In British English, haslet or acelet is a pork meatloaf with herbs, originally from Lincolnshire. The word is derived from the Old French hastilles meaning entrails. In Lincolnshire, haslet (pronounced '/ˈheɪslɪt/' locally) is typically made from stale white bread, ground pork, sage, salt and black pepper.[1] It is typically served cold with pickles and salad, or as a sandwich filling. In England, it is commonly sold on a delicatessen counter.[citation needed]

Welsh haslet is traditionally made from finely minced potatoes, pigs' liver and onions.[2][3]

Haslet (in North American English) refers to the heart, lungs, liver, stomach, and other edible viscera of an animal, usually a hog.[4] In the U.S. South, these entrails are traditionally removed in one piece at hog-killing time and given to the poor.[citation needed]
