variety of German head cheese that is made with different animal parts such as pork or calf head meat, rinds, bacon, pork heart, and sometimes pork blood or pork muscle meat. The sausage mixture is typically flavored with ingredients such as garlic, onions, pepper, salt, nutmeg, and sugar, and it is usually filled into sausage casings. The word presskopf means pressed head in German, and it refers to the method of pressing the sausage once it has gone through the process of scalding. The name of this cooked sausage varies from one region to another, with presssack, presswurst, and schwartenmagen being some of the common name variations. Presskopf wurst is typically enjoyed thinly sliced on top of bread, smeared with mustard or horseradish, or tossed with raw onions and vinaigrette. Tasteatlas
