I don't have a problem with eating the 'innards'. Menudo is one of my favorites and I would make it more often if it wern't for the fact I would be the only one eating it. Store bought chorizo has a lot of mystery ingredients, I still eat it once in awhile, but make my own more often. Minus the beef lips!

Dang........now I'm hungry.
Potted meat is one of the many things I grew up eating.
There is another thing I miss alot...Georgia Hash.
Menudo is GREAT!!! I wish it came in smaller cans around here as I am the only one that will eat it. Mrs Hoot ain't got much use for innards.

Not that I would eat them in the first place, just don't like them. You take potted meat spread them on a cracker with a piece of cheese, then arrange them on a platter, they look totally different and editable. Another example is canned corn beef, just dumped on a plate it looks like dog food, made into paddies and fried with eggs in the morning now that is an entirely different story.
No, not really. Spaghetti-os suck, and no matter how you present them, they still suck. Canned corned beef sucks, no matter how you present it. I recall sitting down in a redneck diner in south central VA, excited by the idea that this hole-in-the-wall was serving Ruebens - until my sandwich arrived, and it was canned corned beef.

You're using really, really bad examples to support your point here.

I don't mind the fact that chorizo (which is, after all, a sausage) contains (clearly listed on the package) various "un-couth" parts. I eat scrapple, and enjoy the hell out of it.

Potted meat is a whole other level - it's like it's made of everything not fit to be used in any other form. It's made of stuff the manufacturer doesn't think is good enough for even hot dogs... And yes, it tastes exactly like it sounds. A whole lot of cheap seasoning and some vague meat taste. And the texture? Perfectly captured by the picture in this thread. There are brands of cat food that look and smell more appetizing than potted meat. Though I've not tasted them, I'll wager they probably taste better as well...

That said, I'd love to see FN go way out on a limb and have potted meat be the secret ingredient in an Iron Chef competition, just to see what the hell these guys would do with it...

All I can say is - WOW! When you don't like something, you make no bones about it. I can understand that. I can't stand the flavor of mint, any mint. It makes me want to hurl. That's just the way my taste buds react to it. But, I would never tell anyone that it's just not fit to eat, or denegrate someone else's opinion of mint. To each his own. If I can doctor it and make something that tastes good to me out of potted meat, then others shouldn't try to tell me that my tastes or choices are disgusting. You can say, and I would support you completely in saying it, that you detest the look, flavor, and texture of potted meat. That's Ok.

My original question wasn't - do you think potted meat is disgusting, and why? It was - how do you make an edible potted meat sandwich?; or something to that effect.

We all have likes and dislikes, and except where we know that using something is dangerous, (and I know that there will be some here that will say potted meat is dangerous) we have no right to force our opinions on others. We can state our opinions, but need to qualify them as our opinions.

Remember always, one person's trash is another's treasure.

I eat Spam. I eat a lot of things that some people turn their noses up at. I grew up poor. There were never leftovers. Every bone was white when it left the table. I never liked the deviled ham or cocktail weinies but we ate them if we had to.

The one can we never opened again was "Treet", we prefered to be hungry after one trial.

A spam monti cristo is particularly tasty.
