Rullepølse (Danish pronunciation: [ˈʁuləˌbølsə]), meaning "rolled sausage" in Danish, is a typical Danish type of head cheese. A piece of pork belly (but variants with beef flank or lamb are also well-known) is flattened out and is spread with herbs and seasoning (salt, pepper, allspice) chopped onions and in some variants also parsley), and then rolled up.
It is then boiled and shaped into a rectangle in a special press, cooled and sliced thinly as a cold cut (Danish, pålæg) to be placed onto the Danish open-faced sandwich, smørrebrød; usually garnished with a thick slice of gelatinized bouillon (Danish, sky) and rings of raw onion.
The rullepølse also exist in a Norwegian version, Ribberull, which is made of lamb shoulder boned, flattened, sewn to form a long rectangle, rolled, pressed, and steamed, as well as in a Swedish version, rullsylta.
