Let me first say that I did not choose to read Little House In The Big Woods.

Yes, its sad, but I was forced.

Anyways, back to the Headcheese.

According to Little House in the Big Woods, Headcheese is a delicacy that comes from the tender, moist flesh on a hog’s face.


For all of you out there that want to try to make Headcheese in your own kitchen, try this classic recipe.


Step 1: Find a hog.

Step 2: Kill your hog.

Step 3: Behead your dead hog.

Step 4: Boil head in big pot till the meat “falls off the face” as described in book.

Step 5: Mash the meat together.

Step 6: Invite your friends and family over for a yummy meal of hog-face, its sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

Fun Fact: Headcheese isn’t really cheese, its just gelatinous, jello-like fat from a hog’s face.

  2. Examining the word ‘HEADCHEESE’
    Head- makes sense, considering it is hog face
    Cheese- Um, well, it could make sense if hog face tasted like cheese…
