A Beutelwurst is a German blood sausage (Rotwurst or Blutwurst), which contains more pieces of fat and flour than a normal Rotwurst.

Beutelwurst with bacon without meat

The name Beutelwurst comes from the fact that this does not come in a casing of intestine or a can, but in a linen or paper bag ("bag" = Beutel).[1] This bag is pressed for several weeks which gives the Beutelwurst a firm, light, dry consistency.
