Pölsa is a traditional Swedish dish, a type of hash similar to haggis and scrapple. The main ingredients are minced beef, liver, heart, onion, and pot barley, mixed with stock, black pepper, and marjoram. It is usually served with boiled or fried potatoes, beetroot, and sometimes a fried egg.
The dish plays a central role in Torgny Lindgren's allegorical novel "Hash" (Pölsan), in which two men go on a personal quest across postwar Sweden in search of a true Swedish hash.
