Why..?

Why do they call it head-cheese when there is no cheese in it? just brains and stuff?

They call it "head cheese" because it's not just the brains, but all the meaty parts on the head of a pig. They boil it down, mix it with this gelatin gunk and set it in a cheese mold.

Ew.
...well, that goes on my list of grossest things to know...
ah...well I got the head part it was just the cheese part that was confusing
