Having grown up in Germany, I have eaten my share of cold cuts. It is no longer part of my regular diet, but I still like to indulge from time to time. One of my favorites is Head Cheese. Here are a few tips to make this cold cut special.
- Have it cut as thin as possible with paper in between (it crumbles easily)
- Prepare a light vinaigrette with finely chopped onions
- Place one or two thin slices of head cheese on a buttered slice of toast (garlic bread for example)
- Top with a light vinaigrette and serve it as open sandwich accompanied with a pickle
As mentioned, this is a rare indulgence for me, but when I serve it that way, something within me from my childhood is touched and it makes me feel good.
